Research & Development Cell:
History has shown that educational institutions across the globe have played an indispensable role in the phenomenal progress of humankind. In medicine or space, in technology or economics, battle lines are being drawn. To remain as a vanguard of discovery, one should be inquisitive like a scientist, resourceful like an engineer and creative like an artist. To triumph one needs results; publishable and applicable results. Research and Development (R&D) flourishes where young minds and experienced faculty work synergistically. At Saraswati College of Engineering, R&D is pursued with the following objectives:1. To acquire new scientific knowledge.
2. To design novel methodologies in all the fields of Engineering and Technology.
3. To develop new tools and techniques to expedite problem solving with special emphasis on rural and socially relevant issues.
The phrase "Research and Development" has a special significance apart from its conventional coupling of scientific research and technological development. As this process is usually associated with innovation as well, the synonym (R + D + I) can also be applicable. In general, R & D activities are conducted by specialized units or centres belonging to companies, academic institutions and state agencies. "Research and Development" normally refers to future-oriented, longer-term activities in science or technology, using techniques without predetermined outcomes and with broad forecasts of commercial yield.
At Saraswati College of Engineering, these are done to motivate the students and the faculty of the institution, to update the knowledge which leads to further investigation and progress and to give a hand to the industries in their product development. If such an effort does not exist, the growth of science or technology would be static. Knowing this, everyone is encouraged to do academic or industrial research, to involve in innovation or development and to use the knowledge for consultancy with the industries. Research, Development and Consultancy go hand in hand. All disciplines of the college are actively engaged on Research, Development and Consultancy activities. The R & D cell of this college would be active in registering for patents, copyrights, publications in conferences, organizing conferences, seminars and workshops.
All disciplines of the college would be engaged in R&D and consultancy activities. The R&D cell of this college would be active in registering for patents, copyrights, publications in conferences, organizing conferences, seminars and workshops. Faculty and students have been encouraged to be creative, since it is the creative aspect that induces newer thinking. Lectures and Demonstrations are made both for students and faculty to kindle their spirit of creativity both by our own faculty and from experts.
The management, knowing the importance of R&D has been magnanimous to sanction necessary funds for Research and Development. The college aims to have research centres in which faculty and students from various institutions outside the college besides the faculty and students from this college who are interested enhancing their qualifications register for their research degrees. The disciplines in which research centres have been proposed as a plan of further action are
2. Mechanical Engineering
3. Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering
4. Computer Engineering
5. Information Technology
To initiate contacts among researchers both in India and abroad, conferences would be mandatorily arranged. The faculty members and students would be encouraged to attend seminars and conferences conducted elsewhere. This would boost up the activities on research, in this institution.
