Dean's Message

Dr. Divakar

Dr. Divakar

Research and Innovations in REVA University is regarded as one of the most important activities besides teaching and learning.

The university with dedicated & qualified faculty, dynamic research scholars, moderate research facilities, well drafted research quality assurance guidelines, and supportive management provides an excellent ambience to pursue research in various disciplines ranging from Engineering, applied sciences, commerce & Management, Arts & Humanities, social Sciences, Performing Arts, Legal Studies and multidisciplinary studies. Research circles, mentored by senior faculty members are active in all the schools and are primarily responsible for cultivating interdisciplinary research cultures in students and faculty.

Faculty members are successful in procuring grants from various government and industrial organizations with the matching grants from the university. Societal issues are the primary focus for students and faculty members to carryout explorative research. The well structured regulations in line with UGC regulations and experts in relevant disciplines provide an enriching experience for research scholars. The rigorous course works followed by comprehensive progress review meetings make the research program at REVA truly competitive. The university with its modest beginning has a grand vision to be recognized as a university committed for applied research towards societal issues. We invite dedicated, passionate and enthusiastic researchers to be a part of this grand vision.

R&I Innovation Club

Research and Innovation club is started to identify and nurture young talents to take up interdisciplinary projects. Students across schools are encouraged to work on projects of interdisciplinary nature under the guidance of faculty mentors. Promotion of Scientific temperament and multidisciplinary research among students is the main agenda of Research & Innovation club. Motivated students mentored by faculty across all disciplines come together on a common platform with a mission to take up tasks of common interests. Students participate in competitions like Hackathon, Android development, IOT applications, SAE-competitions and have won accolades in various national championships.
