Sponsored Research

The University is actively interacting with various laboratories of national research organisations like ISRO, DRDO, DST, DBT and Central Ministries like Power, New and Renewable Energy, Environment and Forest, Human Resources, Agriculture, IT and Electronics and undertake research work. So far, more than 120 such research projects have been completed and this is helping the University faculties to build research infrastructure as well as keep the faculty engaged in research activities and help the research assistants and associates financially. The Directorate acts as an interlink between the funding organisations and the research teams and basically the directorate undertakes project management so that the research teams are relieved from burden of project management.

Director’s Message:


Our University has a strong focus on Applied Research to be on the frontiers of our educational system. In order to facilitate and coordinate sponsored research projects, the University has setup a Directorate of Sponsored Research (DSR) to plan and coordinate the research administration process.

The thrust activities of the DSR are:

  • 1. Initiate and facilitate various activities for submission of research proposal and periodic review process
  • 2. Indentify research calls from funding agencies to the faculties for writing proposals
  • 3. Liason with foreign delegates for promoting international collaborative research
  • 4. Support principal investigators and their team members to submit key deliverables of the project along with financial reports
  • 5. Ensure timely completion of research projects to the sponsoring organisations

Our University has actively worked with National and International organisations in Government, Public and Private sectors to carryout research and generate knowledge for the benefit of the Society. In particular, Research organisations like ISRO, DRDO, DST, DBT and many more have provided research grants for pursuing advanced research. So far the Faculties of the University have undertaken more than 100 funded research projects and have filed more than 65 patents.
