As a researcher, it is mandatory for one to understand the basics, have a core idea to satisfy the purpose of Research and establish an acceptable conclusion. This FDP provided an opportunity to the academicians to enhance their researching skills and understand research methodologies. This FDP program covered aspects relating to literature review, framing objective, collection of data, analyzing the data and finally framing it into a research paper or patent or funded proposal. This FDP aimed to orient participants towards developing their own research plan, with due attention to every stage of research.

With this objective in mind, Dept. of Information Science and Engineering, Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering, along with IQAC, MVJCE, Bangalore, organized a Five-day Faculty Development Program on ‘Research Methodology and Data Analysis’, from 25.01.2021 to 30.01.2021. 66 faculty members and research scholars participated in this program.
