Atria University, an upcoming University backed by Bangalore based business conglomerate – Atria Group, launched The Beyonder Fellowship 2020 for undergraduate aspirants. The Fellowship, commencing August 17, 2020, aims to challenge select young minds to be frontier-thinkers, imagine a radical future, and break new grounds with their minds. The courses, open to students who have completed Class 12th in 2020, will be a free-of-cost three-week-long, online program in Applied Robotics, Discovering Data Science and Fueling Inquiry. The courses have been co-developed and delivered by noted academicians, industry experts like HoloSuit and ThinQ, and the Atria University academic team.
The Fellowship is a step towards bringing a radical shift to learning by encouraging students to chase their limitless spirit of discovery and inquiry. It aims to fuel their ambition to create a large-scale impact in the world. Committed to enabling young minds to learn from the highs, lows, and everything in between, the Fellowship is inspired by the University’s core vision of Beyonding. Beyonding is not just a belief. It is a clarion call for young minds to push the boundaries of what they know and what’s possible. Atria University has created a futuristic sanctum to prepare Beyonders to take charge and create value in the world of tomorrow.
The Beyonder Fellowship program offers exceptional learning and career propelling experience through courses that address challenges of the future. Due to the disruption caused by Covid-19, credible learning sources are the need of the hour for students. With this new offering, Fellows will have access to 60 hours of online, inquiry-driven learning sessions, interactive learning opportunities, and practical application of real-world robots, data-engineering concepts, machine learning skills, and more. The Fellowship program will grant up to 4 early college credits to Fellows who are part of Atria University’s 2020 batch. All Fellows will also be awarded a Fellowship Certificate on course completion.
The courses will be conducted online through Xcelerator, an online learning and placement platform that allows Atria University students to work on industry-driven and designed projects. And, access diverse learning modules and new-age career opportunities.

Commenting on the Fellowship, Sunder Raju, Founder, Atria University, said, “With this Fellowship Program, the university wants to usher a new learning revolution for young frontier thinkers looking to build a radically better future. Our goal is to create transformative and accountable citizens of tomorrow. And, prepare them to navigate through fast-paced disruptions the future portends. To do that we need to embrace diverse technology tools to bypass the classic classroom delivery. And, create flexible learning pathways that will allow the multitasking youth of today to learn both constantly and consistently. Thus, empowering them to independently identify problem statements and find resources to solve them.”
As per Shaheem Rahiman, CEO, Atria University, the essence of the Fellowship program is to reassure high school graduates of 2020 and help them gain confidence that they have the power and capability to transform the world. He further added, “The only way to grow is to break new grounds, look beyond roadblocks, and learn to learn better every day. We believe that education can be a real game-changer for students who are sincerely looking to impact the world. Building the right skills can help them remain agile. And, reconstruct their career paths in accordance to the evolving marketplace. We must extend flexible learning pathways for students to develop their ability to learn, critically evaluate, and apply diverse concepts that come their way. And, prepare them for careers and world-challenges that don’t yet exist.”
