Research and Development at First Year Engineering

“Take up one idea! Make that idea in your life, think of it. Dream of it and live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves every part of your body be full of that idea and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success”, said Swami Vivekananda. This is the “Success Mantra” for the Research & Development for the faculties as well as students. Our Philosophy is to nurture creativity and innovative thinking abilities through possible exposure to the various Engineering subject applications which they study during first year. Various technical events and workshops are organized to trigger creativity, innovation and project based learning such as robotics, PCB designing, model and poster making , matholic- weekly puzzle competition, mega technical event “SPECTRUM ” exclusively for first year.
