Academic research & industry:

  • Academics relate to the work done in the school, colleges & universities especially work which involves studying & reasoning rather than practical or technical skills.
  • Research is work that involves setting up experiments and/or systematically studying something and trying discover new facts about it.
  • Industry is the work & processes involved in collecting raw materials & making them into products in factories, or consultancy & services.


The overall summary of talk by chief guest is:

  • Undergraduate research does a world of good to the students, the faculty and to the institution.
  • Proactive role by institute management is crucial for this important activity.
  • Research areas and topics should be carefully chosen taking into account interest of all stack holders.
  • Quality of research work and papers must be strictly monitored.
  • Institute must setup a research advisory committee to ensure these goals.

Active professional membership unit-like IEEE, will act as a fertile ground as well as serve as a catalyst for the research ambience on campus.
