Marian Centre for Advanced Research

The idea of a common research Centre under the banner of St. Mary’s College was conceived during late 2017 and was materialized in 2018. The major objective of such research facility was to coordinate and conduct inter disciplinary research projects campaigning various science departments of the college.
