Institution Innovation Council (IIC) an Initiative of MHRD for selected Higher Education Institutes


Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India has established ‘MHRD’s Innovation Cell (MIC)’ to systematically foster the culture of Innovation amongst all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The primary mandate of MIC is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them into prototypes while they are in formative years.
MIC has envisioned encouraging creation of ‘Institution’s Innovation Council (IICs)’ across selected HEIs. A network of these IICs will be established to promote innovation in the Institution through multitudinous modes leading to an innovation promotion eco-system in the campuses. 

We proudly announce that RPS College of Engineering also has established Institutions Innovation Cell as per the norms of Innovation Cell, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India during IIC calender year 2020-2021.
