Centre for Industrial Electronics & Robotics

banner

The Center of Industrial and Electronics and Robotics has been established in 2008. The center is hosted by Electrical Engineering Department, and Electrical, Mechanical, Electronics and Communication Engineering and Mathematics are participating Departments. The center serves as a platform for collaborative research and knowledge sharing activities among the different research groups scattered over several major departments facilitating faster developments, nurturing new ideas and supporting each other in coercive manner. The faculty members of the Center has been successful in securing research funds from several agencies such as DRDO, CDAC, CSIR, MHRD, CPRI, MNRE, DST, DST-UKIERI, NRB for conducting high end research projects. The Department is also active in collaborating research with Intelligent Research Centre, University of Saskatchewan, Canada.
