Research Statistics

At SSN, pushing the boundaries of knowledge is a vital part of a truly progressive academic culture. Research in current, new and especially emerging areas will ensures that the nation is prepared to meet its future challenges and needs. To encourage active research in SSN institutions, a Research Advisory Council has been formed to steer research initiatives and encourage faculty and students to realise our founder, Padma Bhushan Dr. Shiv Nadar’s vision that they should rise to the level of Nobel Laureates. The Council is chaired by Padma Bhushan Dr. Shiv Nadar. Padma Bhushan Dr. Raj Reddy, Prof. Damodar Acharya, Dr.R.Natarajan and Dr.N.Balakrishnan all noted scientists. Our skilled, qualified faculty is encouraged by the Management to initiate research, with the ECE, EEE, MECH, BME, CSE, IT, CHEM, English Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry departments being recognised research centres under Anna University.
