Overview

Water resources are fast diminishing world wide and the quality of the available water has also deteriorated over time. There is a need to conserve this important natural resource through education, training, technology driven systems approach, etc. Israel and some other countries have done pioneering work in the area of desert development technologies. The Ben Gurion University in Israel has developed technologies for conservation of water in irrigation, particularly the drip irrigation systems. In India, some companies have taken know how from Israel for the production of drip irrigation systems.Further, rapid developments have taken place in integrated computer based sensors and associated wireless systems. By developing wireless sensor systems, a higher level of sensor technology is possible. Tissue culture and biotechnology have revolutionised the development of new variety of plants, etc. Thus there is a need to develop advanced technologies in this area for conservation of water, energy etc. and improve productivity.

Team

Our faculty have extensive experience in industry, research as well as teaching. Our strength is a reflection of their skills, innovation and drive.

Achievements

A water management system consisting of rainwater harvesting pipelines, tank, solar pump, and drip irrigation equipment has been constructed and a plantation that uses water from this system developed.
 
A biotechnology complex consisting of a tissue culture lab and Greenhouse has been constructed. Rare desert plants like Gagool, Jatropha, etc are being propagated and exploration of new crops like Olive is being explored.
 
Nurseries to take the greenhouse plants are under implementation.
Last four years research has been focused on the energy efficient houses. For the purpose, four rooms were constructed with different architectural elements.
 
Last two years three papers are published in International reputed journals and two reputed International conferences and one Ph.D. scholar has completed her doctorate along with some first-degree projects.
 
Last year (2017) the solar house was integrated with rain water harvesting scheme and tank was covered, extended roof is fabricated to harness more rainwater and some roof tops were connected. 
 
This year (2018) ground is cleaned and leveled to apply contour irrigation system. Downward slope is made to flow the water in one direction.
