Centre for Research, Development & Consultancy (CRDC)

Overview

Muthayammal College of Engineering (MCE) has focused on research ever since its inception in 2011. The Institution has been taking initiatives for differentiating itself by encouraging Research and Innovation. The Centre for Research, Development & Consultancy (CRDC) was established to strengthen the research activities, enhance industry interaction and to foster industry and society relevant research. The Centre provides support and guidance to enable the Faculty, Research Scholars and Students take up research and innovative development activities relevant to the industry as well as society.

Objectives
  • To Establish and Nurture Research Culture in the Campus.
  • To Engage in Collaborative Research with R& D Centres in Reputed Organizations.
  • To Develop and Establish more Research Centres.
  • To Encourage more Sponsored Research to Enhance the Research Facilities.
  • To Pursue Innovative and Emerging Research.

The prime focus of the College is in Academic Research and Sponsored Research. The faculty members engaged in research are provided the seed money by the Institution to start the research and carry out rigorous research activities. The research activities of the Faculty Members, Full Time/Part Time Research Scholars and Students have shown encouraging results in good number of Research Publications, Products and Patents.
