Achieving Excellence in Technical Education, Research and Consulting through an Outcome Based Curriculum focusing on Continuous Improvement and Innovation by Benchmarking against the global Best Practices.
Revised Focus on Research in line with the Institutional Vision
Impetus for research with a focus on identified interdisciplinary areas based on the institutional strength, and with the emphasis on creating an USP as an institute.
To work with industries big and small, in line with the new RVCE Vision, to help RVCE and even India transform into the leader in Knowledge and Technology, as India was 500 years back. Including aspects of sustainable development as practiced in ancient India or as Advocated by the father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, by leveraging global knowledge and delivering local solutions. The nature of engagement could be:
a) From small incremental development to development of disruptive innovation,
b) Right from Market Survey to Concept Creation, Proof of Concept, Development, Testing & Verification to Pilot production.
c) Provision for end to end solution with indigenization and provision for scale up in collaboration with industries.
