A series of presentations entitled REFLECTION: Research and Publication were conducted by Dr. Zahid Ansari, Dean (Research),P.A. College of Engineering from 4thto 11thApril 2017,to motivate the faculty members of Mechanical, Civil, CSE, ECE,EEE, Biotechnology and Basic Science departments, to do the quality research and publications and unleash their skills. The major objective of the program was to enhance the research activities by activating and strengthening various research interest groups formed in each department.
In these presentations, Dr. Zahid Ansari emphasized, the importance of quality research in the growth of faculty members, academic institution, society and the nation as a whole.He encouraged the faculty members to enhance the activities of research interest groups formed in various departments by conducting periodical research specific meetings, discussions or presentations. He also requested the faculty members to set their personal research specific goals and publish at least one paper in a semester by utilising the vacation.
The series started with the first presentation at the Mechanical engineering department conference on 4th April 2017 from 12noon to 1pm in presence of HOD Mechanical and Vice-Principal Dr. Ramis M.K and Director (Academics) Prof SurfrazHashim.
