I deem it a great pleasure in welcoming the aspiring young minds to ’Centre for Multi--Disciplinary Systems Research ’ (CMDSR), CEG, Anna University , Chennai- 25. Multidisciplinary research takes place when faculty from different disciplines work independently on a common problem or research question. In this approach, faculty share research goals and work on the same problem, but look at it from their own discipline’s perspective. The findings from each discipline are supplementary to each other. The advantage to multidisciplinary research is that each aspect can be analyzed by a particular specialty, which is often necessary to answer complex research problems. Technological innovations, from modern symbiotic system processes through novel system integrated technology with multi disciplinary approach are needed for evolving smart solutions to highly complex systems. Inter and Multi-Disciplinary approach is a mode of research by teams or individuals that integrates information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance fundamental understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research practice. In other words, rather than working independently, with interdisciplinary research disciplines interact and work collaboratively.
Interdisciplinary research relies on shared knowledge. When this happens, a fundamental shift can take place over time and a new interdisciplinary field emerges. For example, biochemistry, nanoscience, and neuroscience all emerged as interdisciplinary fields that eventually grew to become their own disciplines.
With a meticulously designed research objectives, highly efficient and dedicated team of professionals and subject expert members and state-of-the-art infrastructure, CMDSR serves as a knowledge-hub in creating socially , technically & economically sound pragmatic solutions for today’s challenges.
CMDSR emerges to be a well established sophisticated research facility at Centre for excellence building, CEG campus. CMDSR aspires for excellence in research and education to compensate with scarcity of skilled and expertise manpower in the existing conventional Systems domain. It is our pride endeavour to provide the most modern research in a competent learning environment. The centre has widened its skyline in the recent years by collaborating with institutions across the globe; from the perspectives of both research and education. The centre is being receiving strong support from government organizations like Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA), Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC), Greater Chennai Police Commissioner office (GCPC) , Inspector General of Police (IGP), Transport Commissioner Office (TC) , Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUDCO) as well as from many industrial sectors and society to name a few Bharath Semi conductor Society (BSS), India Piston , AI & ICT /IoT etc.,) and other academia like Madras University, IIT Bhubaneswar, NIT Odissa etc. With the mounting technology and expertise among the young researchers and students, we are sure to achieve much more.
To potential scholars, we would like to encourage you to explore the various opportunities to learn more about the prospectus of becoming a ‘System Scientist or System Technologist’ in a Multi – Disciplinary domain at CMDSR.
To colleagues from the systems research and related industries and organizations, we invite you to find out more about the diverse research interests and expertise of our faculty members that cover almost all major fields of the systems science and technology discipline. You are invited to discuss with us any collaboration opportunities.
Good teaching learning processes, exposure to modern technology, interactive approach of learning and campus discipline are hallmarks of professional education. Industrial sector looks not only at the academic excellence achieved by the students but also professional personality, communication skills and easy adaptability to a given situation in a smart manner.
I extend a very warm welcome to all students and research scholars who wish to join in our centre. We at CMDSR will work together and hope that you will be fully equipped with theoretical knowledge, creative practical skills and innovative practices to achieve success in life.
