Research is the central pillar of UPES, that is not only conducted but also driven by eminent faculty. To widen the roots of research in the institution, a new scheme titled "SHODH" is launched especially for undergraduate students. The scheme aims to enable the students to innovate through investigations and validations under the guidance of expert faculty members. The scheme introduces the students to the research eco-system at UPES to promote product development and entrepreneurship. The scheme encourages the student to embark into multidisciplinary research by choosing their own teams and mentors. From the year of its inception, the scheme has delivered outcomes in the form of patents, products and original research articles that are published with high impact journals and also startup.
