Details of R&D Centre

Vision

R & D centre at CBIT shall blossom into a nodal centre of national importance with global networon latest science and technology.

Mission:

“R&D centre at CBIT shall strive to be known for its

·         Applied research catering to the societal and technological needs of mankind

·          State of the art infrastructure supporting young scholars in research and development activities

·         Contributions towards Low power VLSI ,renewable energy, medical products, automotive and autonomous vehicles, nano/MEMS, sensor networks and software computing and other related areas

Objectives:

·         To create state of the art research lab facility for young engineers to carry out research in interdisciplinary domains of Basic science, Electronics, Mechanical, Civil  and Software Engineering

·         To pursue research and development in core research areas of Nano-technology,Green house, medical engineering, wireless communication, renewable energy, automotive and software enterprise and etc

·         To establish collaboration with national and international universities, research organizations and funding agencies to develop technology for commercial and defense applications

Short term goals (August 2015 – July 2017)

·         To set up R & D lab facility for VLSI, Nano/MEMS Technology, E-Manufacturing and  Software Engineering, concrete structures

·         To apply and work on funded research projects sponsored by AICTE, VTU, DST, ISRO and DRDO and other funding agencies

·         To encourage faculties and students to carry out research at the undergraduate level, post graduate level and research leading to PhD

·         To improve number of publications, quality of projects and file patents

·         To provide solutions for project students, organize national level conference, seminar and workshops for students, staff

Long term goals (2015-2020)

·         Establish centre for excellence in NANO/MEMS technology supporting R&D activities and product development

·         Establish collaboration with national/international universities for R&D activities in niche areas of biomedical and defense sectors

The R&D centre would encourage undergraduate students, post graduate students, research scholars and faculties to pursue research in their area of interest and participate in undergoing research activities @CBIT. The R&D cell would support the departments, students and faculties through research grants as well will provide required infrastructure to carry out academic research. The outcome of the research carried out will lead to publications, patents and product development. The academic research are classified into the following major categories:

Undergraduate/Postgraduate Research Program (URP)

Because independent research and creative work represent new kinds of challenges for many students, research staff will pay special attention in helping interested students in identifying the topics of research. The R&D centre will help students understand the process of refining their interests into more focused project topics, and will emphasize the role that immersion in an academic research in developing their scholarly pursuits. Faculties pursuing research or PG programs will be identified, and their area of work will be displayed for the students to choose. The URP matches students with faculty mentors and provide them with required training, infrastructure, nominal funds and technical resources. As part of our effort to improve student research experiences, we ask that supported students complete an evaluation. Reviewers examine the results of these evaluations closely. Interested students need to submit an application indicating there area of interest.

Funded Research Program (FRP)

This program is open for faculties and post graduate students to pursue their PhD and masters project respectively. R&D cell would strive to execute research projects in the core area of interests in collaboration with various agencies and institutions. The list of projects and requirements will be displayed on the notice board every year for the students to choose. Based on the interests the principal investigator would select research staff/research associates to work on the undergoing projects. The selected staff will be supported both financially as well technically in pursuing the research work. Publications and patent filling will be mandatory in this program. Interested members can discuss with the DEAN and submit their profile for selection process.

Research projects will be funded through three different grant schemes:

·         Funded research grants

·         MSME/DST/AICTE/VTU grants

·         R&D centre grants
