Innovation and Incubation Centre

Manav Rachna Innovation and Incubation Centre (MRIIC) is an initiative aimed at fostering and supporting the growth of knowledge-based and technology-driven startups. It does so by providing guidance, mentorship, and assistance to students, encouraging them to break free from the confines of traditional educational systems. This centre acts as a shared platform where students from various disciplines, both in engineering and non-engineering fields, collaborate to develop innovative and creative projects.

The centre has secured support from the Government of India-funded NewGen Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (NewGen IEDC) to facilitate the process of students turning their ideas and innovations into commercially viable ventures. Additionally, the centre benefits from the active involvement of an enthusiastic Entrepreneurship Development Cell, which is entirely student-run. This cell is responsible for organizing regular workshops and seminars on entrepreneurship, with a focus on identifying budding innovators at the grassroots level and guiding them in their journey toward becoming successful entrepreneurs.

MRIIC operates as an incubator that is not limited to any particular industry, welcoming student ideas through a rigorous screening process. Once selected, students receive comprehensive support, including access to state-of-the-art prototyping equipment and software to bring their business ideas to life. Each chosen student startup is eligible for a prototype development grant of up to Rs. 2.5 lakhs.

Industry Partnerships

MRIIRS boasts state-of-the-art research facilities, including modern laboratories, well-equipped libraries, and access to extensive online resources along with industry integrated centre of excellences such as Centre for Advanced Water Treatment Board, Mitsubishi electric India, Honda, and Microsoft to pursue the research in their area of expertise. To make it easier for researchers to access e-resources, MRIIRS has set up a center with Springer and Nature. This means that students and faculty can easily reach and use a wealth of electronic research materials and publications from these reputable sources. It’s a valuable resource for research and academic pursuits at MRIIRS. MoU’s with numerous industries such as Microsoft, Intel, Electric One, Mitsubishi Electric India, HCL and Infispark aiming to offer students and faculty members valuable exposure by means of hands-on experience, training, and workshops.

MRIIRS is also equipped with IoT centre in the Department of Electronics and communication Engineering through the government scheme MODROB (Modernization and Removal of Obsolescence).

To enhance the skills of the students, apart from the Departmental Industry collaborations, Career Development Centre (CDC) and Career Resource centre (CRC) provide great chances for students to get acquainted with corporate culture, which helps them prepare for future jobs at these companies after they graduate. These collaborations also give students the chance to receive specialized training in industrial applications, making them more skilled at navigating the complexities of the industrial world.

New Initiatives towards teaching and learning MOOCs

Self-Learning is an important part of student’s overall growth in the institute. It helps to keep them pace with the updated dynamic world outside the campus. It not only helps them acquire knowledge of some advanced topics and courses but improves their overall personality.

Students are motivated to attend Webinars, Technical lectures, Symposia, Conferences, Workshops and Training in their related interest areas. Many digital resources in the form of e-books and e-journals are available with the library website that is provided with remote access to better accessibility for the students.

SWAYAM MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) are offered by UGC in self learning mode through online portal.

The MOOC courses recommended for all semesters of B.Tech Biotechnology students may be domain related such as Human Molecular Genetics, Soft Nanotechnology; Introduction to Dynamical Models in Biology; Medical Biomaterials; Introduction to Proteomics.

The students are also encouraged to take up MOOC courses of generic nature such as Principles of Human Resource Management; Foundation course in Managerial Economics; Project Management; Health Research Fundamentals; Enhancing soft skills and Personality; Speaking Effectively.

List of MOOC Courses for three sessions

Students are also encouraged to pursue technical trainings during summer/ winter vacations so that the period is utilized for learning and enhancing the practical skills. Students pursue such trainings at research organizations of industry where they gain the knowledge about carrying out experimentations using a sophisticated high end equipment/ facility.

They are guided by a mentor in the laboratory and are also taught about the interpretation of data and its subsequent analysis. This is one way by which students are able to gain insight into cutting edge research tools and keep themselves abreast with the technological advancements.

Short Term Technical Trainings pursued by students

In this spirit, Department of Biotechnology organizes Seminars/ Conferences/ Guest Lectures to extend the benefit of ‘Beyond the Curriculum Learning’ and sharing of knowledge.
