Research in academia and industry are complementary to each other.
One should be helpful to the other. Knowledge developed through excellence in academics should
find a suitable position in tomorrow's world. Research Scholars' Symposium (Rsymp) started its
journey in December 2006 when faculties along with students wanted to showcase the on-going
research in Chemical Engineering Department.
A committee was formed and ideas were developed to convert it to
an event. The First Research Scholars' Symposium took place on 10th Feb, 2007. The event was
graced by the active participation of lot of important personalities from industry and academia. The
final year PhD students have presented their research work while the pre-final year PhD students
have presented the posters.
The daylong event facilitated exchange of ideas between research and
academics and generated a number of interview calls for the final year PhD students.
