Research Support

Many different internal and external opportunities for research grants are available for the faculty in the department. Internal start-up grants are available to all new faculty. Recently, the Dean’s Office also provides research grants based on annual research output. Strategic Research Grant (SRG) from the university has also been an important source of financial support from which the faculty has benefited. In addition, our faculty members have been very successful in obtaining external competitive research grants such as the General Research Fund (GRF) and the Early Career Scheme (ECS).
