Research is for the elite. The furtherance of technology and its contribution to the society are the key ingredients and basis for research. Innovative thought, proficiency in the subject and intellectual capability are the qualities one expects from a researcher. A binding of such capabilities in some individual at GRIET has brought excessive success in research.

The research at GRIET started with getting funding from AICTE worth Rs. 7 lakhs for the Flow Forming project. Due to the combined effort of researchers and some money supplied by the management, a dedicated Metal Forming Research lab was established. Further enhancement in the facilities for this lab was carried out by the funding provided by DST and several schemes of AICTE. This particular lab houses approximately 1.5 crore equipment and published more than 50 papers by various researchers in high impact factor international journals and conferences . The state-of-art facilities developed in the laboratory are Warm Sheet Metal Forming of various materials, high temperature testing of materials using UTM, simulation capabilities and development of Bio-composite materials using Bio-resources.
