The Research Forum was originally envisaged by Dr. Daphne Pillai, Secretary, MES as a forum to give opportunities for the researchers – both students and faculty – of MES Institutions to discuss their research projects and also publish their research work. This forum critically examines various aspects of engineering. The Forum sets itself the task of disseminating factually accurate information in addition to analysis on different aspects in engineering.

The Forum encompasses diverse and interesting topics in the field of Engineering and Engineering Education. In addition to presentations of research papers by faculty and students, the forum provides an opportunity to postgraduate students to present their Masters Project Proposals in front of invited experts. This unique feature has enabled the postgraduate students to get clarity about their project and thus enable them to proceed with the project work timely.

Several projects were on display for all to see and appreciate. Some noteworthy projects were an indigenously designed LCD Projector, e-samay (an electronic pooja lamp) etc.

The forum was a successful event which enriched the research community and motivated others to do more research in different areas in engineering.
