Research Cells


The college has constituted Research Cell for the advancement of research activities of faculty and for the development of  an ecosystem to interconnect and interact with learned community for innovations. It has developed an initiative called Departmental Advisory Committee (DAC) as part of college Research Cell (RC) for creation and transfer of knowledge. DAC is constituted department wise with members are all faculty of that department with an external advisor who is competent enough to guide faculty for carrying out interdisciplinary research. 
The college has two research centres one in Mathematics and the other in Kannada.  It is mandatory to have a research advisory committee for research centres to regulate research activities. Research Centre in Mathematics has got funding continuously from DST, UGC, VGST, KSTA and Science Academies for major, minor research projects and lecture series. This centre has been recognised as Centre for Innovative Science Education by Government of Karnataka, Bengaluru.

To extend research activities to all other departments MES College of Arts, Commerce and Science has constituted a Research Cell (RC).  
The following are the aims and objectives of Research Cell:


Aims and Objectives:


⦁    To recognise the thrust area of research.
⦁    To train teachers about writing research papers and proposals for research projects to funding agencies like UGC, CSIR, DST and NBHM, KSST and Social women and welfare association.
⦁    To encourage student participation in research activities.
⦁    To publish papers and articles in reputed journals.
⦁    To train students and staff on latest software used in research activities.
⦁    To encourage faculty to host and attend seminars, workshops and conferences on recent developments in research.

 

Constitution of Committee:


It consists of external advisors from reputed institutes.  As per the advice of external committee members every department has constituted  Department Advisory Committee (DAC) by inviting an external advisor who has vast knowledge of research and good academic record from reputed institutes.

List of DAC members

Functions of Committee:

  • Committee will review academic and research activities of the department and guide them how to enhance research capacities of faculty involving students.

  • Research Committee will guide faculties to identify advanced research areas and help them to write projects for funding agencies. The activities of this committee will be monitored by IQAC.
     

Expected Outcomes:


Generation of research funding. Establishing of standard collaborative research. Good applicable outcome in terms of Publication. Involving students in research and cultivating research culture at undergraduate level.

Knowledge Sharing Activities:


The college has taken an initiative to popularise and explain the Nobel Prize winning topics to common people by arranging talks on respective subjects every year as soon as Nobel prizes are announced.  We also arrange talks on the topics of Field Medal conferred to Mathematicians.

Bulletin of Applied Sciences


 

A bulletin is a scholarly periodical of a learned society. As a part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of our institution, we brought out our own bulletin, MES Bulletin of Applied Sciences. We will be publishing articles of Mathematical Sciences (i.e., Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science), Physical Sciences (i.e., Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy), Life Sciences (i.e., Botany, Zoology, Biotechnology) and Social Sciences (Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology). This bulletin will be a biannual journal. Two issues will be released in a year, one in March and the other in September. The first issue was released on March 22, 2018.

 

March 2018                       September 2018
