For students

Although research is not compulsory for U.G & P.G students, our college introduced basic research for the benefit of students.

Basic Research for Students

Research takes many forms depending upon the ‘major’ chosen. There are different approaches to research. Some of these include:

  • Library searches/Attending workshops/ Awareness programmes
