Thomas Henry Huxley quotes, “The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.”The creation of new technical knowledge is exceedingly important in a world that is continually changing. A doctorate, being the highest degree awarded in academics, is a reflection of an institute’s commitment towards excellence and encouraging a research culture. Vidyalankar Institute of Technology has received approval from the University of Mumbai to initiate a Research Centre. Consequently, the Institute offers Doctoral Program in Computer Engineering. This signifies a major step in the Institute’s ultimate aim to progress from an educational institute in which research activities are conducted, into a globally-recognized research institute where technical education is imparted.
