Green Chemistry and Catalysis
The main activity of the group is to undertake the synthesis, characterization and study of catalytic activity of catalysts based on ionic liquids and use of inorganic supports like clays and silica. The subject of green chemistry or green chemical processes is known to provide front end solution to eliminate use and generation of hazardous substances.
Geological Remote Sensing
The research group aims at working on problems relating to application of remote sensing to geological processes. Topics will be floated to carry out research by selecting problems in the close vicinity of Chandigarh.

High Performance Concrete
Construction and demolition waste generation has exceedingly increased around the world. Out of various types of construction and demolition waste, concrete constitutes about 80% of the total waste. Therefore, it is necessary to recycle concrete waste to recycled aggregate and recycled aggregate concrete.

Environment Engineering
The ground water sources are getting polluted due to percolating city waste waters, industrial effluents and other waste waters such as agricultural runoff meeting the polluted water drains. Though some times the percolating rainwater may also carry minerals of earth crust soils to the ground water and pollute it.
Information Security
The Information Security Research Group will create an environment for educational and research-related activities in information security. The results of the research will have the form of new knowledge published in prestigious journals and at international conferences, techniques applicable in computer engineering and demonstration of applications in the areas of information technology that contribute to solving the current security issues of our society.

Power Systems
Given the backdrop of rising overall energy demand, global warming, finite fossil fuel resources, cyber attack risks, power shortages, the potential of various renewable energies to contribute to a sustainable global energy supply assumes large importance. The Renewable Energy Group’s mission is to support the Sustainable Energy Technologies by developing solutions to key issues facing development and widespread deployment of Renewable Energy Technologies.
