What is CRG
The Core Research Group is a unique initiative of AISECT University to foster research culture in the University.
Research work demands large number resources in terms of money, time and infrastructure with attached uncertainly of result and longer time scale for success. Private Universities have to mostly depend on own resources and that is the reason that, in private universities, not much research activities seen. But AISECT University is a lot different.
Research is a core area here. To underline the concern the Core Research Group has been set up. With initial funding of One Crore basic research facilities were set up in AISECT University.
