The National Initiative on Undergraduate Science (NIUS)


established Established :


The National Initiative on Undergraduate Science (NIUS), a major initiative of HBCSE (TIFR) concerning tertiary science education in India, was launched in the summer of 2004. With the thrust on promoting undergraduate research and learning, the NIUS program has been contributing towards the training of students and teachers in theoretical and experimental science, preparation of pedagogical material and R&D in science education/laboratory training.

One of the key ideas of NIUS proto-research projects is to internalize general scientific skills and practices common across different disciplines through sustained mentoring, along with discipline-specific content and conceptual enhancement, among undergraduate students. Along with Faculty members at HBCSE,  researchers from leading scientific institutions like BARC, TIFR, ICT(Mumbai), IISERs, IIT(Mumbai), NCRA (Pune), PRL(Ahmedabad), University of Pune and motivated teachers from local colleges of Mumbai interact and guide students for NIUS proto-research projects.
