Institutional Distinctiveness

Research and Innovation forms a significant part of our envisaged goals. Our aim is to integrate research development with academics and encourage our faculty members and students to take up and continue research in their respective areas of interest. The University is focused on interdisciplinary, collaborative and community based research that in turn will help to generate effective technology driven solutions responding to the needs of local, national and global interests.

Creation of an agriculturally literate society is not only essential but an absolute need of the hour and our team strives to help the students in the learning process. Our Agricultural Education Program aims at raising awareness for food and farming. University has identified agriculture as the core area of research and the focus is on the use of modern technology in agriculture to grow chemical free green organic vegetables and medicinal herbs. The University has a setup of 1600 sq. m. of fully-automatic green house as agriculture research center. The green house is completely automated with internal and external shading provision. It consists of triple shading devices to ensure fully controlled system so that the required environment can be achieved for the overall growth of healthy plants. The structure is tunnel shaped which can withstand air speed up to 110 km/hr. The greenhouse is equipped with different types of hydroponic systems with fully automated fertigation equipment and water filtration plant. It is a matter of pride for the University that this facility embraced with latest technology available internationally, is the first of its kind in the state

The state-of-the-art infrastructure provides exposure to our students, researchers and the local community in advance soilless technology used in organic farming using hydroponics. Our students are getting practical working exposure to the latest farming techniques like Drip irrigation, Mulching, intercropping, Sprinkler system etc.

As a result, we are growing our own produce from fruits to flowers and herbs to medicinal plants in our vast 20 acre campus. This inspires our students to think more deeply about sustainable agriculture, food supply and the role of science in this context. We are helping students and the rural community especially tribal farmers to learn entrepreneurship in order to become true change makers.
