Message From The Dean
Since the upgradation of FCC to a University, it is being developed on modern lines to give due importance to research while meeting all the requirements of liberal arts education. In order to meet the objectives of a University, the faculty at FCCU is actively engaged in a great variety of ongoing research activities and projects. Efforts have been made to encourage multi and interdisciplinary approach to research. These activities span the entire range of all of the disciplines that are represented at FCCU namely Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences, Business, Public Policy, and Education. We have initiated postgraduate programs in all these disciplines.
Our faculty in all disciplines have attracted considerable external funding to support the research activities. FCCU has also established an Internal Research Innovation Fund (IRIF) to support faculty and students for small research projects. In addition, a special emphasis is being placed on entrepreneurship through establishing the Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC).
Our research produces new discoveries and insights, and makes contributions to numerous applications that benefit society. Such results of our research by faculty and students are regularly showcased among the faculty, entrepreneurs, and civil society, and in due time we will establish a business incubator to facilitate commercialization of results.
