Research and Development Cell


Research is the elixir of academics in a college setup. It simplifies concept building and transforms new ideas into innovations in pursuance of a new era of passion for researches. A well-recognized way to deal with this paradigm is for the teachers to be active researchers in the areas in which they teach. As researchers, they need to understand the past and recent developments in their subject areas. Many high ranking Universities / institutions in the world and India exhibit a very high correlation between quality teaching and R & D activities. Even among the affiliated colleges which have Ph. D. faculty on their rolls are engaged in R & D activities have proven themselves as burgeoning entrepreneurs.

The Research and Development Cell aims to nurture research culture in the College by promoting research in newly emerging and challenging areas of Technology, Science and Humanities. It encourages the students and faculty to undertake the research in newly emerging frontier areas of Technology, Science and Humanities including multidisciplinary fields. This enhances the general research capability of budding technocrats by way of participating in conferences, seminars, workshops, project competition, etc and undertaking pilot projects alongwith research extension activities.
