University has recognized the Institute as Research Centre (Ph.D) in Physics (Atmospheric Science). The Recognition is an outcome of Excellent facilities the Institute has created to carry out the research in the said area. The Ph.D. Programs are affiliated to JNTU, Hyderabad.
Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has identified the Institute as one of the28 locations in the country to establish its Mini Boundary Layer Mast (MBLM) Centre.The system uses advanced high resolution sensors to measure ambient temperature, relative humidity and wind vector at three different levels at 4.0 m, 8.0 m and 14.9 m. In addition to this it will measure rainfall (using a tipping bucket having resolution of 0.5 mm), net incoming solar radiation in long wave and short wave range, atmospheric pressure, soil temperature at seven levels and soil moisture at six levels.
All the data are collected at one second resolution and averaged for every four minutes. The averaged data is sent to a receiving station at ISRO HQ, Bangalore via SMS using a GSM mobile connection.Vice-Chancellor of JNTUH has inaugurated the centre on 4th Aug.2011
Two Research projects are being carried out with funding from ISRO and three Research Scholars working on these projects are pursuing their Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from JNTU, Hyderabad
HDFC has identified the Institute as the only Centre countrywide to launch its pilot “HDFC-Graduate Employability Program” (GEP@IT) under which 26 final year students completed their exclusive training during Jan.2012 to July 2012.
Dr.Renu Sud Karnad,MD,HDFC has launched this pilot program at VBIT campus on 2nd Jan.2012
