Research

Overview

Research is the backbone of academics. It simplifies concept building and transforms new ideas into innovations in pursuance of a new era of passion for researches. Each finding gives immense pleasure and multiplies enthusiasm towards achieving target. Every Department creates awareness and opportunities in Research and Development among the faculty and students and to create Research and Development atmosphere in every department. Departments encourage faculties and students to publish technical papers for publishing in National and reputed International Conferences/ Journals.

Ongoing Research Activities

Department of Architecture

  • The Department of Architecture of the College with the collaboration of ICOMOS has an ongoing research project related to a comprehensive thematic study of heritage structures of 20th century across the country. This particular research work focuses on the assessment of historical built forms from the colonial era of pro-independence time to post independence time, thereby narrating the socio-cultural, socio-political as well as socio economic scenario focusing on the city of Kolkata’s overall chaotic urban growth, which is piece-meal in nature, creating haphazard spatial environment, and thus ignoring the landmark heritage structures. Thus, an intervention is necessary based on certain parameters and sub parameters for the identification of ‘value based heritage assets’ and its related process for conservation of the same, so that the undocumented legacy of the 20th century can be identified.
  • The next research project which is under process will be a combined study of 2nd Year as well as 3rd year students of the Department focusing on the slowly disappearing built forms of certain neighborhoods of the city and its suburbs. In this context, a research work will be carried out based on photographic identification of built heritage structures and thereby establishing their significant roles in the overall urban fabric of Kolkata. Accordingly, an attempt will be made to synthesize the outcome of this research work in a structured and sequential manner.
  • Use of locally available materials, like bamboo and hogla, in various building materials. This requires laboratory work and tie ups with various testing agencies and research institutes have been contemplated.

Department of Computer Science & Engineering

  • Automatic Number plate detection and recognition from surveillance camera image
  • The institute registered as a participating institute in the country’s biggest challenge Smart India Hackathon 2022 which is a nationwide initiative to provide students with a platform to solve some of the pressing problems we face in our daily lives, and thus inculcate a culture of product innovation and a mindset of problem-solving organized by AICTE, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India & MoE’s INNOVATION CELL, Govt. of India.
