Research Facility at VGU

In a span of existence of 8 years, research cell at VGU is working with a focus to involve in research activities relevant to local needs of the state and domains more relevant for a developing country like India.

The research policy at VGU is regularly discussed in the meetings of Research Board and academic council to match up to the requirements of the newer domains of study. The board of management with its vision to develop strong research environment has been regularly sanctioning grants and additions to the research policy of the university as per requirements of new departments and domains of education added on campus every year.

The research policy at VGU has been updated 3 times in the span of last 8 years with a mandate of updating the policy every 3 years looking at the fast-paced growth and demand of an expanding university.

The research policy handbook is updated and shared among faculties, students, and researchers by the research cell. The policy document is available as a reference document for all on the VGU website as part of Research cell and is also circulated to deans and department heads through hardcopy for referencing.

At VGU, around 5000 sq. m. of building space is dedicated to research infrastructure in form of workshops, instrumentation labs and studios. Since inception of the university, the lab equipment, plant and machinery has been added regularly.

The instrumentation labs and workshops at VGU consist of hand tools, power tools and heavy machinery to support studies and experimentation works related to civil, mechanical, robotics and electrical engineering. The campus hosts 6 chemistry labs, 2 material research labs, botany, and zoology labs to support works related to basic, applied and life sciences. New technologies and instruments are added every year in the labs as per academic and research cell requirements, processed through the board of studies meeting to the academic committee for approval and implementation.

The research database of SCOPUS and WOS and accessibility of E-Journals equips the researchers to undertake detailed theoretical and background studies, to prepare strong research proposals.

A basic green house facility of 800 sq. ft. was established on campus with the establishment of agriculture department in 2016. Further this facility has been upgraded in 2020 to a 2 acre of fully automated poly house, housing advanced equipment of hydroponics, fogponics and aeroponics in agriculture.

Learning through seeing is promoted with display of domain specific specimen displayed at the building material, human anatomy and the pharmacy museums. The museums are updated regularly with support from industry partners and as per requirements of the regulatory professional councils like the COA and PCI.

Researchers, fellows, and students of all domains are expected to publish their research works through print, digital and social media. On campus audio, video studios with basic recording and editing instruments and software like Adobe editor, Filmora, video suite, studio 23, etc. support creation of required audio and video presentations.
