ACMDR has organized national and international every year.  Presently the vaccine development, diagnosis of mycobacterial diseases and Molecular genetics are the areas of interest in ACMDR.

Amity Center for Positivism & Happiness” (ACPH)

Setting Amity Center for Positivism

  • The Amity Center for Positivism (ACP) was established with effect from 12th November 2014 and renamed as Amity Center for Positivism and Happiness (ACPH).
  • Since happiness or satisfaction in life or well being is a major concern of developing positivity in life, the center’s name is justified renaming as “Amity Center for Positivism and Happiness” w.e.f. October 13, 2017.

It aims at fulfilling the following objectives:

  • To promote awareness of Positivism and Happiness through Key-note addresses by thinkers of eminence from reputed organization like The Art of Living, Ramkrishna Mission, Chinmay Mission, Vipassana Centers etc.
  • To initiate the action plan for providing training in developing positivism through workshops, symposiums, seminars, conferences etc.

  • To introduce papers of positivism and positive psychology at Graduate and Post – Graduate levels.
  • To start human value and virtue based courses.
  • Initiate Human Value based Activities in subjects (i.e. Care Centers, NGOs, geriatric populations, disabled & street children and persons of deprived class etc.) to improve their quality of life and sense of satisfaction.
  • Submitting projects in the areas of Positivism and Positive Psychology to different funding agencies including ICMR, ICSSR, DST, Indian Council of Philosophical Researches etc. and introducing Ph.D. programme in the field of Positivism.

Amity Centre for Converging Technologies and Science (ACCTS)

Converging Technologies is a transdisciplinary programme catering to the need of developing such world class graduates who understands multiple fields in depth and one who can intelligently work to integrate them for a common goal which may be to solve a particular problem or to innovate and improvise the existing tools or to develop altogether new products or to address fundamental scientific issues such as functioning of the life itself or how the human brain functions and how do we develop cognition or what is consciousness and many such questions which an expert of any particular field faces everyday but finds no clues or have deficiency due to lack of knowledge of other fields although solutions might come from other branches of science and technology provided one has some ‘in depth’ knowledge of the later.

This knowledge in some depth in a single individual through education with converging technologies and converging sciences approach can broaden his performance through intelligent integration of knowledge so that an individual or group of such individuals could think differently and ‘out of box’ for problem solving, product development, scientific advancement, innovation and paradigm shift in the scientific world that we live in today at a much faster pace which may result into new opportunities and creation of new challenges for faster economic development, poverty alleviation and improvement in the quality of life, health and better environment. Converging Technologies programmes at Amity is taking care of producing such graduates.

Amity Centre for Ocean-Atmospheric Science and Technology (AMITY COAST)

Centre for Ocean-Atmospheric Science and Technology (COAST) established in 2015 at Amity University Rajasthan (AUR) is first of its kind in the state of Rajasthan to promote interdisciplinary research on numerical modeling of ocean & atmosphere state, monsoon studies, climate modeling, extreme weather as well as academic programs at postgraduate and doctoral levels. Two-year M. Sc. course is offered in Atmospheric and Environmental Science.

The Centre contributes to the understanding of the processes involved in the occurrences of hydro-meteorological hazards through observational and modeling studies. Observational studies are carried out using in-house instruments and remotely sensed satellite data. Computational work involves numerical modeling using regional and global climate models. 

Environmental Monitoring Facility (EMF) has been established at Amity COAST in collaboration with the India Meteorological Department (IMD), New Delhi. Facility is equipped with Sky Radiometer, which is used to measure scattered solar radiation at multiple wavelengths for the estimation of aerosol properties & Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD). Another instrument installed is Aethalometer: to measure the concentration of optically absorbing ('black') suspended particulates in a gas colloid stream; commonly visualized as smoke or haze, often seen in ambient air under polluted conditions

Amity Interdisciplinary Centre for Climate Research and Policy(ICCRP)

The climate change issue in India presents a very challenging dimension in terms of its unique climate variability both spatial and temporal. This problem is no more limited to earth science only. A-ICCRP virtual Centre was established in Amity COAST to facilitate interdisciplinary research amongst the areas of science, engineering and humanities.

ICCRP - Some Broad Objectives And Salient Features

The broad objectives of the proposed ICCRP may include:

  • Undertake advanced research in the area of climate science through an interdisciplinary approach;
  • Running and developing weather, climate and crop-weathermodels,
  • Studying climate change science, adaptation and mitigation
  • CC relation with biophysical and human systems andimpacts on socio-economic sectors like agriculture, water, human health, etc;
  • Undertaking policy research for developing strategies especially in the context of current projected climate change.
  • Undertake research in the area of disaster risk reduction for the State of Rajasthan
  • Any other areas of climate research not covered above  

Yunus Social Business Centre (YSBC) - Amity University Rajasthan

Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Child Labour Education for Rural Development

The Yunus Social Business Centre, Amity University Rajasthan has the aim to make participants/rural people conscious of social problems in their community and to showcase social businesses in the area. The programs enable networking opportunities to link up people from the private sector, public sector, academics, and civil society to collaborate in developing pro-poor technologies through child education and enterprise development in rural areas.

The centre will achieve objectives through the following actions:

  • Studies to identify entrepreneurial capacity and child labour problems in rural areas.
  • Workshop/Training programmes for enhancing capacity of existing microenterprises in rural areas.
  • Consultancies for start-up in rural areas.
  • Training programmes on financial literacy for Self-Help Groups in collaboration with MFI, NGO, JLG and other facilitators of SHG-Bank Linkage Programme and NRLM.
  • Students visit in rural areas to get exposure of social business.
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of social business.
