The Director—Research has recently taken positive steps to inculcate R&D culture and environment at the campus by directing the faculty members to initiate as Guide / Project Leader new research oriented projects particularly for the Final year students of all disciplines. The project work is now being undertaken mostly in the departments or at the industry where students are undergoing industrial training. As per directives, a list of innovative projects based on emerging technologies is prepared six months in advance by the project guides under the overall guidance of Director- Research in each department for assigning these to the final year students. Based on the new guidelines formulated by the committee, it is now mandatory to produce at least five publications by each department in a year out of these innovative projects work and as a result of this, positive and encouraging outcome is coming up.
Under its R&D programs, SSIET has now undertaken the much delayed task of obtaining Accreditation Certificate from National Board of Accreditation (NBA) New Delhi initially for its four departments. Under the inspiring leadership of Chairman and Principal of the institute, and over all supervision/ guidance of Director- Research, all the faculties and Allied Services are working round the clock to accomplish the necessary tasks and prepare the much needed document in the form of ' Self Assessment Report'. The work is in progress.
