Centre for Cancer Research is aimed at understanding the progression of cancer and actively study the role of growth factor signaling during the cancer metastasis. The centre has cell culture and animal house facilities. The centre is also collaborating clinicians for joint research initiatives. Expertise of the centre facilities include cell culture, molecular biology and small experimental animal-based experiments.

Centre for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (CARVR)

The Centre for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality creates a digital space for people to experiment and collaborate on creating, distributing, and consuming new ideas and content. The objective of the Centre for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (CARVR) is to advance the research, development, and deployment of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies across various sectors and industries. CARVR aims to leverage these immersive technologies to create innovative solutions that enhance human experiences, improve productivity, and drive transformative change in education, healthcare, entertainment, training, and beyond. The centre offers innovative content, services, and technologies and promotes collaboration and technology adoption. The CARVR provides a platform to learn, apply, design, develop, and realize the realities of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in interdisciplinary domains. The expertise of faculties within the CARVR can vary widely depending on the specific focus areas, such as Augmented and Virtual Reality frameworks for creating immersive virtual environments using Unity and Unreal Engine. Further, our faculty’s expertise includes 3D modelling and animation for creating virtual Assets, characters, and environments using Blender and Maya.

Centre for Energy and Environment (CEE)

The Centre for Energy and Environment is dedicated to advancing research, education, and outreach in the fields of energy and environmental studies. CEE aims to find sustainable solutions to global energy inadequacy and environmental remediation, as global energy systems will experience major changes in the coming decades. These challenges call for scientific knowledge, innovative technology development, policy measures, and action at the local and global levels. The sustainability of the system will prove to be of prime importance- environmentally, economically, and socially. At present, faculty members of CEE are mainly working on metal oxides, zeolite-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), 2-D layer materials for energy storage, photocatalytic degradation, and water-splitting applications and solid polymer electrolytes for battery applications.

Advanced battery research centre (ABRC)

ABRC works in collaboration with Industries to develop energy storage systems based on Lithium-ion, Metal-air batteries, solar Photovoltaic (PV) and Hydrogen fuel cells. ABRC is a battery testing centre with all latest equipment’s to test batteries as per various international standards. ABRC imparts value-based education and permits students to do project works, internships, helps to become entrepreneurs and generate employment.
