About Research and Development Cell

PVKK Institute of Technology, Ananthapuramu has promoted meaningful scientific industrial Research and Development activities with an objectives and functions to pursue and promote Research in Frontier Technologies as well as in the various disciplines of Engineering and Management Studies

For any education, specifically technical education, the basic model of a ‘teaching-only’ Institution is inadequate to ensure quality education. In all disciplines of technical education, knowledge is dynamic with new technologies being introduced very frequently. In this scenario, it is not possible for the teachers to deliver good quality instructions without being tuned to the current developments in the subjects, for which they must constantly update their knowledge.

A well- recognized way to deal with this paradigm is for the teachers to be active researchers in the areas in which they interested. As researchers, they need to understand the past and recent developments in their subject areas.

Research and Development Cell was established at PVKK Institute of Technology to inculcate research and innovative skills among faculty and students. R&D Cell provides a platform for creativity and innovation to flourish young minds in institute. Innovative breakthroughs will happen only because of meticulous efforts of R&D.

PVKKIT R&D Cell is a nominated committee consisting of faculty members from various programmes. This committee overseas the smooth and efficient coordination of research and development activities in the Institute, thus fostering overall growth. The organizational structure consists of Principal, R&D Director and Coordinators for facilitating the routine functioning of the cell.

Institute Research Advisor- a Professor with at least 10 years of research supervision experience.R&D Coordinators- six teaching faculty members from all the departments.
