About Research and Development


Research and Development is one of the major wings of an institution. Students and professors should have a platform to innovate, explore and develop new ideas. Tagore Engineering College is integrated with Research and Development wing, constantly encourages students and professors to innovate and develop in various fields. Under the leadership of Dr. Koteeswaran Rao, Research and Development has innovated and published many articles and papers. The department constantly focuses and guides students to publish articles in major journals and conferences. This greatly helps them during their projects and even for future endeavors.

Research and Development helps in getting funding from various Government Institutions and Industries which encourages the students to think and deliver more. The department has successfully completed many innovative projects and has built great renown. Many well-known organizations such as DRDO, AICTE, Aeronautical Research and Development Board, University Grant Commission (UGC), Tamil Nadu State Council for Science and Technology, Naval Research Board, etc., have recognized the work done at Tagore Engineering College and awarded project funding for our works.
