The third volume of “Compendium of research publications” of faculty members of the National Institute of Engineering (NIE), Mysuru, was released by Dr Gopalakrishna Prabhu, Professor and Director, Manipal Institute of Technology, recently.
Prof Prabhu said that it is always good for a reputed institution to conduct research in thrust areas, jointly. “Such joint efforts would complement each other’s efforts. The faculty members should have passion in addressing the ‘real-world’ problems. If the lab facilities are good in colleges, the passionate faculty members can achieve breakthroughs in research,” he added.
Prof Prabhu said “About 60 percent of the research publications for the year 2015 by NIE faculty are in reputed international journals, and it clearly speaks of their interest in good quality research.”
This is the third year in succession that NIE is bringing out the compendium. The compendium consists of all 188 research articles published during 2015 by the NIE faculty at different international and national journals and presented at international and national conferences. Out of the 188 research articles, 110 were published in international journals and 13 in national journals. They also presented papers in 47 international conferences and 18 national conferences. One book and a book chapter were also published by the faculty.
Principal Dr G L Shekar, Dr Suresha Bheemappa, editors of the compendium Dr M K Sachidanandan and Y S Harish were present.
