They enrich the professional experience and knowledge of faculty members and thus make them better educators. Research and consultancy projects provide a first-hand knowledge of the current problems of industry and the emerging area which is very helpful in tuning the curriculum the national needs. The faculty members get an opportunity to apply their ideas for finding out the solutions to the problems in emerging areas. Furthermore, the consultancy work also provides incentives for their contribution to all categories of staff.

It is understood that the testing equipment will be used only by the consultant(s) and not by the client.
