Institute of Technology

Research Project

We understand the basic duty of university to be a knowledge creator. We also know that the knowledge so created should be shared and transferred among the peers and then percolated to the students. As research thrives on intellectual ability which derives lessons from past results and is continuous in nature, university though neophyte has gained momentum through multiple efforts. Research needs to be connected with the past, present and future and should be aligned with teaching and industry needs. Institute of Technology, Nirma University in this endeavor provides fertile and conducive platform to the faculty members. Already established researchers in the university with their research wisdom are constantly getting augmented by the new faculty members who brings with them newly acquired research insights and area in terms of Ph. D. and its related work.
