From the beginning it was decided that teaching and research should go hand in hand. Besides, very soon after the School started functioning, requests started coming for undertaking research for different agencies as well as collaborative research with other academic institutions. At the same time, the faculty were encouraged to publish their own research findings in well-known journals. Thus, research has become an important part of the academic work of MSE.
