ECOSYSTEM FOR INNOVATIONS

3.3.1. Institution has created an eco system for innovations including Incubation centre and other initiatives for creation and transfer of knowledge

The institution believes traditionally that a good researcher can only be good knowledge provider. It takes much care to create research ambiance and research facilities available to the students and research scholars within the campus. The college has a research committee which promotes research activities. The English Language Laboratory, Central Instrumentation Laboratory, Green House, Mushroom Cultivation Centre, Azola Cultivation and Multi-station Gym have been developed for the benefit of the up-coming researchers. The faculty, owing to their research interest in emerging areas and wide contacts around the world have conducted 85 seminars, conferences, workshops, training courses at national and international level.

  • The Department of Tamil conducts National and Inter-national seminars every academic year, based on a particular research area. With the start- up called ‘Nokku’ (Perspective), the faculty of Tamil conduct Inter-national seminar and publish the research articles presented in the seminar in the form of a book with ISBN.
