Research & Development Cell

About R&D Cell

Since its inception , Annamacharya Institute of Technology and Sciences (AITS) Rajampet has been striving to develop itself into an institution of excellence in education and research in consonance with the contemporary and future needs of the society through meaningful education, research and leadership in technological innovation for the industrial growth of the country. With the path-breaking innovations in both its curriculum and research, the institute is rapidly gaining a good reputation among the institutions in Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. The research philosophy has progressed from inter-department collaboration, to inter –institutional partnerships at national and international levels. The scope and scale of research has substantially evolved from the era of student project dissertations at UG and PG level,Ph.D. theses of research scholars and to funded projects.

In addition to offering formal undergraduate and post-graduate programs in engineering, management and computer applications, the institute actively encourages its faculty to undertake sponsored and consultancy research projects in order to strengthen the research profile of the institute. AITS provide an excellent environment for research and development activities. These projects are very important for maintaining external and global linkages and are also a source of revenue to the institute. These are coordinated through the coordinator, research and development. An account is maintained with the accounts section of the institute for each project. Various aspects of project management, i.e., initiation of proposal, opening of an account with the office, appointment of project staff, purchases and hiring, travel, submission of report etc. are routed through the research and development cell. The procurement for R&D projects is processed by the purchase committee in accordance with the purchase rules of the institute.

Faculty members of one department are always encouraged to collaborate with the faculty members of other departments of AITS and other researchers of various institutions for carrying out research in the area of their expertise and other inter disciplinary areas globally.

Research and development Cell is headed by the coordinator, Research and development and setup to provide specialized administrative and managerial support for the operation of sponsored research, consultancy and other related activities of the institute. The R & D Cell facilitates interaction with experts and eminent personalities from external agencies like IITs, NITs, ISRO and other reputed universities at national level. The R & D Cell acts as a liaison between the institute and funding agency to undertake sponsored projects.
