Research Fellowship Program

Research Fellowship Program

Introduction

The Research Fellowship Program Initiated by ISNEE Research and Development Organization (IRDO), has been designed to offer a research platform to engineering students of the nation. Under this program, we provide a pre-manufactured, ready to run electric auto (three-wheeler) to the participants that further works as a research subject for them. With vast potential and scope, the program seeks to attract the best talent into research thereby realizing the vision of development through innovation.

This research program aims to provide the students with practical exposure that broadens their imagination, to explore and establish links between academics and industry. Also, it aims to assist the participants in developing and carrying out major research projects. This 12-month project is powered by ISNEE MOTORSPORTS in the form of national-level exposition.

We aim to

  • Support the development of the auto industry workforce through fellowship opportunities for graduate and postgraduate students hence their professional development.
  • Emphasize the critical need to provide leading-edge training and learning opportunities for students. These investments include support for experimental learning opportunities, student training, curriculum development, and development of methods to improve the recruitment and retention of students.

4- Vehicle Dispatch- This phase comes after two months from the date of enrollment wherein, completely assembled and ready to run vehicle (without battery) is shipped to the institution. Delivery time is subjected to enrollment time; however, we always attempt to deliver the vehicle before the aforesaid time of two months.

5- Project Undertaking- Under this phase, teams are asked about the list of innovations, modifications, and upgrades they want to add to the vehicle.

Note- Project Undertaking once submitted cannot be changed by the participants until they obtain permission by sending mail to the concerned Customer Relationship Manager.

Note- Project Undertaking is to be submitted online through team account.

6- Document Submission- In this phase, teams need to submit their detailed documents about their project planning for Research and Development as per given formats. All about their idea and method for a particular innovation.

7- R&D- Minimum of five months are given to the teams for research, development, and implementation of the ideas on to the vehicle. These additions must comply to the submitted project undertaking.

8- Doucment Submission- In this phase, teams need to submit their research documents and a brief report of the R&D they have done. Reports to be submitted are as follows:

    • Cost Estimation [only for additions]
    • Design Report [only for additions]
    • Supportive Documents [e.g. calculations, design iterations, etc. only for additions]

9- Assessment- Assessment is done to postulate the much-required review on the work done, reports, cost, and utility of the innovations/upgrades. A pre-assigned group of technical experts from the EV industry examines the reports and suggests teams the potential changes to be made before the expo.

10- Exposition- Finally, all the registered institutions are invited to an expo where they showcase the re-innovated/upgraded vehicles. They also receive the certificate of excellence, certificate of participation, certificate of appreciation, awards, trophies, etc. according to their performance. This all is done based on the evaluation of their vehicles, reports and interviews, and interactions.
