Science students of senior secondary schools from Delhi and Delhi NCR region participated in large number in the Camp. The program - INSPIRE was sponsored and initiated by the Department of Science and Technology. INSPIRE aims to update students studying Science in 11th and 12th standard about the new challenges in science and technology. Also, the objective is to prepare the younger scientific generation for the country to strengthen the capacity building of the nation. Eminent Professors and scientists from Delhi University, Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT), National Institute of Immunology (NII), and Sharda University delivered lectures and interacted with the students and teachers. Students were also introduced to the experimental facilities in our Science Departments and they were apprised and given hands on training in the Physics and Electronics lab.
Students and faculty members from Rajdhani College helped a lot to make the INSPIRE program a big success. Completion certificates were given to the participants on 6th Feb 2016. Faculty members Dr. Amit Jain, Dr. Vishal Mishra, Dr. Sashwati Sarkar, Dr. Vinay Kumar, Dr. Vivek Panwar, Dr. Anju Gupta, Dr. Sonia Lumb, Mr. Manohar Singh, Mr. Ram Naresh Meena, Mr. Naresh Verma, Mr. Nitin Kumar, Dr. Shanti Singh, Dr. Jisha, Ms. Chanchal Yadav, Dr. Abhishek Kumar Singh, Mr. Abhinandan, Dr Shikha Madan, and Rimpal Dabas and many other colleagues including lab staff contributed a lot for this program.

Two-Day ICSSR Sponsored National Seminar on “Rethinking Assertive Politics in Contemporary Bihar: Caste, Development and Governance” was organized in the college on 20th-21st March 2015 under convenorship of Dr. Nawal Kishore, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science. The seminar brought together various academicians, grassroots campaigners, media persons and policy-makers to engage in critical discussions on different concerns of caste, development and governance. Keeping in view of the experience of one state i.e. Bihar in the recent decades, this seminar discussed on these contemporary issues in national perspective. The seminar focused on a number of issues including the changing structure of caste and class relations and their importance on rural transformation of the economy on the one hand and how this, in turn, has been shaped by the overall policy of the various governance structures on the other. The objective of this academic exercise is to bring out a report on the working history of assertive politics in the contemporary Bihar and its interconnecting implications for overall development and governance in Indian context.
Rajdhani College took the initiative in promoting research activities of our college to an international level. Rajdhani College in collaboration with University of Tokyo, Japan. Organized an international conference on “Remote sensing of Earth's Atmosphere” which was held in University of Delhi on 5 September 2014. International conference was organized keeping in view the knowledge level of undergraduates students. The talks were presented by Professors, Scientists and research scholars from Japan as well as all over India. The talks were based on climate changes which generated curiosity and interest among students to pursue research in this area. They also got an idea about how to apply for different research activities in India as well as foreign countries.
As a step forward in this direction a MoU has also been signed between Rajdhani College and University of Tokyo, Japan. Besides Tokyo University, other universities and institutes are also collaborating in this MoU viz. Nagoya University, Women's Nara University, NIES (National Institute of Environmental studies).Under this MoU, our faculty will be able to visit University of Tokyo, Japan and vice-versa. This MoU will also help students and faculty of both the nation to exchange their ideas, research work and culture to a great extent. As a further extension of research activities being planned under this MoU, an instrument is also installed at badouli, Sonepat (Haryana) which would provide information about the emission levels of methane gas in rice paddy fields of India. This data would help in enhancing our understanding about the role of methane as a contributing factor towards global warming. The success of International conference and signing of MoU was possible only due to the great insight and vision of Dr. S.K. Dhaka and complete support of Dr. Vijay Laxmi Pandit Principal Rajdhani College. 22 Instrument placed at the site with the pictures of Japanese installing them.
College administration was kind enough in helping the laboratory to get state of art equipment with latest technologies. To name a few: NI ELVIS, a product of National Instruments USA which takes students from discovering engineering theory to practical hands-on-experience with industry relevant technology. NI myRIO, another product of National Instruments is an embedded hardware device that introduces students to industry proven technology and allows them to design real, complex engineering systems more quickly and affordable than ever before. A Multipurpose Lab Station (MPLS) a product of KEYSIGHT Technology (AGILAENT) offers a complete curriculum based solution that addresses the educator’s requirements. Beside these lab is equipped with 2 HI- Tech Personal Computers, a HPLASER JET 1020 PLUS printer, a HP COLOR LASER JET PRO MFP M476dw printer, function generator, dc power supply, Bosch tool kit, soldering station and a Digital Storage Oscilloscope. Following students are involved in the Research Work: Satyam Jain, Vikash, Nitin Kumar, Akhilesh Kumar, Jitendra Singh, Mohit Kumar, Himanshu Srivastava, Prince Singh, Anand PM, Mohit Rawat, Sheetal Yadav, Dheeraj Tiwari, Saurav, YogishAtri and Aindrila Sinha.
