Promotion of Research
Research at BIT, Durg relies on the motivated intellectual manpower pool available among its faculty members and students. It promotes research among its staff and students. Research Development Cell (RDC) has been established with the Dean (R&D) as the Chair and HODs as members.
Students undertake research projects as a component of their education programme itself. Teachers conduct research as an integral part of their responsibilities since this enables them to assimilate and disseminate the knowledge as well as generate new knowledge.
At BIT, Durg, the staff and students are encouraged to publish their findings in reputed journals and present papers at conferences. In order to encourage excellence in research and innovation, cash rewards are given to faculty members for publishing papers in SCI/Scopus/UGC indexed journals. Financial support is also given to faculty members for presenting papers in the conferences and attending STTPs/workshops/seminars thereby can establish network with experts from India and abroad. Output on the other hand constitutes quality publications, patents, consultancy, MoUs, citations, distinguished awards/honours received by faculty and research scholars, and diverse research products and processes that enhance the quality of life and well-being of the society at large. During the last three years, BIT, Durg has seen a healthy growth in the amount of funding received from different agencies.
