Research Centre

The New Research Centre was applied and inspected on 22 nd December-2018 by Local Inspection Committee, VTU, Belagavi. Research centre for Electronics and communication engineering was sanctioned /Recognised for the academic Year 2019-2020 By VTU, Belagavi.

The main objective of the proposed research centre at ECE Dept., of Our college is to provide research facilities for students, faculties and research scholars under doctoral and masters programs to fulfil their research requirements and to support their innovative ideas.

We are planning to have a Memorandum of Understanding with industries to upgrade the students and staff with the most upcoming technologies in the industry.
The department has two research supervisors recognised by VTU. The research centre is facilitated with 20 computing systems with legal softwares like LABVIEW, Xilinx and MATLAB. The research centre also has seven subscriptions of national and internal journals. We also have access to journals through VTU consortium.

We look forward to have good projects and grants from renowned organisations and boards like AICTE, UGC, VTU, KSCST etc., so that we can develop our college as well as our ambience.
