_RESEARCH AND ITS SIGNIFICANCE

_For any country to grow economically and develop opportunities, the field of research forms a very important aspect. Apparently, this is also responsible for building up a strong infrastructure thereby improving the living conditions of the society and builds an eco-system of growth and progressive thoughts. However, the key factor for this to be successful is the involvement of students in the research field. 



_According to recent survey, there has been a significant dip in the number of students resorting to research projects or taking up Ph.D programs. Apparently, the students cite many factors for that- Time required for completing the thesis, the lack of proper project guides, the lack of access to study material and other resources required for research, insufficient stipend, not enough motivation from the educational institutions or the corporates, no guidance on the viability of the research.



_However, academic experts say that with the need to develop the indigenous mechanism, the government along with the noted educational institutions are now coming up with new initiatives to encourage students. Firstly, focus is happening on bringing in good quality faculty and experienced project guides. Also, awareness is being created on the various fields that can be explored for research and highlighting the benefits and advantages of pursuing study in those fields.



_The weightage in terms of career is quite high for research scholars and the qualification has always been useful in getting jobs related to teaching, executive and other technical roles. Those who are good in the subject are also given sops by the government to start up their own projects and set up establishments. While the options are many, the first step for this is to spread the word in the student community and give an insight into the various aspects of research.

_Recently our University has been awarded with “EduIcons - 2016 – Research Campus of the Year” by the Times of India.
