UIU Science Forum
UIU Science Forum is built upon the purpose of cultivating the interest of the students in different branches of natural science- physics, chemistry, mathematics and even biology. From the intermediate level to the undergrad- a significant transition happens to the students, particularly to the engineering students. They dive into the realm of applied field more. But no one can deny the importance of basic natural sciences and even more interestingly, many of our students have a thirst to know more about the pure science fields. In the undergraduate syllabus, they may get two-three courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry. But it is not enough for the enthusiastic students. To be more specific, students who want to participate in various competitions like Mathematics/Physics/Chemistry Olympiads need a platform to sharpen their background more. For the first time in UIU, a platform to face this demand is created. This platform is our UIU Science Forum. UIU Science Forum will be coordinated by Institute of Natural Sciences (INS), UIU. Founded in 2006, INS consists of three disciplines of sciences- physics, chemistry and mathematics. INS is committed to nurture and sharpen the intellectual growth and skills of the students through the application and dissemination of engineering. To prepare our students better for the Olympiads and also to give them a solid background on branches of physical sciences- UIU science forum will work passionately. The activities of UIU Science Forum include the arrangements of related seminars, workshops, training programs, intra and inter university Olympiads, talks etc. In the limited time allotted for the class, it is a duty to follow a carefully organized syllabus. But often the enthusiastic students need some more time, some more knowledge and some more guidance from the respected faculties. UIU Science Forum creates the ground of that interaction between students and faculties beyond the class time. We are at the very beginning of the journey of UIU Science Forum and we hope it will be one of the most engaging parts of UIU. It will evolve with time like all the things but the main theme will always be to nurture the need of knowledge in a more interactive, engaging and effective way.
