R & D

Research & Development is the backbone of academics. It simplifies concept building and transforms new ideas into innovations in pursuance of a new era of passion for researches. Each finding gives immense pleasure and multiplies enthusiasm towards achieving the target. Research & Development is also the foundation of any nation’s economic growth.

RCERT has exhibited its commitment toward the research & development in the emerging areas/ cutting-edge technologies/thrust areas of engineering, technology & applied sciences for a long. The reflection of it can be visualized from the number of research projects successfully executed by the faculty & students and also from a large number of research publications appeared in International/ National Journals and Conference proceedings. RCERT always encourages the students and faculty to undertake the research in newly emerging frontier areas of Engineering, Technology and Science including Multi-disciplinary fields. Along with the academic research, RCERT has also contributed in the research & development for rural based projects as a part of its commitment towards rural-India and as a result, RCERT is being selected by MHRD as a participating institution for their dream project Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA).

RCERT is also an approved research Center for Higher Learning and Research (CHLR) of Gondwana University, Gadchiroli in many subject areas of Engineering & Applied Sciences viz. Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics & Applied Mathematics and many students are pursuing the research work at this research center. RCERT has good number of approved research supervisors in various subject areas of Engineering & Applied Sciences who have completed their Ph.D./M.Tech. from reputed institutions like NIT Warangal, VNIT Nagpur, MNIT Bhopal, IIT Bombay, ISM Dhanbad,  etc while in service. The list given below highlights the completed and ongoing research projects of faculty & students along with research summaries.
