After becoming a Deemed-to-be University, the university introduced interdisciplinary Post-Graduate programs in the niche areas of Agri-Informatics, BioInformatics; and Bio-Medical Engineering. Apart from facilitating post-graduate education program in a manner that all students have opportunities to access several disciplines in all knowledge areas, the university also has research areas, not oriented towards any particular department, but built around thematic concerns. This has enabled researchers from several disciplines to work together and share knowledge and information.
As the identified areas by the university have recently emerged as compared to many other established fields and core educational programs, therefore, at this juncture these emerging areas are highly interdisciplinary, which are influenced by and overlapped with computer science, electronics, biotechnology, pharmacy and management disciplines. Consequently, in accordance with UGC guidelines that the deemed-to be University should have among its primary objectives Post-Graduate instruction and training in such branches of learning as it may deemed fit, and research for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge; the university strategically started and proposed other several innovative and interdisciplinary programs also so as to supplement the scientific requirements of the chosen emerging areas.
The university undertook teaching and research as essential ingredients of its activities with emphasis on research productivity, innovations in teaching and progress in emerging areas through its Post-Graduate and Doctoral programs. Each stream has a very strong research-focus and industry aligned curriculum. With an understanding that to carry out research of the highest quality, it can no longer merely be an 'in-house' affair, the university has joined hands with a number of universities and research organizational for collaboration in research. The university organizes workshops, seminars, conferences and brain storming sessions at national and international level by the experts from academia, industry and research organizations for identifying potential areas of research in these emerging areas, develop inclusive syllabi, build knowledge base with innovative pedagogy, establish linkages and tie-ups with renowned institutes and universities at national and international levels.
