Independent research in laboratories, field study and participation in writing workshops are normal elements of the DEC experience.

The department provides an atmosphere conducive to creative work and research undertakings at all levels, to exploring the accumulated knowledge of humanity, and to developing new knowledge through research.[br]

they are expected to present the first phase of the work and the remaining part of the project should be completed in the final semester (10th semester) with full document of work done..
