R&D Funded Project Cell

R & D Head

Dr. P.Pugazhendiran

Research and Development incorporates a special significance with the exception of its conventional coupling of research project and technological development. The role of R & D Division of the college is to enhance research and Development activities to enable IFET college of Engineering to become a renowned Intellectual corporation fostering excellent research, development, sponsored projects, consultancy, continuing education and industry Institute Interaction in addition to wonderful teaching.

The R & D division motivates the faculty members and Students to carry out research work in areas of their interest, generate project proposals to seek grants from various funding agencies, establish Centers of Excellence in the college. At IFET Engineering College, 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. All disciplines of the college are actively engaged on Research, Development and Consultancy activities. The R & D cell of this college has been active in registering for patents, copyrights, publications in conferences, organizing conferences, seminars and workshops.

The management, knowing the importance of R&D has been magnanimous to sanction necessary funds for establishment of Laboratories with Lab equipment towards Research and Development. The R & D cell is very active in encouraging registration of patents as one of the IPR activities.
