Message from Dean desk

For more than two decades, Vel Tech has been carrying out academic and multidisciplinary research activities in diversified technology domains such as Additive Manufacturing, Aerodynamics and Propulsion, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Bio Nano Technology and Bio-Sensors, Composite Materials and Metallurgy, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Finite Element Analysis, Image Processing and Deep Learning, Nano-materials and Coatings and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for diverse applications. Vel Tech promotes state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research among students and faculty members. Vel Tech was received grants worth of more than 5000 lakhs from diverse funding agencies such as DST,DBT, DRDO, ISRO, CSIR, CPRI, BRNS, IEI, MSME, TNSCST and other International Collaborations (Indo – Taiwan, Indo – France, Indo – Canada and Indo – Korea). The National Education Policy (NEP) focuses on developing a robust ecosystem of multidisciplinary research in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs). The thrust areas such as biotechnology, machine learning, artificial intelligence, energy, and 3D printing need to be focused on enhancing the R&D of our country. The societal challenges such as providing clean drinking water, sanitation, improving air quality, and infrastructure monitoring are to be addressed effectively with high-quality interdisciplinary research. The overarching aim of NEP is to enable a culture of research to pervade through HEIs across our nation. As per UN agenda, contribution towards SDGs through research, teaching, and practical activities is the need of the hour. Thus, the institute addresses the need for NEP and SDGs by investing in the development of quality resources, manpower, technologies, and anchoring multi-stakeholder practices.
