Dean's (R&D) Message



Thakur College of Engineering and Technology (TCET) has been continuously putting efforts to inculcate the R&D culture at par with internationally reputed institutes, in coherence with the scope of the departments. TCET also encourages students for interdisciplinary research. This has helped us to ignite the young minds which much needed for Self Reliant Nation. R&D activities are encouraged at both departmental and institute level. Our laboratories are equipped with required infrastructure and other facilities in all departments. These Laboratories are established with inputs from AICTE, industry and our alumni. Some of the laboratories are specifically developed to implement the vision of research by support of Government funding agencies.

Consistently our students and faculty participate in conferences, seminars, workshops, industry interactions, Intellectual property awareness seminars etc. It is fruitful for them to update about the recent research developments and industry applications. We refer national vision documents such as National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, Technology Vision 2035, AICTE model curriculum etc, for updating our R&D policy, activates and academic curriculum. As a result, college has implemented research based learning (RBL) in the Undergraduate curriculum. This gives a formal platform to students to implement their research ideas under the able guidance of faculty for better prospect. To support research and project development, we have well established central library with e-learning resources. In addition, R&D cell has electronic components which are provided students for their projects. Faculty members have been accomplishing research funding from University of Mumbai, AICTE, DST and other funding agencies.

Outcome of this research activity is turned into quality paper publications. Our faculty members and students have filed 36 patents out of that 12 patents granted by Indian, Australian and German Patent office. Students regularly participate in smart India hackathon, Avishkar and other project competitions and achieve the awards, appreciations and prizes. The institute is recognized as research centre by university of Mumbai for Ph.D. (Technology) in Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Engineering. Institute provides the Incubation center facility for alumni where they can establish their start-up company.

At TCET, we have taken strong steps to achieve publications, patents, hosting conferences and seminars, funding received for incubation center and industrial consultancy. TCET has realised the importance of collaborative research. Hence, multidisciplinary projects are encouraged in association with industry. The facilities and resources offered by the institute will surely enhance the students' talent and this will eventually contribute their ideas for the further growth of society and nation. We, TCET welcome all the aspiring students to join this exciting world of technology learning and wishes all the best for a bright future, balanced and satisfied life!
