Research/ Consultancy

KSSEM strongly believes that research activity carried out in an institution is one of the strong indicators of growth of an institution. Hence, KSSEM has given high priority for research and consultancy work in its campus. The faculties involving in research work are encouraged by providing them the required infrastructure, high-end instrumentation set-up in the laboratories and incentives for faculty who publish research papers in refereed journals and reputed conferences and for the faculty who succeed to get research funding. This strategy of encouragement for the faculty to carry out research activities has paid off its dividend in terms of research publications, sanction of funded research and consultancy projects and registration for Ph.D. Programmes by faculty of KSSEM. Indeed the following report is a pride exhibition of progress made in research and consultancy division of KSSEM within a short span of two years since its inception.
