SRM University AP‘Upscaling and upskilling are substantial in product engineering. We should further be focused on linking our curriculum to India’s glorious heritage,’ said Dr. Saraswat at SRM University AP.

‘Our ancestors made tremendous progress in science, medicine, astrology, astronomy and other branches that the outside world knows very little about. It is now time to remember them and learn from them,’ said Dr. Saraswat.

India has an ambitious plan to make the country carbon neutral by the year 2070. Thus, encouragement is given on environment-friendly research.

The focus should be on reducing the carbon footprint in nature with proper planning on the use-storage and distribution of hydrogen in nature.

India produces many academicians, scientists and engineers every year, but today India is more about theoretical research. It is now time not only to write papers but also to produce designs that are market relevant.

SRM University AP should take the initiative in this regard to deliver India able designer-engineers.

Dr. V.K. Saraswat inaugurated two centres of excellence that SRM University AP has recently established to promote translational research. SRM Amara Raja Centre for Energy Storage Devices is set up, in collaboration with Amara Raja Batteries Limited- Tirupati, with a commitment to application-oriented research in the renewable energy and e-mobility.

SRM University APCentre for pioneering studies in Gold & Silver will be working on flagship project with Titan Company Ltd (TANISHQ) to develop novel gold alloy for contemporary jewellery design.

The centre also aims to work on projects in collaboration with Waman Hari Pethe & Sons, Mumbai and other jewellery manufacturers across India to produce high strength 22 Karat gold and develop tarnish free silver alloys.

President of SRM University AP Dr. P. Sathyanarayanan shared his vision to make SRM University AP as a new age world-class research university.

Professor D.Narayana Rao, Pro-Vice Chancellor of SRM University AP presented an overall roadmap of SRM AP’s progress in research so far and the way forward.

The nascent university proudly houses 4500 students and 180 faculty with a few foreign nationals among them.

Several DST- Inspire, DBT-Wellcome, Ramalingaswami and Ramanujan faculty are crowning the university with their exceptional research and teaching abilities.

Stanford Research recognises the faculty of SRM University AP among the world’s top 2% researchers. The university has published 678 papers in Scopus Indexed journals.

The faculty are working on 38 projects with an outlay of 19.17 crores funded by the Government of India and Industry Giants. The committee agreed that fundamental areas cannot be compromised while working on the challenges in the education sector.

Good students and faculty are to be attracted in order to pursue qualitative research. High end teaching and research facilities are essential for higher studies organisations.

In initial years, collaborations can be beneficial for networking and promoting qualitative deliverables. The committee advocated for design schools to promote brainstorming for qualitative research.

Every institution should have 4 fundamental pillars of education-teaching, research, industry-academia relation, societal benefits. Teaching and research should go hand-in-hand.

The weakness of the institutions todays is undergrads are not given enough exposure to the practical knowledge of equipment. Critical thinking among students along with project-based teaching are to be encouraged from the initial years of the undergraduate studies.
