MGM's Innovation, Incubation & Research Centre (IIRC), first of its kind in Maharashtra State. It is developed to inculcate knowledge and skills to meet the demands of Design & Manufacturing, E-vehicle, Automobile, Robotics and Automation industries. In pursuit of Excellence as a part of JNEC’s Industry-Academia Initiative, IIRC has been established by MGM University to promote research, technical skills which are significant for students’ development, and provide consultancy services to nearby industries & tool rooms.
MGM University has come up with the unique state of art infrastructure to meet the demands of all types of Industries. IIRC is an outcome of visionary inspiration of MGM Management. It was developed in two stages: Phase-I, which includes Robotics, Mechatronics, Industrial Automation and Computer Integrated Manufacturing which was inaugurated by the auspicious hands of Padmashree Hon. Sharadchandraji Pawar on 20th December 2019, Phase-II comprises of Industry 4.0, Electric Vehicle, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (DRONE), Additive manufacturing & Reverse Engineering inaugurated by Hon. Shri. Nitinji Gadkari on the occasion of 38th foundation day of Mahatma Gandhi Mission on 20th December 2020. To be convergent with the technologies introduced in IIRC, a team (13 Nos.) of interdisciplinary faculty member’s undergone rigorous trainings in Rheine, Germany in June 2019. Electric Vehicle, ADAS, DRONE, have been introduced for the first time in India in association with MSC Hexagon (USA), SSIGMA (India) and CSTT (Germany).
IIRC has been working in association with nearby MSME’s in development of various projects with involvement of university students like CNC Retrofitting, Mechatronics Manufacturing Factory Set-Up, Medical Emergency Drone, Other Manufacturing machines & working prototypes, Automation of Shearing machines, etc. To promote such activities on a larger scale IIRC seeks MSME incubation centre to incubate aspirant entrepreneurs from rural as well as urban background. IIRC comprises of industry sponsored labs such as Endress +Hauser Process Instrumentation and BMW.
As a social responsibility during COVID-19 pandemic situation, MGM University has contributed through the design & development of Face Shields, Swab Collection Tube Tray, C-Type Shield Structures for Medical Surgeries, Ventilator. In this regard, IIRC would like to mention here that more than 1.5 Lakhs of Face Shields been supplied in the state of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Gujrat in association with our alumni entrepreneurs.
Currently we are working on Electric Vehicle area such as axial flux motor, Battery Management System (BMS), Lithium Battery pack manufacturing system, ICE to EV conversion kits and Design & development of drones for agricultural application, fire fighting Drones etc.
