Interdisciplinary Science Colloquium
Home Research  Interdisciplinary Science Colloquium
The colloquium provides an opportunity for doctoral research scholars, teaching faculty and visiting experts to share their research experiences with one another. It breaks down barriers of communication and helps merge traditionally distinct scientific disciplines, thereby creating new opportunities for research.
All the science departments (across campuses) of the university participate, using the videoconference facility. The topics for 2016/17 were:

  • Low-Cost Biomaterials for Bioprocessing and Plasmonic Applications

By preparing students merely for answering certain questions in examinations, they are induced to concentrate only on certain portions of a subject and not the subject as a whole. There is a need for an inter-disciplinary approach so that the connection between one subject and another is properly understood.
