Programme In-charge's Message

The Sunandan Divatia School of Science (SDSOS) is a newly founded endeavor of the prestigious SVKM’S NMIMS (Deemed to be University), in its efforts to diverge to various disciplines of higher education and learning. The SOS evolved in 2007-2008, with a view to provide undergraduates and post graduates an opportunity to embark on a challenging, yet exciting domain of Pure and Applied Sciences. At the SOS, we offer unique multi- as well as inter-disciplinary programs, viz, Post graduate program in Statistics, Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Physiotherapy; Integrated Post-graduate-Doctoral program in Biological Sciences and Chemical Sciences and a Doctoral program in Biological Sciences and Chemical Sciences.

There is a major emphasis on ‘Research’ in all the programs offered at the SDSOS. We are strongly driven by a highly qualified scientific talent pool. The focus is on applied research in different areas of life sciences, chemical sciences, biomedical science, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Cosmetics and Perfumery and other allied areas.

Our strategic plan involves inclusion of innovative areas of inter-disciplinary research, in specific areas through the application of new and cutting-edge technologies.

I welcome you all to an enjoyable and stimulating learning experience at the SDSOS and look forward to working together to help us achieve our goal, to be recognized as a ‘Centre of Excellence’.
