I feel it as my privilege to work as a Dean and Director (R&D) in the prestigious institution like DBIT. To uplift the image of the R&D, we are planning to organize various technical events in the campus with external funding from various organizations like ATAL INNOVATION Mission under NITI Aayog, SERB, DST, AICTE, DRDO, ISRO, EDII, NSTEDB, KCTU, MSME and from professional bodies like IEEE, IEI, IETE, CSI, ACCS which helps to update the knowledge of the faculty and students in the recent trends of technological growth.
Any educational institution’s growth depends on its research component. The quality research undoubtedly brings good ranking to the Institution. This includes various parameters like sponsored projects, the number of research publications in the SCI and Scopus indexed journals by the faculty, number of Ph.Ds available in the college and number of technical events being organized in the college. In the present day trend research is of prime importance apart from infrastructural facilities, teaching & learning processes for getting good accreditation grading and national level ranking for the institution. Unless the institution is strong enough in its research background, it will be difficult to compete with other educational institutions. We are encouraging the faculty to complete their Ph. D degree at the earliest. In the other perspective, the institution is providing financial assistance to faculty for presenting research papers at various conferences and symposia as a part of the research activity.
Research labs & TBI centers are essential in all the departments to promote quality research& to come out with innovative patentable products. For this we are putting Efforts along with experts to establish R&D laboratories& TBI centers with high- end equipment in various specialized fields. These labs will also be useful for executing UG, PG projects and to support consultancy projects in the departments. In addition to the above facts, research forum lectures for faculty, value-added classes for the students and guest lectures by eminent people from academia and industry are regular activities in the college. The faculty members are being motivated to organize events like workshops, international conferences/symposia, FDP on specific themes which will be useful to the faculty to update their domain knowledge. Faculties are also encouraged to publish research papers in the refereed journals and to apply for sponsored projects.
"All the Best"
