Research & Advanced Studies at JECRC University:
JECRC Foundation is leading in education and research and pioneer in proving its excellence not only in Engineering Education but also blending the research and innovation based education to nurture the young talent. Our prime motto is generate practice based learning which starts from class room to laboratory, in this process our young faculty is working on DST Fast Track Proposals and five faculties are identify as Women Scientist A, one of the most prestigious fellowship of country.
Women Scientist A Scheme:
JECRC University faculties are not only involved in teaching but also awarded with the country’s most prestigious fellowship Women Scientist A. In this project faculty cum women scientist A are working on high technologies for Isolation of pure bioactives from Arid Zone plants with potentials as anti-cancerous, antimicrobial and anti-diabetic agents. These novel bioactives will lead to therapeutic targets for future generation. The project scheme is of 2.5 million (Rs. 25 lakhs) funded from Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, India to give scientist explore the innovative ideas into drug development. Provisional patents are also submitted for isolation of novel antibiotic for treatment of Nosocomial infections.
Cognitive Science Initiative:
JECRC has attained another milestone with a grant of Rs. 40 lacs by DST to establish India's first "Aura Research Centre". It is a result of sustained and extensive resources devoted to Research & Development at JECRC that the Foundation currently holds projects worth Rs. 500 lacs approved by DST, UGC & AICTE.
DST Center with Potentials for Excellence in Biotechnology
JECRC MGIAS is being considered as the Centre with Potential for Excellence by Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of Rajasthan because of its interdisciplinary research activities. It is for the first time that such recognition is being driven by State DST to any education Institute.
A successful completion of three year research project on Scientific Validation and Authentication of Ethno-medicinal Treasure of Rajasthan and in situ conservation of Endangered flora (2008-2012) has been approved by the expert committee of DST, Government of Rajasthan. The Centre prepared Ethno-medicinal Herbarium, its scientific validation, a live documentary, marker generation fingerprints and studying various bio-efficacious aspects including in situ conservation of tribal treasure of Rajasthan under the auspices of DST the group has 25 research articles and ten International books as an outcome of the work.
Excellence in Engineering Education is prime motto at JECRC Foundation, received more than 200 lakhs Government funded projects whether major, minor or student projects. JECRC University possess 70 percent faculty doctorate in their respective field. Faculty is teaching in class room in one pace and making innovative projects, leading instruments via new moderate clubs. Role of Research Oriented Faculty is nurturing young talent with real time experiments so that student will come forward with real innovative ideas.
Further, JECRC University hosted the prestigious Group Monitoring Workshop of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India for their SEED Program. Two days Group Monitoring Meeting is organized on 12th and 13th November, 2013 where ten experts having potentials expertise in their field.
A two day “Subject expert committee meeting and group monitoring workshop” for Physical and Mathematical Sciences was held on 2nd and 3rd December, 2013. This Prestigious Meeting was held at JU by DST, Govt. Of India, This is one of the rare occasions where a Private University is allowed to host such Meetings. 45 Principal Investigators and 15 Subject Experts from all over the Country have participate and projects funding of 12 Crore were presented and deliberated.
Yet another feather in the cap of JU. Subject Expert Committee Meeting of Women Scientist A (WOS- A) Chemical Sciences. The meeting was held fourth time in the campus. A remarkable brain storming sessions from Morning 9 am to 6 pm where more than 100 women participants from various states of country including Karnataka, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Orissa, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh and many more on 12-13th July, 2014. These participants presented their presentations on different research frontiers and selected researchers will get a grant of Rs. 25 lakhs. More than 25 crore projects were discussed in three days by nine experts committee members who are experts in Life Sciences from all over the country. for eg. Chairperson Dr. Neeta Singh, AIIMS, New Delhi, Dr. R. Ramanibai, Madras University, Chennai.
This is 5th such GMW in Life Sciences held at JECRC University sponsored by DST, Govt. of India. This fellowship is important because it promotes women in science and technology. A three day group monitoring workshop of Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, New Delhi was held at JECRC University from 23rd to 25th February, 2015 whereby various research projects were presented.
JU WTP (JECRC University Women Technology Park):
Project sponsor: Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi
Rural Woman Technology Park (RWTP) promotes development and adaptation of appropriate local technologies, transfer of proven technologies and demonstration of live technology models to benefit women in general and rural women in particular. RWTP act as a resource center where all necessary support is made available to women for improving their socio-economic quality of life. JECRC Foundation has chosen local technologies for research and development including Sanganeri prints, Gem cutting, Jewellery design, Handmade paper using cloth wastes, paper-mache, Medicinal and Aromatic plants, cultivation of vegetables and spices, health and nutrition for women, etc. for this Project. Women from the State of Rajasthan are given extensive training and support for starting their own business/ ventures. RWTP is also providing assistance for identifying suitable products/ services for the new ventures, preparing detailed project reports, identifying sources of raw materials, equipment, finance and markets, guidance for various Government clearances etc. from a single platform so that their business becomes cost effective.
The Project envisages training/ support to women population from 3000 households covering about 6000 to 7000 women beneficiaries over a period of 3 years. RWTP shall be a great opportunity for the women of Rajasthan to establish themselves as an independent identity earning livelihood for their families and raising their head high with self esteem.
