Directorate of Research


SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST) have taken various research initiatives over the years to mobilize the available knowledge resources for research and also, to come up strongly with innovative solutions.

All the research centers of SRMIST function in a cooperative manner to identify and initiate applied as well as cross-disciplinary research projects, create and combine patentable Intellectual Property (IP) components, design and develop prototypes & proof of concepts, manage and market products & solutions (through know-how transferred incubated companies), win and work to deliver funded research projects.



Research Institute

As a special research initiative of SRMIST, SRM Research Institute (SRMRI) came into existence in January 2012 to realize a great vision of the President, Prof. P. Sathyanarayanan.
