To extend the scientific research knowledge of faculty for the benefit of industry, consultancy is one of the methods. The institute support and encourage the faculty in taking up consultancy (and testing) work that have elements of industrial problems solving. Relevant consultancy project will not only provide much needed service to the industry but also benefit the concerned faculty members and the Institute in several ways. It enriches the professional experience and knowledge of faculty members and thus makes them better educators. Consultancy projects provide a first- hand knowledge of the current problems of industry, which is very helpful in tuning the curriculum to the national needs.
