Centre for Research and Postgraduate Studies (CRPS)


The Centre for Research and Postgraduate Studies (CRPS) was established to effectively engage the academic staff in the University’s research activities which are crucial for the existence of any university. It took over the activities done by the then Centre for Research, Publication and Consultancy (CRPC) which was established in 2012.

The University regards the CRPS activities as vital for the diffusion of expertise for the benefit of a wider community and the academic staff is strongly encouraged to take a lead in the promotion of creativity and innovation through research.
