Shiv Nadar University (SNU) is a private interdisciplinary University in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is part of a series of initiatives launched by the Shiv Nadar Foundation, a private foundation funded by Shiv Nadar, founder and chairman of HCL Enterprise. Its stated aim is "to create an enduring, research-led, inter-disciplinary university at par with premiere education institutions worldwide". Education at the University is oriented towards participation in public institutions, commercial enterprises and organizations in civil society.
Curriculum approach: The curriculum is designed to allow students to major in a particular subject while also studying and experimenting with a range of other minor and elective subjects (with only limited number of seats in minor courses). This allows every student with high SGPA to pick and choose a wide spectrum of subjects and some options even for average students.  
Research: Research centers are part of the schools, to encourage collaboration amongst the research and coursework areas and to provide opportunity for coursework students to participate in research projects. The research centers in the campus are under construction.
