Undergraduate Research Programme

An Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) is to encourage undergraduate students to experience the joy of research and what it means to be a researcher. Through the Undergraduate Research Programme, UGRP, the University provides several opportunities to students to deeply explore issues or ideas by either working on it independently under the supervision of a faculty or with a faculty member in their lab work or on their research projects. This programme tenders valuable preparation for graduate school and imparts exposure to a research-oriented career. It also provides an opportunity to work closely with a professor.


Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) as a part of the University Research Board (URB) will provide an opportunity to undergraduates from all disciplines to gain a lifetime experience through mentored research, scholarship, or creative engagements in which students and faculty mentors collaborate in the design and implementation of projects and the dissemination of results.

  • It also aims to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to explore a new field of knowledge, interdisciplinary learning, and a faculty mentored research experience in addition to their course curriculum.
  • The programme enables the students to consider research as a serious career path.
  • We have a great pool of faculty members engaged in various research projects; UGRP will give you an opportunity to be part of it in a constructive way.
  • Any student who is selected for UGRP project will be eligible to apply for UGRP scholarship. UGRP scholars must maintain a high level of academic success.
  • URB could organise a symposium where UGRP student members can present their research to the entire University community.

“In addition to doing research in the lab, UGRP participants will also be able to attend a series of specially designed workshops and seminars on various engaging research topics.”
