Centre for Advanced Research on Technology – (CART)
Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering was desirous of establishing a school of Indigenous science and technology and having identified Samskriti Foundation and VAAK as an ideal partner who can complement them with the inputs in terms of their knowledge and rich experience, have come together to establish a research centre at SVCE, Yelahanka, Bangalore. This research centre, known as Centre for Advanced Research on Technology (CART) is perhaps the first research organization established by an educational institution that will be conducting research based on ancient Indian knowledge systems. This arrangement will benefit both the organizations.

As a well-established educational institution conducting courses in Engineering, SVCE will be establishing a research facility in its institution and will be the pioneer among educational institutions to take up research in the area of ancient Indian knowledge systems on science and technology. It will also be able to offer post graduate courses and research facility in this area to its students. VAAK which is a unit of Samskriti Foundation established to generate a greater interest in the science & technology prevalent in the ancient period will get an academic base and a good infrastructure which will allow it to undertake research work on the ancient science and technology and get the findings in them validated and adapted into the modern technology systems. Thus, the arrangement will provide opportunities for both the organizations to grow and pursue their objectives.
