Sai University Chennai (SaiU) is paving the path for liberal education in India, offering interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary undergraduate programs in arts, sciences, technology, and law. As one of the country’s first international universities embracing the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020’s vision, SaiU aims to empower students through a holistic approach to learning.
Founder and Chancellor, Ramani, emphasized the importance of an interdisciplinary liberal education model in today’s AI-driven era. Tech companies are seeking young talent with diverse skills, and Sai University provides just that through its faculty composition. With 30% international faculty from renowned institutions like Stanford and Harvard, and 70% Indian faculty who are esteemed alumni of global institutions, SaiU ensures a well-rounded education for its students.
Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Jamshed Bharucha, highlighted the limitations of conventional education systems and their failure to equip graduates with the necessary skills for employability. SaiU’s “Spark the Imagination and Liberate the Mind” approach encourages students to transcend the confines of rote learning and explore various disciplines.
To engage with prospective students, parents, and current applicants, Sai University organized an event in Coimbatore. Attendees had the opportunity to connect with the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor, and Faculty to gain insights into the liberal education curriculum, undergraduate programs, and student life at SaiU.
