Research Development Cell


“All birds find shelter during a rain. But Eagle avoids rain by flying above the clouds”

- Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam

Following this quote by Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, we can envision his footsteps for continuous innovation & disruption in every walk of life. The reality, that the common facts of today are a by-product of yesterday’s research can’t be ignored. Hence, with a view to follow the path shown by Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, we at Smt. Chandibai Himathmal Manuskhani College, Ulhasnagar have formed a Research Development Cell to propagate research culture among the faculty and students.

We always thrive at promoting research in faculty members and try our best to inculcate research culture in our upcoming generation of young students. We have a very vibrant research culture in the college represented by our faculty members from various departments, having published a good number of Research papers in peer reviewed journals and as proceedings in National and International Conferences.

Objectives of the Research Development Cell:

  • To identify, encourage, motivate and assist teachers to apply for PG recognition, PhD guide ship and starting of a research center.
