Message from the Dean (R&D)
It gives me immense pleasure that the R&D Profile of the Institute is finally published as a consequence of the concerted effort of the team in presenting the significant R&D related activities, achievements, facilities of different Schools of the Institute. It is a useful and handy document for the faculty and students of the Institute. It showcases the research strength and outcome of the Institute for not only the academic community of the country but for the outside world as well. The brochure will also attract potential research funding organizations as well as employers for our students. A lot has been achieved and I am sure this is just the beginning as we strive for excellence.
I wish to express my deep sense of gratitude to the faculty members and Heads of the Schools for their co-operation and my sincere thanks to Dr. S. N. Panigrahi, School of Mechanical Sciences, for making it happen.
