Our Chancellor Amma emphasizes the importance of research activities at the three Schools of Engineering. Research projects aim to benefit humanity in some way, and the research is usually undertaken in collaboration with industry, academia and government. The projects enjoy support from international and national partners including the European Commission, DST, TIFAC, ISRO, DRDO, Ministry of Information Technology.
Faculty at Amrita are encouraged to publish papers and present their work at conferences around the country and the world. The Amrita faculty also regularly organize national- and international-level conferences in the fields of their specialization. At Amrita, students, even at the undergraduate level, are given an opportunity to participate in these activities.
Research activity at Amrita is part and parcel of all departments at the three Schools of Engineering. In addition, dedicated R&D centers have also been established in order to promote research activities in specific areas.
