The future is what we make it. At UPES, students get trained to become future ready domain professionals. We encourage curiosity and provide resources to the students to explore their chosen field of study. Students actively take part in the research & development activities under the constituent colleges and centres. An example of this is UPESSAT, Uttarakhand’s first Nano Satellite launched by UPES students and faculty. 11 laboratories are dedicatedly used for domain specific research & development activities at UPES.
UPES encourages participation from the students in academic as well as personal growth initiatives. Students enthusiastically participate in activities such as festive celebrations, social work, cultural activities, sports, seminars, workshops, industry visits, and more. Students are encouraged to attend national as well as international conferences within the country and abroad. This helps students get an opportunity to meet eminent professionals from varied industries through conferences, workshops, co-curricular & extra-curricular activities, etc. These platforms build confidence in the students as they interact, question, answer, and absorb the useful knowledge. Some of the recent examples to this are student participation at world innovation forum, the world business forum screening of Bill Clinton's speech, visit to Mexico, etc.
Celebration and fun activities are an integral part of the learning process. UURJA is the annual youth festival at UPES and is celebrated with a lot of passion, energy, and grandeur. Students from various institutions participate in this grand event every year, UPES Girls shooting team has won accolades in national as well as international level shooting events. Besides, girls also encouraged to participate in various games. Our cricket, basket ball, and cultural event teams have already made a mark in Uttarakhand Inter-university Youth Festival in which sixteen universities participated. Our students received appreciation for participating and creating real working models like Formula -1 Car, Tera Cycle, Automobile Vehicle, and many more.
UPES invites specialists from different sectors who share their experiences, accomplishments with the students and introduce them to the real functioning of different sectors. Senior professionals from the various domains and sectors are invited for deliberations and guest lectures at Seminars and Workshops as well as visiting faculty. These professionals, from India as well as abroad, visit UPES and interact with the young professionals and provide them insights into the possibilities and challenges in the respective domains. The students also get introduced to important aspects such as potential growth and future of the sector they have chosen.
UPES gives an opportunity to all its students to participate in the social as well as environmental initiatives that take place as a part of the university’s CSR activities. This also adds to the personal growth of the students as they come across the under-privileged people and get an opportunity to support them. This includes Green Initiatives, Each One Teach One, Blood Donation Camp, Road Safety, etc.
UPES hostels are well-built and well-managed to ensure a comfortable stay. The university provides a modern multi-storied Food Court with multi-cuisine menu and delectable food which is available for students to relish delicious food of various types. The University ensures that the students have a wonderful stay at the University in terms of psychological, academic and physical comfort as well as growth.
