ABOUT

Research and development (R&D) includes activities that institutes or companies undertake to innovate and introduce new products and services. It is often the first stage in the development process. The goal is typically to take new products and services to market and add to the institute’s or company’s list of achievement and highlights. It is an art of Scientific Careful Investigation and Systematic Search for getting information on a Specific Topic. It is actually a Voyage of Discovery. Research is mainly based on the facts of Qualitative and Quantitative approach. It provides the bases nearly, for all Government Policies in their Economic System.
AITM Supports and Encourages sustainable and Quality Research Activities to the Staff and Students Community. Presently more than 40 Faculty members are involved in Research work and Registered for their Ph.D., under various Universities. The Institution is also having Recognized Research centers in Physics and Chemistry Departments by VTU, Belagavi. Further, it is proud to say that, the AITM has received Three Research Project Grants from VGST along with Awards to department of Civil Engineering, Physics and Chemistry in past two years.

Process

Research Centre @ Civil Engineering Department:

Research Centre in the department of Civil Engineering was established in the year 2016-17, to offer Ph.D / M.Sc (Engg.) by Research programs in accordance with the regulations of VTU, Belagavi. The center refers to innovation activities undertaken in the filed of Environmental Engineering, particularly in Waste Management System.

The R&D center provides solutions related to treatment of various types of organic and inorganic wastes which are generated from residential and industrial areas. Further, research related to drinking water quality, ground water contamination, Bio-composting process for Sugar and Distillery industries. Vermicomposting of industrial and agricultural waste are being carried out currently.

VGST SPONSORED LABORATORY

Department of Civil Engineering has been received a grant of Rs. 40.0 Lakhs from Vision Group of Science and Technology, Department of Information Technology, Biotechnology, Science and Technology Bengaluru, Government of Karnataka in the year 2014-2015. This grant received under VGST program of K-First (Level-II). The research project was proposed under Investigation studies on “Effective utilization of distillery Spent wash and Press mud from Sugar industry in composting process”. The by-products from the two industries are considered as most significant in compare with waste from other organic waste producing industries. Since without a proper treatment, these waste by-products cannot be disposed off on land and water bodies and it creates potential hazards to the environment.

Our department is having an unique M.Tech course in Karnataka state on “Waste Water Management, Health and Safety Engineering” since 2014-2015 approved by AICTE New Delhi and affiliated to VTU, Belagavi.

Also we are very happy to say that our department has been recognised as VTU- Research centre of our Institution. We have well established laboratory on water and waste water analysis. Various Investigational studies were carried out in our research centre, to generate organic compost as a manure for agricultural purpose using sugar industrial by-product (Pressmud) and distillery spent wash using vermi compost and microbial consortium process.
