Academic Research Facilities

 The University has a strong research culture. About 90% of the faculty have Ph.D. Degrees and are all actively involved in research supervision with independent & collaborative research projects funded by various agencies. More than 650 research scholars are working on the campus pursuing their Ph.D. research and this number is expected to cross 1000 in the next two years.

The citation index of 5.2 and h-index 28 (for the last 10 years ) of our faculty publications are well above the best universities in the country. The level of extra mural funding is overwhelming not only from government agencies but also from industries. Over two hundred and five research projects are being carried out and this number is progressively increasing. The funding has more than doubled during the last three years. Six departments have FIST-funding from the D.S.T., Ministry of Science & Technology.
