RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT (R & D)

Introduction to Research

Research is the systematic investigation process employed to increase or revise current knowledge by discovering new facts. The research will be done in two general categories: basic research is inquired to aim at increasing scientific knowledge and applied research is aimed at using basic research for solving problems or developing new processes, products or techniques.

Need for research

Research is essential for students, academics and for all professionals. It is also important for budding and veteran writers, both offline and online. Among professionals and scribes, finding an interesting topic to discuss and to write about should go beyond personal experience. Determining either what the general public may want to know about or what researchers want others to realize or to think about can serve as a reason to do research. R & D is also mandatory to support a country’s economy. Research helps people to nurture their potential and achieve their goals through various opportunities. Hence, DMISJBU research can be in the form of securing employment, scholarships, training grants, project funding, business collaboration, collaborative research with other universities, organizing conferences and seminar and thus enhance the society of Malawi in research.
