Centre for Research Innovations & Development 

The Centre for Research Innovations & Development (CRID) is imperative for the inclusive intellectual growth. It is often the first critical step in innovation and drives technological improvements which lead to Science and Technology (S&T) growth. KG Reddy College of Engineering & Technology is continuously encouraging, supporting and promoting R&D activities by imparting training and workshops.

The institute is actively pursuing advanced research programs which are focused towards advancement of human knowledge and development of society. Research efforts are directed towards solving complex problems, delivering social benefits and driving economic prosperity, nationally as well as globally. The center (CRID) is responsible for the development and implementation of research strategy of the institute. It assists to formulate strategic planning for research and executing the plan. It Co-ordinates academic management of the research of the institute as a whole, encourages faculty and departments to increase research grant from different funding organization in India, encourages national and internationals Collaborations.


To become a centre of excellence recognized for fostering an ecosystem to promote research, innovation and development through strategic partnerships with academia, government organizations, and industries that will lead to the advancement of knowledge in STEM.  


  • Encourage faculty, students, and research scholars to conduct research through independent or Ph.D. driven projects and disseminate the results through publication in journals and conferences. 
  • Partner with industries for consultancy projects and engage in research that will result in innovations and intellectual property rights.  
  • Collaborate with government and non-government organizations through funded and independent projects that are aimed towards the advancement of research and development.
  • Provide infrastructure, research equipment, and capacity building that will support the conduction of research and development of innovations in the institution. 


  • To encourage faculty, undergraduate, and post-graduate students to engage in research activities that will motivate them to pursue higher education. 
  • To facilitate seminars, workshops, training programmes related to the promotion and conduction of research as well to create awareness on IPR and filing patents.
  • To support faculty and students for publishing research results through assistance in writing and reviewing papers prior to submission to conferences and peer reviewed journals. 
  • To design and implementation detailed guidelines for internal reviews that will lead to progress of research and Ph.D. among research scholars and faculty respectively.  
  • To assist faculty, students and other stake holders to apply for funding under various Government or Private Sector Schemes to promote research and innovation.
  • To partner with industries and other organizations focusing on co-development of research innovations through mutual cooperation. 

Objectives of CRID:

Research at KGRCET has been recognized as the primary activity to enhance teaching-learning process, and also to develop a unique identity as an institution that has committed itself to address societal issues through application of Science and Technology. The CRID division aims to continuously liaise with various funding agencies, R&D institutions, industries and faculty members of KGRCET to facilitate for undertaking innovative research in cutting-edge areas of application and social relevance.

  • Promote research and consultancy at institute level.
  • Facilitate interaction with external agencies like industries, government funding bodies.
  • Create multiple research thematic areas.
  • Significantly increase number of quality publications in refereed journals / conferences and intellectual property rights (IPR)
  • Assist faculty along with research scholars to write R&D proposals for external funding. 
  • Develop innovative products in the institute and exhibit those products at national level competitions.
