Research Culture at JECRC University
Research Innovation and Extension
JECRC University (JU) is innovation led Research University with a strong focus on research at all levels of academics including undergraduate and postgraduate programs. At JECRC University, we believe that a part form knowledge dissemination, knowledge creation is our prime responsibility. JU has created enabling environment for faculty members, research scholars and students to undertake research within and beyond curriculum with complete focus on socially and economically relevant research. The main features of Research Innovation and Extension at JU are given as under:
1. Research Enriched Curriculum
In all undergraduate programs there is provision for project based learning. In the final semester an undergraduate student in other than Engineering and Computer Application, may choose either course work, industry internship/ project or research leading to submission of dissertation/ thesis. In all postgraduate program except Engineering, there is a mandatory requirement of either industry internship/ project or research leading to dissertation/ thesis in final semester. In M.Tech there is a mandatory requirement of research leading to dissertation/ thesis. Each Academic Department has a Research Lab to facilitate the students to carry out research and learned creation of new knowledge. Undergraduate student are encouraged to publish review/ research papers and postgraduate students are encourage to at least one research/ review paper every year in top rated peer reviewed journals.
2. Research Promotion Policy
JECRC University has well defined and articulated policy for research and innovation promotion. Cash incentive of Rupees 5000/- is provided for each research/ review paper published in SCOPUS/ WEB OF SCIENCE Indexed Journals. University bears the cost of patents & copyrights and signs agreement with inventor(s) for sharing the royalty if the patent achieve the level of technology transfer. Cash incentives are given to the faculty members for obtaining research grants for the University from Government and Non-Government agencies. Annual cash awards are provided to the best faculty researchers and one student researcher.
3. Research Task Force
A special Research Task Force (RTF) of faculty members has been created who with the help of students undertake applied and socially relevant research in cutting edge technologies and solutions of problems of underprivileged sections of the society on priority basis. Member of the RTF also give more focus on filing patents/ copyrights and obtaining research grants from Government and Non-Government agencies.
4. Extension Activities
It is important to connect with society and community to deliver the benefits of knowledge creation in an effective manner. There are students groups under Students Chapter of Profession Bodies, Clubs, and Societies etc. who interact with the people outside University to understand their problems and provide them either free or cost effective solutions. JU implements Central/ State Government schemes for social welfare including NSS, Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat, Legal Aid Clinics etc. very effectively.
