20th Century witnessed several discoveries and innovations in various fields of Science and Technology, which changed the course of human civilization and lifestyles of human beings. Innovations are going to be phenomenal in 21st Century. New disciplines of knowledge will emerge and focus will be on interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research leading to new designs, process, products, materials and technologies. It is necessary that brilliant young minds focus their attention, energies and talent on new innovations and discoveries.
Sri Venkatesa Perumal College of Engineering & Technology, Puttur will promote the research culture and would strive to provide necessary environment and facilities to nurture the creative minds. The role of the Research & Development Cell is to enhance research and development activities that would enable Sri Venkatesa Perumal College of Engineering & Technology to attain the status of a renowned intellectual institution. The R&D Cell is all set to motivate and encourage the faculty to carry out research work, generate project proposals, to tap funds from governmental and industrial funding agencies and establish Centers of Excellence in the college as well as to interact with industries. The Cell facilitates the faculty to enhance their academic qualification and to help them in proper planning and coordination of the research and development activities.
The Cell further helps the departments to analyze their strengths and weaknesses so as to identify the field of research in frontline or appropriate technology for tapping funds. The Cell periodically reviews the research work carried out by the faculty, while emphasizing the importance of industry institute interaction, and facilitates taking up project and consultancy work, which in turn, helps students in their training and placement. The R &D Cell aims to bridge the gap between demand and availability of trained manpower with adequate technical knowledge by encouraging the departments to organize extension programes for different categories of students.
Our institution 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. Our institution has signed MOUs with Corporate companies like Infosys and Indian Telecom Innovation Hub TBI (ITIH-TBI) to promote collaborative research and consultancy. R & D Cell is implementing Spoken Tutorial Projects (STP) Programme which is supported by Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB). Apart from Research & Development work, department will be sharing the knowledge by conducting Workshops, National and International Conferences. The R & D cell is also engaged in conducting the activities related to Entrepreneurship Development Programme.
Apart from the ongoing projects, our faculty members sent research project proposals to various funding organisations such as DST, UGC, CSIR and AICTE etc., for minor/major projects.
