CHITKARA UNIVERSITY RESEARCH & INNOVATION
NETWORK (CURIN)

We let you embark on research from day one. Research is open to 100% of Chitkara engineering students. Through Chitkara University Research and Innovation Network (CURIN), our researchers, staff and students work across disciplines to extend the boundaries of knowledge. 11 Centres of advanced research under CURIN build and sustain Chitkara University’s competitive advantage through leadership. These centers and institutes are the locus of research for collaborative groups of investigators pushing the frontiers of knowledge forward. They are involved in cutting edge research, exploring new technologies to improve the country’s infrastructure and safety — and contributing to society through many other discoveries and innovations.

We believe every student benefits from being taught by experts active in research and practice. You will discuss the very latest ideas, research discoveries and new technologies in seminars and in the field and you will become actively involved in a research project yourself. All our academic staff are active in internationally-recognised scientific research across a wide range of topics. You will also be taught by leading industry practitioners.

There are always numerous engineering research projects in progress, funded by industry, charities, government departments and research councils.

Our undergraduate students benefit through access to up-to-date equipment, industrially linked projects and staff expertise.

A RESEARCH & PRACTICE LED CULTURE WITH SOME INNOVATIVE OUTCOMES:dual-operated-rickshaw

MULTI PURPOSE DUAL OPERATED RICKSHAW/PEDICAB

Shivam Sahni, first year student filed a patent on e-pedicab. e-pedicab is a multipurpose dual operated rickshaw which is a simple, cost effective, innovative substitute for three wheel manually operated rickshaw. It is a solution for the rickshaw pullers who carry heavy loads for livelihood. The wheels are arranged in a diamond pattern. Instead of two wheels in front and two in back, this new design features an additional wheel at the rear t increase robustness and easy maneuverability. The diamond shaped geometry, allows the chassis to form a planar, simple and stable structure. The rickshaw can be operated by dual mechanism, either by motor or by manual paddling. This technology has been showcased and has won laurels in some of the biggest techfests organized in India.
