Energy is the key factor for the growth of any country. Per capita energy consumption is the significance of the progress of any nation. With the increasing environmental impacts and continuously diminishing the primary sources, world community is searching the way to shift towards sustainable energy sources. Recently the penetration of photovoltaic systems has increased to generate the electricity. In view of the contribution by future engineers, the department has established solar energy centre in year 2015 to align with the government target to produce 100 GW electricity from solar energy. This lab is equipped with several latest experimental setups like PV Grid Tied System, PV emulator, Energy Audit kit, PV Training system and other solar based applications. In this laboratory, we frequently organize academic activities on present scenario and future trends. Few photographs can be viewed.

(a)  Brief write up on the Lab/Group:

Nanotechnology is recognized as including promising new techniques that overcome the limitations posed by the conventional ones. There is plenty of nanotechnology applications currently in use today, such as the composition of ultra-high functional materials, ultrafine fabrication, single-molecular measurement, and single-molecular operation. It was under these circumstances that the High-Tech Research Center was drawn up in the 2015 academic year with the goal of developing highly functional nano materials and researching micro-nano mechatronics devices. To achieve these research goals, we established the Micro-Nano Development Research Center (MNDRC). Through this approach, we have been successful in achieving our original goals.

"Center for Cow Science and Research" is a research Centre dedicated to undertake 'Indigenous Cows Centric' basic, applied & adaptive research on all aspects of production, reproduction & amp; health care. We have committed to improvement, conservation and promotion of native germ-plasm of cows. We are also studying the molecular and genetic epidemiology of various infectious diseases like Johne's disease (JD), Brucellosis, Mastitis, Foot and Mouth disease, etc in cows and other ruminants. We are screening the animal population to identify the breeds and genetic lines of animals (dams and sires) resistant/ susceptible to diseases which help in conservation of the precious breeds and save them from extinction. We are also screening the human population for Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) infection suspected for Crohn's disease (CD) and other auto immune disorders like Diabetes, Arthritis, Thyroid disorder, etc. Our main focus is to reduce the animal and human infections by reducing the contamination of milk, water, pastures and environment.
