pec: Research document essential to obtain a Pec scholarship | Chandigarh News
Chandigarh: Scholars who do a PhD from the reputed Punjab Engineering College (PEC) will now only get a scholarship if they publish an article in the third year.
With this, researchers are busy writing research papers under the supervision of their guides. This time, PEC has combined research and performance to increase the number of publications and boost research.
At the PEC Senate meeting held a few days ago, his administration proposed that the institute be advanced in all types of rankings, from the NIRF. For this, research must be linked to performance. The proposal was appreciated by members of the Senate and lengthy discussions took place. It was decided that as soon as a researcher enters second or third year, he or she will have to write a high quality research paper.
Researchers can use their guide for this. A PEC scholarship will also be awarded on the basis of this performance. The link between the scholarship and research gave an additional incentive to researchers.
Speaking to TOI, PEC Director Baldev Setia said: “We want academics to come forward and present their research that can be used more. Research is the most important thing and we want to be good at it.
