Dedicated Research Centers have been established in the University to focus on research activities. These Centers have also received substantial funding from UGC & DBT. Five Research Centers and a Bioinformatics Facility are at the core of the Research Activities in the Unioversity.
The Training & Placement department of the university is continuously engaged in organizing Field Training to the students of professional programs like B.Tech, B.Arch, M.Tech & M.B.A. Students are actively involved in this process along with the support of the faculty members. Placement of the passing out students is a major thrust area of the department with good results.
SMVDU recognises that Research is it's Riason d' etre and therefore a substantial part of the University infrastructure is focussed on research work. Faculty members and Research Scholars are focussed on high-end research work in various fields of Science, Engineering, Management & Humanities.
The Central Library is located right at the heart of the University's Academic area and is one of the most frequented facilities. Besides the Central Library each college has it's own Reference Library located in their respective buildings for easy access to information.
