The beginning of research activities in the University dates back to the institution of the Department of Research in 1937 under the auspices of the University of Travancore founded in the same year. The research programs in various disciplines are undertaken presently by the departments and centres of teaching and research of the University and also by other research centres recognized by the University.
The Research Portal, a single point securely hosted solution, is customized to seamlessly integrate, search and manage the Ph.D research activities of the University. The research portal which is expected to be formally launched soon will cover various aspects related to Ph.D research. It is envisaged to streamline the administrative processes involved in submitting the application, issuing registration order and the like. Application for Ph.D registration as well as submission of monthly progress report is expected to be switched over to online shortly.
