The SJC gives a chance to students to actively participate and develop their presentation skills. New students get the opportunity to develop newer research ideas through sharing of information with students doing their Doctoral studies. Moreover, students get the opportunity to understand subjects in fields that are essentially not their own.
An Industry Interface program has been initiated at Sunandan Divatia School of Science for students in Biological Sciences and Chemical Sciences. The program aims to keep the students abreast of the latest trends in the industry/research organizations through industrial visits and guest lectures and also explore career opportunities for students in the industry/research organizations. The affairs of industry interface program are managed by a joint faculty-student cell.
Sunandan Divatia School of Science celebrates ‘National Education Day’ (NED) to commemorate the birth anniversary (11th November) of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, a freedom fighter and the ‘First Education Minister’ of Independent India. As part of the NED celebrations, the school organizes a multidisciplinary symposium on Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Statistics which was initiated in 2011. At the event, lectures by eminent speakers from academia and industry are organized. Oral and poster presentation competition is held wherein students from the School as well as from different colleges and research institutions can present their own research projects on various themes.
Students are encouraged to take up summer internships at various academic and research institutions as well as industry. Assistance is provided for applying to these summer internship projects. In the past, students have done their internships at NIRRH, Jaslok hospital, Bharat Serum, Ipca Labs,
