International Research Centre

International Research Centre (IRC) is a central facility with sophisticated diagnostic instruments. Its main objective is to offer services to all the research scholars and students of all the departments in the University (KARE) for analyzing their research materials.IRC provides these facilities for their research with a request from the research scholars and it will be processed through the concern department Heads as well as the Lab In charges for carrying out their research. Training programs and workshops/seminars are being organized regularly for laboratory staff and research scholars in the focused areas of materials characterization and analysis.

The UGC mission of IRC program will have the following objectives.

  1. To encourage universities with a view to strengthen their technological infrastructure through collaborative efforts of the academic community of the university.
  2. To maximize use of expensive equipment’s in universities through training and suitable pooling mechanism with the help of IRCs.
  3. To provide services to departments/offices of the university colleges in service and maintenance of their instruments and assist to provide services on analytical and specialized instruments.
  4. To organize training programmes in instrumentation for the teachers, students and technical staff of the universities/colleges in the state.
