The courses in Sai University will be taught by a top-notch team that has global exposure in education and legal practice. Faculty members are alumni of the finest schools in the world, including Harvard, Stanford, Dartmouth, IIT, Yale Law School, Columbia University, University of Warwick, and more.
John C. Mitchell is a pioneer in cybersecurity and online education. His first research project in online learning started in 2009, when he and six undergraduate students built Stanford CourseWare, an innovative platform that expanded to support interactive video and discussion. CourseWare served as the foundation for initial flipped classroom experiments at Stanford and helped inspire the first massive open online courses (MOOCs) from Stanford.
Sherman Teichman is Professor of the Practice of International Relations and Global Affairs at SaiU. A pioneer in education to promote global engagement, he is the founding director emeritus of the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL) at Tufts University in Massachusetts (1985-2016).
Geraldine Laybourne is a media leader and entrepreneur. Her first venture was the Media Center for Children, which she co-founded because she was concerned about the media her children were watching. She was later hired as a program manager at Nickelodeon, a year-old network, where she initiated the focus-group approach to programming.
Michael is the Director of the SAGE Center for the Study of Mind at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 1964 he received a PhD from the California Institute of Technology, where he worked under the guidance of Roger Sperry, with primary responsibility for initiating human split-brain research.
Ken George is Professor of Anthropology in the Australian National University (ANU) College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University, having served previously at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Harvard University, and as Editor of the Journal of Asian Studies (2005-2008).
Dr. Krithi Ramamritham has spent almost equal lengths of time at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and at IIT Bombay as a Chair Professor of Computer Science and Engineering. He has served as Dean (R&D) at IIT Bombay and headed IIT Bombay’s Center for Urban Science and Engineering (CUSE).
SaiU offers the flexibility to pursue your interests in many combinations. Students may choose their major at any time from admission to the beginning of the second year, and they may switch their choice provided enough time remains to complete their requirements. Students will be expected to take an average of four courses each semester. Each course is the equivalent of four credit-hours.
For a 3-year B.A./B.Sc., a student would take 8 Foundation Courses, 2 Communications Courses, 3 Frontier Courses (this includes 36 Frontier Modules. 12 modules are equivalent to 1 course), 10 courses toward a major (including required major courses and elective major courses), and 4 elective courses (either toward a minor, or any other courses). Internships, research projects, or a thesis may count as courses with approval.
For a 4-year B.Tech., a student would take 8 foundation courses, 2 Communications Courses, 2 Frontier Courses (18 Frontier modules and one required course on computing and data science(C&DS). 12 modules are equivalent to 1 course. This C&DS course is equivalent to 0.5 course), 16 courses toward a major (including required major courses and elective major courses), and 6 elective courses (either toward a minor, or any other courses). Internships, research projects, or a thesis may count as courses with approval.
A student may do a Major in Arts & Sciences and a Minor in Computing & Data Science, or vice versa. With approval of a well-developed proposal, a student may construct an Interdisciplinary Major that combines Arts & Sciences with Computing & Data Science, for example, Digital Arts, Digital Humanities, or Public Health Data Science. A Double Major may also be possible with careful planning and approval.
Frontiers courses are taught in both, first and the second semester of the first year. The objectives are to expose students to a broad spectrum of cutting edge ideas and to introduce them to thought leaders and practitioners from around the world.
Students in the School of Arts & Sciences must take 36 modules and in the School of Computing & Data Science must take 18 modules, selected from either course in any combination.

The One Year LL.M. Program in Regulatory Studies aims to produce academic leaders for the 21st century – individuals with a firm footing in law and regulation, an interdisciplinary outlook to this vast area, cutting edge research skills, and a sub-specialization in one of three clusters, ie. infrastructure and sustainability, corporate and financial regulations, or technology law and policy.
There are 3 collaborating schools at Sai University to engage students in the study of a broad range of academic and professional disciplines.
An innovative, diverse range of disciplines offering majors with over 20+ minors.
The pedagogy at SaiU is adapted to how the brain learns, in contrast to traditional modes of learning. Instead of relying only on interminable lectures and mugging for final examinations, we emphasize participation, discussion, creativity, experiential learning, oral and written communication — the flipped classroom concept.
We offer a range of interactions with students and faculty from abroad, taking advantage of hybrid modes of learning. These include programs abroad as well as international collaborations in India.
In addition to standard subjects (Computer Science, Economics, History, Literature, Music, Physics, Psychology), we are among the first multi-stream universities in India to offer undergraduate majors and elective courses in Cognitive Science, Neuroscience, Child Development, International Relations, Women’s/Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Computational Genetics and Astronomy/Space Science, and Public Health Analytics.
Courses in the first year at SaiU will introduce students to distinguished professors from around the world, many of whom are the originators of ideas being taught.
Traditional courses are offered within academic subjects. At SaiU we also offer courses on the big intellectual and practical challenges of our time, which must be approached from multiple disciplines.
Over 15+ clubs and societies for the overall development of students.
Complete career assistance in internships and placements for students and in-house counselling for higher-ed aspirants.
SaiU is offering scholarships from 25% upto full tuition fee waiver based on the merit of the student. We seek students who are intellectually curious and who want to participate, create, communicate, imagine, experiment, discover and innovate - under the mentorship of outstanding professors. With our scholarship scheme, we want to help and enable deserving students in their pursuit of knowledge from our world-class university. To avail the scholarship, apply to our programs now!
