State of the Art Facilities
“A Scientist in his Laboratory is not a mere Technician, he is also a child confronting natural phenomenon that impress him as though they are fairy tales”- Marie Curie
Madam Curie’s, this quotation accentuates the significance of a Laboratory in any Technical Education. At the core of learning is- assimilating knowledge through visually, acoustically and kinesthetically. A lab not only stimulates the senses of a learner but also gives him a free hand to manifest his creativity and imaginations. An ideal lab sets the right cord of learning and provides a conducive and favorable environment for learners to be motivated, stimulated towards absorbing knowledge and implementing it constructively through bearing a scientific attitude.
Innovation in both fundamental as well as signature areas is the hallmark of the spirit of GD Goenka University’s research policy. With a team of young and dynamic professionals as faculty, School of Agricultural Sciences has initiated research studies under four separate groups with distinct demarcation of area of interest as computer science and engineering, bio-sciences and nanotechnology, product design and development, and system performance and reliability studies. However, being distinctly defined does not stop these research groups to work cohesively in the spirit of inter-disciplinary approach and find common goals in research work undertaken.
