Teaching and Research are the main functions assigned to any institute. Teaching is a prime function and needs to be performed at the highest level of competence; that is possible only when the faculty is involved in the research activity.
Research is an original contribution to the existing stock of knowledge making for its advancement. It is the pursuit of truth with the help of study, observation, comparison, experiment, collection of facts or data, analyzing the facts to reach certain conclusions either in the form of solution(s) towards the concerned problem or in certain generalizations for some theoretical formulation. In short, the search for knowledge through objective and systematic method of finding solution to a problem is research.
Research is the extensive expansion of the existing stock of knowledge through high concentration of energy, effort and intellectual thought process that gives new dimensions to ideas, which produce far-reaching and everlasting results.

In Research and Development, one does research for the development of new techniques/ methods for inventing and improving a product as per the requirements of industry / society in terms of quality, cost, manpower, energy consumption, time etc.
To facilitate all the R & D activities in our institute among students and faculty members the R & D cell is functional and is being steered by the Director, Dean (R&D), Heads of Department and active representatives from each department. A unique incentive scheme was introduced in 2017 for encouraging and boosting R&D culture in the institute.
