Research @ NIEIT

At NIEIT, we truly believe in pushing the boundaries of knowledge and possibilities. Accordingly, from research allied faculty members to undergraduate students, all members of NIEIT family are engaged in creating new knowledge. More than 50% of our undergraduates and nearly 90% of our postgraduates enrich their educational experience by actively engaging themselves with faculty-led research initiatives. Also, we have adopted a trans-disciplinary research approach, that brings together research brains from diverse fields, as we truly believe in stitching together fundamental discoveries with practical applications. As a consequence, research flourishes in our various science and engineering departments, as well as different centres of excellence, which strive to explore new intellectual frontiers and attack important societal and industrial problems. This, in-turn has enabled numerous knowledge enhancing, socially-relevant, industry specific and deployable research outcomes.

Objectives of Research @ NIEIT

Research at NIEIT aims at addressing some of the most daunting scientific and technological challenges of social, industrial and national relevance. It also aims to foster the academy-industry interactions, spawn innovative and critical thinking, facilitate value addition for faculty and student fraternity of NIEIT and most importantly, improve the research perception of the institute, as a whole.

Specific objectives

  • To create an accommodative research ecosystem, which enables faculty members and/or research scholars and/or students, to undertake such research initiatives, which serve to advance knowledge and are socially need based.
  • Forge trans-disciplinary collaborations and partnerships at national and international level.
  • Ensure publications in high-quality and appropriately-indexed scientific journals.
  • Safeguard the intellectual property of NIEIT and its faculty and/or students.
