Promotion of Research:
For promotion of research on the campus the institution has taken due care to establish and monitor research activities on the campus which is headed by a senior faculty as Research & Development Advisory Cell Co-ordinator so the sole interest is to promote and facilitate any of the research activity on the campus by students and faculties. The aims and objectives of the research committee are to identify research talent and induce this activity in him in addition to teaching and learning on the campus. The Cell generally meets once in a year and advises potential faculty member to augment funds to carry out research projects emerging from local and surrounding area which not only helps them to upgrade and update their knowledge but also provides guidelines to the local administration in addressing the concerns of the problems. The committee takes decision and communicates to the Principal for its follow up action to implement its important decision by the administration. It has taken decision to submit minor/major research projects by faculty and get recognition of potential research guide and get recognized eligible and competent departments as Research Centre. Composition of the Research Development Advisory Cell (RDAC) and its members are as follows-
1) Prof. Dr. P.B. Khanale - Co-ordinator
2) Prof. Dr. M.N. Sondge - Member
3) Dr. S.V. Shinde - Member
4) Dr. A.S. Gangane - Member
As the institution is pioneering in research area, it has developed all constituents in the institution to take on any challenges in this area. The institution has got 13 departments recognized as research centres namely 1) Chemistry, 2) Microbiology, 3) Botany, 4) Zoology, 5) Geology 6) Computer Science, 7) Economics, 8) Sociology, 9) Political Science, 10) English, 11) Hindi, 12) Urdu, 13) Commerce and Management, 14) History, 15) Public Administration. To these research centers there are 29 research guides from the institution and 29 research guides from surrounding institutions have been associated with it. These research guides are also recognized to various other universities to guide the M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes on their Universities. Two teacher follow have been working in the department of Botany and Sociology and about 201 students have registered their names as research scholars as full time or part time in these research centres under the guidance of research guides in the institutions. So far 98 research scholars have successfully completed their research work and have been awarded Ph.D. degree by the SRTMU Nanded. We feel, according to our opinion the major achievement during last five years is up-gradation and updation of faculty members of institution on par with their international peers which has resulted in visiting 7 of faculty members of this institution who have been invited by foreign Universities to present their research papers in their Universities.
Research facilities developed on the campus :
The institution has initially developed basic research facilities on the campus by equipping laboratories with the required instruments making Wi-Fi facilities available on the campus. Providing lease-line internet connectivity to all research centres asking potential and qualified teachers to get recognized as Guide from various Universities which facilitates the attraction to the research students as research scholars. We are very proud to say two foreign students have registered their names at research centres under supervision of the faculty of the College e.g. Computer Science and English each. UGC and other funding agencies has also lend its helping hands by graciously sanctioning funds to strengthen research facilities and research centres of the institution which has made strong and healthy research atmosphere on the campus not only for the students of this research centre but also students of other research centre for carrying out estimation and analysis on the instruments available on research centres such as I.R., Rota Evaporator, PCR Thermo-cycler, Bio-Photometer, Bioreactor, Environmental shaker, Cooling Centrifuge, Phase Contrast Microscope etc. which have made institution to play the dominant role to strengthen research ambiance not only in institution but also in surrounding area which reflects in the action of 18 research guides getting associated with research centers.
