RESEARCH TEAM OF MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT
COORDINATOR-: DR. JIGNASA MEHTA (HEAD OF DEPARTMENT)
The purpose of research can be a complicated issue and varies across different scientific fields and disciplines. At the most basic level, science can be split, loosely, into two types, ‘pure research’ and ‘applied research’.
Both of these types follow the same structures and protocols for propagating and hypotheses and predictions, but vary slightly in their ultimate purpose.
An excellent example for illustrating the difference is by using pure and applied mathematics. Pure math’s is concerned with understanding underlying abstract principles and describing them with elegant theories. Applied math’s, by contrast, uses these equations to explain real life phenomena, such as mechanics, ecology and gravity.
The general purpose of the research is,
1. That you understand the field you study and the issues of the field.
2. That you can generate ideas that prove your understanding of the field and the material.
3. That you can make intelligent observations to support or prove those ideas.
4. That you can apply and integrate source material.
5. That you can develop and organize your ideas in the form of thesis and support.
6. That you can present your ideas in writing logically and correctly.
7. That you can document your sources according to the style guide used in your field.
