About Navrachana


There are five important aspects that direct the new educational paradigm at Navrachana University: First, professional education must prepare students with strong disciplinary insights needed to address the challenges confronting the professional community and inculcate a sense of lifelong learning to be successful and excel overtime. Second, offer interdisciplinary education that cross-fertilize learning with new ideas from disparate disciplines; so collision at the fringes raise appropriate questions and create innovation. Third, general education must inform students about the issues that arise in their lives, personally, professionally, and socially and help them to be reflective about their beliefs and choices, and their presuppositions and motivations. Fourth, make the process of learning more effective through exposure into real working conditions by practically applying knowledge and skills learned in the classroom. Fifth, invite students to work on "messy", seemingly intractable problems through a focus on social entrepreneurship and address pressing problems in our immediate community. Disciplinary-specific entrepreneurship is being developed to create job creators who will create opportunities for themselves and for others.

Four schools make up the Navrachana University - School of Liberal Studies and Education with BSc., BA(Journalism & Mass Communication), BEd., MEd., ECCE, MSW, MSc(Chemistry) and PhD, School of Environmental Design and Architecture provides Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Design (Interior); School of Engineering and Technology offers Bachelor of Mechanical, Electrical, Civil and Computer Science and Engineering, and School of Business and Law offers BBA, BBA-Law, MBA, BCA, and MSc(IT). All Educational Programs follow modular, semester-wise curricula and allow taking courses that cut across program boundaries. The unitary character allows the University to innovate new educational and pedagogic models grounded in interdisciplinary thinking and capitalize on the shared infrastructural and educational resources to achieve a rich academic and life experience.

Division of Life Sciences

Life Science: The Masters Course lays emphasis on the overall development of laboratory skills of a research student coupled with an expansion of his/her knowledge base through specialized inputs for the course. The course work comprises of lectures and practicals along with skill building through technical and research oriented programs. The course is reviewed regularly in consultation with our Academic Advisory Board, which comprises of experts from academia, research institutions and industry from all over India. Thus, the course is tailor made to fulfill the requirements needed to compete with the current developments in scientific research. Along with the permanent faculties, regular lectures are also conducted by visiting faculties who are experts in their respective fields. Apart from the course work, the Faculty also conducts Guest lectures by eminent academicians and scientists and paper presentations (Journal Club) to ensure learner centric environment. In addition, methods like quiz, discussions, tutorials, Industry visits etc. are also envisaged by the faculty to benefit the students. There is state-of- art infrastructure and advanced laboratories with modern instrumentation needed for pursuing quality research and training.

5-Year Integrated Biomedical Science: 21st century belongs to the Science of life. One shall witness tremendous growth in sectors like Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Clinical Data Management, Molecular Diagnostics, and Biomedical Industries. Master`s in Biomedical Science shall focus on cellular and molecular approaches by providing an understanding of basic concepts with holistic view to provide a broad thorough and intellectually challenging approach in the areas of Biological Science. The focus will be on training the students in both theory and applications of specialized areas. This course is specially designed for students interested in medical and clinical aspects of Biology. As on other areas of Biology, the cutting edge of research in medicine is primarily focused at molecular level. Looking into the trends in current applications for such programs in research and industry, specializations are offered in Molecular medicine, Drug discovery and design, Reproductive Biomedicine and Human Genetics. This course is thereby tailor made to suite the demands of the ever expanding science of molecular biology and is one of its kinds to be offered in Gujarat.

The B.Sc M.Sc integrated program places special emphasis on development of analytical skills, communication skills, and entrepreneurship. The use of ICT tools is unique to the program. Choice-based electives from different Programs of the University offer opportunity to explore diverse interests in an interdisciplinary manner and enlarge the educational space. Social connect and know-your- community is achieved through a hands-on project KHOJ, wherein students from many majors across the university work collaboratively and apply disciplinary education in an inter-disciplinary manner to solve complex social problems and bring about social innovation. A capstone project grounded in science and its application offers opportunity to demonstrate knowledge and proficiency in the sciences.

About Baroda


Baroda is situated on the banks of the river Vishwamitri (whose name is derived from the great saint Rishi Vishwamitra). The city was once called Chandravati, after its ruler Raja Chandan, then Viravati, the abode of the brave, and then Vadpatra because of the abundance of banyan trees on the banks of the Vishwamitri. From Vadpatra it derived its present name Baroda or Vadodara.

Baroda is known as a ‘Sanskari Nagari’, meaning, a ‘cultured city’. It is certain that most of the visitors by and large are in agreement. The city does indeed have rich cultural traditions. And today’s Barodians have quite a full and hectic cultural life throughout the year.

The remarkable trait about Baroda is its cosmopolitan nature. Though the city represents widely different identities, interestingly, most participate in all activities. So, the culture of the city is not just history or heritage; it is dynamic, ever-changing and alive. Baroda is one of India’s most cosmopolitan cities thanks to the vision and broadmindedness of the erstwhile rulers, the Gaikwads. Subsequent industrialisation, the proliferation of academic activities and a strategically important geographical location have made Baroda welcome to a wide variety of people from all over India and also from all over the world.

More or less, every Indian community finds an active identity in this city. This bonhomie co-existence is reflected in the social fabric and cultural life of the people. In all of this, the sprawling and cosmopolitan educational institutions and the large number of local, national and foreign industries act as a catalysing and unifying force.

The average Barodian is open to the world and overflowing with hospitality, as the history and growth of the city aptly testify.

Baroda has a rich historical background. The greatest period in the Maratha rule of Baroda started with the accession of Maharaja Sayajirao III in 1875. It was an era of great progress and constructive achievements in all fields. Maharaja Sayajirao was one of the foremost administrators and reformers of his times. He initiated a series of bold socio-economic reforms. He attached great importance to economic development and started a number of model industries to encourage initiative, and then handed back the working industries to private enterprise. He started model textile and tile factories. It is as a result of his policy of industrial development that Baroda is today one of the most important centres for textile, chemical and oil industries. He introduced a number of social reforms. He also lay great emphasis on education. He boldly introduced compulsory primary education and a library movement (the first of its kind in India) to augment his adult education scheme.

Till the early 1960’s Baroda was considered to be a cultural and educational centre. But from the early 1960s Baroda's industrialisation took wings. Alembic pharmaceuticals, Sarabhai chemicals and Jyoti industries were the first ones to be established in Baroda. Baroda then witnessed a sudden spurt in industrial activity with the commissioning of Gujarat Refinery followed by many large-scale industries such as GSFC, IPCL, GACL, Heavy Water Project and Gujarat Power Company limited etc. This in turn led to the commissioning of many large, medium and small scale industries.

The city is on the major rail and road arteries joining Mumbai with Delhi and Mumbai with Ahmedabad. Because of this, Vadodara is known as a ‘Gateway to the Golden Corridor’. All superfast and express trains halt at Vadodara Railway Station. Vadodara also has an airport which is very well connected with the other major airports of India. There is also an international airport at Ahmedabad just about 100 km away from Baroda.

Public transport vehicles within the city include buses, autorickshaws and taxis. There are a few private bus services too. Of course, there are many people who use their own vehicles – cars, scooters, motorcycles and bicycles. Private taxis are also available.
