Center of Excellence in Solar Energy
With the challenging situation of global climate change and need of carbon credit control Poornima University has taken an initiative by setting up 100 KWp grid connected roof top solar PV energy system at the academic block of University. The installation of Solar Power Plant was supported by MNRE with 30 % funding from MNRE. This system will be a feather in the wings of university with an enthusiasm to promote green energy and clean energy. It is also an inspiration as well as resource for the students for conducting study, research, development and applications of solar energy.
As per the advice of the Chairperson, PU has established center of excellence in solar energy with a focus of a concrete, feasible and detailed research and capacity building in solar energy.Read More….
Center of Excellence in Water Engineering
Water conservation includes all the policies, strategies and activities to sustainably manage the natural resource of fresh water, to protect the hydrosphere, and to meet the current and future human demand. Population, household size, and growth and affluence all affect how much water is used. Factors such as climate change have increased pressures on natural water resources especially in manufacturing and agricultural irrigation.
Water is becoming more and more scare with time both in the rural areas as well as the urban areas. This is largely because of bad management and wrong exploitation of water resources. Drinking water is a problem even in urban areas and so is the case in rural areas including water for irrigation. India has enough rains. Most of that water flows down into the sea taking with it the fertile top soil. It does not percolate down and as a result the ground water is also depleting fast, the water table going down and down almost everywhere. There are technologies available, both in the modern sector as well as in the traditional sector for better water management.Read More….
Center of Excellence in Machine Learning
The Poornima University has started the Center of Excellence- Machine Learning Applications for Society in the School of Computer Science & Engineering in collaboration with Bannett University, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The collaboration has been done in between both the universities to share the research accomplishments in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science and Machine Learning. Initially in 2018 the collaboration was done with a MoU where Bannett University was the Mentor Institute where as Poornima University was the Nodal Center. Now the University is intended to establish itself as Mentor Institute at Poornima University in the future expansions and want to excel its research dimensions in the field of Machine Learning. Under the Center of Excellence (CoE), the School of Computer Science & Engineering is committed to arrange Special lectures, workshops and seminars by the people from industry academic and research verticals.Read More….
