Research Committee

The Institute Level Research Committee  (ILRC) of Institute of Technology is constituted to facilitate effective implementation of different activities of research. The committee provides guidance to the departments in taking time to time corrective measures to achieve the targeted goals and outcomes related to the department level Research Plan. The committees make recommendations to the Research Advisory Committee of the Directorate of Research and Innovation (DRI).

Looking to the diversity in areas of research in the Institute, two separate Research Committees, one for Circuit Branches and another for Non-Circuit Branches are constituted.

The Institute Level Research Committees arranges meetings at least once in six months of the calendar year. The Institute Level Committee submits its recommendations, proposals, reports, difficulties being faced during conduction of the research related activities if any, agenda of the meetings, Minutes of the Institute Level Meeting, etc. to the DRI for further action/discussion in the Research Advisory Committee of the DRI.
