Our campus is witnessing an exponential growth in R&D activities. Apart from a large consultancy work undertaken by our engineering departments, academic research gains its momentum day by day. Nearly 200 research scholars are undergoing their Ph.D in various fields in all the departments. We have introduced M.S by Research in all engineering departments in order to cater the aspiring engineers directly to pursue their research. Young faculty members holding doctoral degree are offered a seed money of Rs.50,000/- to start their research. Papers have been published by our faculty members and research scholars in different refereed journals of international and national repute. Research papers have been presented in various conferences, seminars and symposia held at national and international levels. Seminars, conferences and symposia at national level were organized by various departments of our institute.
Our institute has signed MOUs with industries and institutions in and abroad to promote collaborative research and consultancies. MOU signed with BHEL, our neighbouring industrial campus provides an opportunity for our young researchers to use the infrastructure in BHEL. BHEL offers scholarships for such research scholars pursuing PhD and MS. The MUO signed with our then parent Bharadhidasan University looks forward collaborative research activitiesto be undertaken in both campuses. Another MOU has been signed with NIMS Japan for the collaborative research in the area of nanotechnology. MOUs with IBM and HP, leading software industries have been executed. HP has offered a Chair position to monitor the ongoing HP projects undertaken by our students.
Apart from the ongoing projects, our faculty members have obtained major projects funded by DST, CSIR and AICTE.
