Jawaharlal Nehru University School of Computational and Integtrative Sciences - JNUSCIS
The School of Computational and Integrative Sciences (SC&IS) has the mandate to promote inter-disciplinary goal-oriented research and innovate in the areas broadly related to computational sciences, such as computational & systems biology; biophysics & simulations, artificial intelligence & neural systems; high density data analysis using mathematics and statistics and expand into other areas in quantitative sciences including economics, finance, neurobiology and epidemiology.The School of Computational and Integrative Sciences since 2010 was the culmination of the progress made by the DBT supported Bioinformatics Centre-BIC, since the year 1989 and its up-gradation to the School of Information Technology (SIT) in 2001. The School is recognized by the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) as a Centre of Excellence (COE) in Computational Biology & Bioinformatics and by the University Grants Commission (UGC), in its XI Plan, as a Centre for Complex Systems Studies. An initial effort of the School to provide services through BIC was augmented by the Communication and Information Services (CIS) which facilitates electronic communication, internet facilities, video meetings etc and the High Performance Computational Facility, which scaled computational infrastructure required for the entire university.The academic program of the SC&IS is focused on the core area of Computational and Systems Biology. Efforts are on to understand the Complex-biological, social and economic-Systems with the computational strength within the School and innovate in integrative understanding of such systems. The School offers at the moment a two year M.Tech program in the broad area of Computational and Systems Biology. The pre-Ph.D./Ph.D. programs are geared towards the faculty driven research activities in the areas of: comparative genomics, structural biology, biophysics, in-silico drug design, biological evolution, bio-molecular simulations, data mining & analysis of large scale data, systems biology, robotics, complex systems & artificial intelligence.
Jawaharlal Nehru University Placement Cell (JNUPC) was opened in the year 2008, and we are happy to inform that since then we are securing our students future. JNUPC will uphold the quality of the education and the social responsibility by giving a respectful job and opportunities to its students. Under JNUPC numerous programme will be organised to improve student's skill. JNUPC will try to place all the students who are seeking a respected opportunity to get engaged in government institutions, non-government institutions and other organizations.
