Research is an integral part of the activities of M.E.S’s Nowrosjee Wadia College. The Research cell is one of the wings of the Institute which facilitates, channelizes, records, and regulates all the academic, sponsored, collaborative research projects and consultancy works in the Institute. In a world increasingly propelled by technology, academic research forms the mainspring of a nation’s economic growth. The key goal of the Institute is to provide a creative atmosphere in which higher studies and research thrive amongst the faculty and students.
We help the Research students and their guiding teachers to interact with other Research Scientists and Research Institutes for collaborative work, to liaise between industries and corporate for consultancy work and to place the students in industries and Research Centers for short term training in advanced instrumentation.
Nowrosjee Wadia College helps you in exploring potential career paths by providing Research Opportunities. Research provides an introduction to how work is conducted in your discipline, leads to a deeper understanding of current practices of your chosen discipline and teaches creative problem solving and communication skills. Nowrosjee Wadia College provides the opportunity to apply concepts learned in course work to real time situations. Research offers you the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor and gives you the chance to present your findings at local, regional and national conferences.
Besides the regular teaching assignments our teaching staff is also working on various research activities both at the University level as well as National and International levels.
