INTRODUCTION
Anna University established in 4th Sep 1978 imparts higher education in
Science & Technology, promotes research & fosters co-operation
between academic and industrial communities
Presently 625 Engineering Colleges are functioning under Anna
University - 4 constituent colleges with University Departments, 13

output/scientific productivity of the faculty of Anna University over more
than two decades (1989-2012)

To enhance the visibility of the productivity profile of Anna University


Chennai

To facilitate online and open access to the research publications of Anna


University Chennai

METHODOLOGY
