Dr. MGR Educational and Research Institute is a proud recipient of an Institutional grant NewGenIEDC from Dept. of Science and Technology, Govt. of India to develop the spirit of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the University campus.This is a 5 year grant (2017-2022) which is managed by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Center of Excellence in Innovation and Entrepreneurship of the Institute.Till date MGR DST NewGenIEDC has funded 25 student prototypes, has published 5 patents and 7 start-ups have evolved from the center.The Student Start-up center has a dedicated instrumentation facility and co-working space for student entrepreneurs.
About DST NewGenIEDC Grant
New Generation Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (NewGen IEDC) is a programme launched by National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board (NSTEDB), Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India and implemented by EDII, Ahmedabad.
NewGen IEDC aims to inculcate the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship amongst the young S&T students, encourage and support start-up creation through guidance, mentorship & support. NewGen IEDCs established in our academic institutions to encourage students to take up innovative projects with possibility of commercialization. Dr MGR DST NewGen IEDC would also spread the message of entrepreneurship and create a culture of entrepreneurship. With faculty already trained in entrepreneurship, the presence of Dr MGR DST NewGen IEDC would create a vibrant entrepreneurial culture amongst the students. Few amongst the "Job-Seekers" would be converted to "Job Generators" through the entrepreneurial route.

CAA deals with the Documentation of rural and urban context. This Documentation includes recording classification and disseminative of information. This is done at 3 levels Settlement level, Street level and Building level
CENTRE FOR SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE ? (CSA)
CSA encourages faculty and students doing Study on energy efficiency, green buildings during
PG level and in Ph.D Programme.
In this regard we have started a department Journal club named ? MAYAN?and regular research meetings will happen at department to discuss on research activities done by students and faculty.
Test engine setup is used to find the performance and combustion parameters of Variable
Compression Ratio of Diesel Engine and also to find the performance and combustion
parameters of Variable Compression Ratio Multi-Fuel Engine. Wide range of combustion studies can be conducted with the help of this setup. Engine Combustion and performance parameters
