University Faculty


Since the motive of the Vidyodaya Undergraduate Research Day (VURD) is to foster a dynamic culture of research among undergraduates, particularly the students of the final year, the program will comprise the following activities:

  1. Pre-conference training: The students who write an undergraduate dissertation are trained by their supervisors appointed by the relevant academic departments. Training will also be provided to the students through workshops on writing extended research abstracts.
  2. 2. Publishing: The publication of undergraduate research abstracts is given primary importance as a form of recognizing their research efforts. With the supervisors’ permission, the students may use the names of their supervisors as joint publishers. 
  3. Day of Research: 

• The selected abstracts (approximately 200) will be presented by the undergraduates with the participation of the academic staff of the Faculty.

• A poster session will be introduced this time, selected from the abstracts submitted for VURD 2020.


All the presenters are awarded a certificate as a presenter of the conference.
