The College has a Research Cell that monitors and guides the research activities of the Teachers:

  • Through Staff meetings the Research Cell disseminates information about funds available from various funding agencies, and provides support to Teachers to prepare and submit proposals.
  • Follow-up meetings are held to ensure that Teachers submit proposals.
  • After a project is sanctioned, the Expert Research Committee helps in purchases of equipment through the research funding.

Our Degree College Staff have completed several important Major and Minor research projects, funded by prestigious institutions such as UGC, BCUD, AICTE and the Asiatic Society. In the last 5 years, 2 major projects (approximate value of Rs. 16 lakh) and 16 minor projects (approximate value of Rs. 13 lakh) were undertaken and completed.

The following table lists the projects undertaken and completed between 2009-10 and 2015-16:
