    Pros

    Innovative research.
    Competitive Environment.
    Resourceful campus.
    Great people

    Cons

    There was need to have small organization who can motivate intern/student from other institution to be an integral part of ongoing research after study. There were may research position and funding to hire research and project associate but due less motivation and complete awareness many people left.

    Advice to Management

    Create a web-portal and organization to hold the student who loves science and engineering and those want to be the part of great institution.
