Message from the Director
I am delighted to see the preparations for publication of the R&D Profile of the Institute, highlighting the research strength and contributions made including a brief on sponsored projects being run. It is an important document for not only the Institute but also for the industry and research laboratories to learn about the research capabilities of the Institute so that they can avail the research services of the Institute, effectively. It would also serve the prospective employers to know about the training our students have undergone. Furthermore, it would help disseminating the R&D related achievements of the Institute among the academia of the country and abroad for appraisal and it may lead to possible collaborative research. I am sure, it would give the potential future faculty to understand about the R&D stature of the Institute on its journey to make a mark in the global map as a unique Institution of academic excellence. This would also serve to highlight the achievements of the contributing faculty members and may also provide encouragement to promote cutting edge, innovative and socially relevant research.
I congratulate the Dean (R&D) and his team for bringing out this document and look forward to have its updated versions in future.
Prof. R. V. Raja Kumar
