Sponsor Research


The Institute encourages investigation of basic and applied areas of science and technology in the form of sponsored projects. Research grants for such projects are given by Government agencies and industries (both national and international). These projects are usually of 2-5 years duration with periodic appraisals, while research objectives and goals may be refined along the way.
