Research Management Centre (RMC)  is the research arm of the university.  Formerly known as Research Management Institute (RMI), it was created to manage research, consultancy, intellectual property protection and commercialisation.  In April 2015, RMI was renamed  Institute of Research Management & Innovation (IRMI).  Its duties are extended to initiate new research and innovation activities. IRMI has five divisions which are responsible to manage, monitor and assist in grant applications.  The divisions are Research, Consultancy, Innovation, Publication, and ICT Support.

In particular, IRMI conducts seminars, workshops and roadshows to encourage and train the academics and non-academic staff on research and consultancy, securing research grants and projects, managing their finances and publishing research work.  It also handles the university’s Research Ethics Committee.   In the same vein, IRMI organises expositions of innovations and research to encourage innovations and inventions within the university’s environment.
