Research & Development
Academic excellence thrives when it is applicable to daily life and deeply rooted in a fundamental understanding. Research plays a vital role in extending the practicality of knowledge. At NCCS, we have been actively engaged in the academic industry for two decades, and with our recent association with the University Grants Commission, we are driven by an internal desire to enhance the quality of our programs and activities. As a result, the Research Management Committee (RMC) has identified key objectives to upgrade and strengthen our research endeavors.
Objectives of the Research Management Committee:
- Foster a culture of strong collaboration between students and faculty, with a focus on research-related activities.
- Encourage students to explore their cognitive skills by moving beyond traditional teaching methods and adopting a scholar-based approach.
- Motivate teaching faculty to conduct research, which will provide a solid foundation for self-assessment and continual growth.
- Assist students and faculty in publishing articles in both national and international journals.
- Publish an annual journal showcasing the outcomes of research conducted by faculty and students.
- Organize seminars, conferences, and workshops on research methodology for students and faculty members.
We understand that the success of any plan lies in its outcomes. Mere aspirations are mere raw resources without the realization of their potential. With determination as our driving force, we are inching closer to success in the academic industry.
Our annual plan for the upcoming year is as follows:
- Each faculty member, belonging to the management, science, and humanities departments, will conduct at least one research or mini-research project funded by the organization, focusing on their respective academic excellence.
- Encourage student involvement in research activities by providing opportunities for their participation in ongoing research projects.
- Offer partial or full funding to students for their research endeavors when genuine and feasible proposals are presented to the RMC. We aim to inspire them to think outside the box.
- Conduct a minimum of two workshops annually to promote student participation in research-related activities, with rewards for the best performers.
- Publish a journal at the end of each academic year, featuring articles and research conducted by both faculty and students.
By implementing these strategies, we aim to foster a research-centric environment that encourages continuous growth and promotes excellence in academia.
