         Research and Development cell is an integral part of the academic activities of our institution. This cell is one of the wings of the Institute which facilitates, channelizes all the academic, sponsored, collaborative research projects and consultancy works in the Institute. A.V.C. College of Engineering aspires to transform the lives of young budding engineers through their innovative ideas to contribute for research at academic level by presenting / publishing papers in the conferences and journals as well. Students Innovative Projects are presented in the various Project Competitions. Our institution is closely working with core industries to train the students in this direction.
     Vision
         To promote research activities among students and faculty as well as to provide a robust platform for sharing and implementing innovative and creative ideas to facilitate exchange of information and interaction among the various research institutes and industries to develop skilled manpower in various engineering fields.
     Mission
         • Provide an inclusive environment for the promotion of research and development activities.
    • The staff and students are expected to develop innovative projects, prepare the research proposals and apply for funding agencies.

Objectives:

    • To Promote Research and Research Projects including Multidisciplinary, Research Papers Publication/Presentation in referrred journals.
    • To establish links with different industries, R&D organizations, which provide funding for research activities
    • To collaborate with institutions of higher learning in India for Joint research projects
    • To work towards the establishment of the Institution as an R&D centre.
    • To develop modules for staff development and to support to do Ph.D.

Activities:
