At MITGI we believe that Knowledge, Research, Innovation, and Skill development are the main tools for the nation building and we are committed to meet the expectations. An ‘Innovation cell’ with a purpose of systematically fostering the culture of Innovation has been established in the College. In the simplest term, Innovation could be defined as converting ideas into new or improved products, processes and services. Undoubtedly, Innovation is about taking inventions to marketplace by translating scientific knowledge into products, services and offerings for economic growth and social development. The purpose of the cell is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by exposing them to new ideas and processes resulting in innovative activities in their formative years. The cell is the bridge between the real world and the institute related to “Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development” amongst students and faculties. Cell focuses to reorient mind-set of students and build ecosystems to encourage high quality research, innovation and entrepreneurship and is very much helpful to guide students about latest entrepreneurial schemes. Cell further set guidelines and directions for future development of students for making them globally competitive and in forefront of innovation.
