Research at Jain (Deemed-to-be University)

The research centers at Jain (Deemed-to-be University) focus on finding solutions to disruptive interdisciplinary / cross-disciplinary research problems that will have a significant societal and/or economic impact. Through its extensive network of highly skilled research faculty and scientists, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and collaborators, the University is working towards advancing research by funding growth, creating unique research training opportunities, and increasing its competitiveness for externally funded program project and grants.

Promotion of Research

A Research Development Cell (RDC) has been established with the Vice Chancellor as the Chairman and the Pro Vice Chancellors, the Deans of Faculty, Directors of the Research Centers, and eminent experts as members. The RDC oversees the research activities undertaken at the University level. The RDC has created Research Development Units (RDU) in each faculty. The RDUs are headed by the concerned deans and consists of all heads of departments in the faculty, professors, and external experts in the chosen research domain. The RDC also oversees the Ph.D. and M.Phil. programs of the University and coordinates the activities of the research centers. The major and minor research projects that are proposed by the faculty are scrutinized by the concerned RDUs and subsequently, approved by the RDC and forwarded to the concerned sponsoring agencies. In-house projects are reviewed by the RDUs and recommended to the RDC for approval. The University sets aside a portion of its budget for such in-house research projects. The approved project coordinators are required to submit biannual reports to the concerned RDUs. The RDC conducts workshops and seminars on research methods at regular intervals for faculty and research students.

  • Created the position of a Dean for Research to coordinate research activities
Interdisciplinary Research

The University believes in promoting interdisciplinary research programs. It has collaborations with national/international research institutions of excellence for execution of research projects. Most of these are interdisciplinary in nature. The University also has multidisciplinary research projects. Enlisted below are the collaborations of the University. The University has initiated projects on snake venom and biofuels.

Research Facilities

All the constituent units have state-of-the-art research facilities that are used by the students. The researchers are also provided with library facilities and internet access to pursue their research work. Establishing new facilities and upgrading the existing ones is a continuous process.

The engineering wing has well-equipped labs and research centers like Center for Disaster Mitigation have separate cabins for faculty with computers and internet facility, and software packages like SPSS and Microsoft for database analysis. The wing is also equipped with Wi-Fi, online journals, e-books, and international and national journals. Out of mutual interest, research institutes like IISc, RRI, NAL, and CSIR have extended their facility to Jain (Deemed-to-be University).

The postgraduate department laboratories are equipped with the most advanced equipment to suit additional academic and research needs of students pursuing their masters, M.Phil, and Ph.D. degrees. The undergraduate labs are well equipped to carry out minor research projects. The University also has a well-resourced library, internet, computers in every department, and audio-visual facility to pursue research. To help our researcher, we also have the following:

  • Thinklet, an e-journal of research activities
  • Interlibrary loan facility
  • Research retreat
  • Research conclave
  • Permission to visit research centers to make use of available facilities
  • Sophisticated research equipment, and
  • Initiative to establish a nodal research center
