Research plays a significant role in the process of conceptual thinking, learning and innovation. Since its inception, the Institution has been striving to develop in the area of excellence in education and research in consonance with the contemporary and future needs of India through meaningful education, original research and leadership in technological innovation for the industrial growth of the Country. With the path-breaking innovations in both its curriculum and research, the Institution is rapidly gaining a legendary reputation globally.
In addition to offering formal Undergraduate and Post-graduate Programs, the Institution actively encourages its faculty and students to undertake in-house and sponsored research and consultancy projects in order to strengthen the research profile of the Institution. Research and development is carried in several areas of engineering, basic and applied sciences, management, literature, physiotherapy, nutrition & dietetics, health, energy and environment, manufacturing, sports rehabilitation etc.
The institute encourages active learning to help build critical thinking skills of its students and prepare them for research. Quality research needs committed students to move the research agenda forward. Therefore a student at MRIU gets a world class education and gets to participate in great research work. For the students, it is an ideal place to learn how high quality research is done. Being a science intensive engineering education the students are more future ready and are able to adapt to new technologies. And thanks to the big emerging opportunities for new technologies, more and more students are today choosing a research oriented job over a job that does not involve formal research. MRIU prepares its students well for such jobs.
The Institution has to its credit, over 2200 research publications in International Journals, National Journals, International Conferences and National Conferences. This includes many papers listed in the Scopus database, Web of Science and Science citation index. 88 Patents have been filed /granted to faculty and students.
