In the year 2015-16 we started the year with an orientation of students about Avishkar by Dr Pradeep Khamtekar, Avishkar Coordinator at University of Mumbai on 10th August 2015.
Avishkar Research Convention Committee was constituted for the first time in our college in academic year 2012-13 with Dr (Mrs) Anjum Ara M. K. Ahmad as the Convenor of the committee. The other committee members are Mrs Mariyah Ghor, Mr Vishwas Deshmukh and Mr Sameer Charania. The program received an overwhelming response from the Students. Due to the efforts taken by various teachers we managed to send sixteen groups to Inter-University Avishkar Research Convention held in Mumbai University. We had that year good representation of students from Botany and Zoology Department under the guidance of Dr. Nitesh Joshi, Prof Alkama and Dr. Shaheeda Rangonwala and Dr. Rana.
We organised many training sessions for students at college level. Our Principal Dr. M. Z. Faroooqui takes keen interest in these research activities. He is our main source of inspiration. Various experts from other colleges were called to train and guide our student.
We had two rounds of Competition. The first round was an intra-collegiate level round where three students were given prizes for their best project and presentation. Vignesh Salian of TYBAF whose research on 'Metering-The Unmetered' won him the first position in the intra-collegiate level. Ms Sheeba's project received the second prize. Ms Sheeba was trained by Alkama. Students who went upto the final level at the Intra- Collegiate round were trained and asked to participate at the University level. Six students from Undergraduate level and one student at the post graduate level participated in Avishkar Research Convention at the University. Two student Mr. Adil Shaikh and Mr. Mohsin Khan won at the Zonal Level both in Commerce & Management Category.
