Academic Research -> About R & D Center

PET Research Foundation aims at addressing some of the most daunting scientific and technological challenges of social, industrial and national relevance. It also aims to foster the academy-industry interactions, spawn innovative, critical thinking and facilitate value addition for faculty and student fraternity. The main objective is to create an accommodative research ecosystem, which enables faculty members, research scholars and students to undertake such research initiatives. Research in simple terms refers to search for knowledge. It is a scientific and systematic search for information on a particular topic or issue. It is also known as the art of scientific investigation. Thus, research is an original addition to the available knowledge, which contributes to its further advancement.
