Department of Computer Science and Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established in 2008 with the objective of offering world-class education and cutting-edge research opportunities to its students.

On the educational front, the curriculum is designed with a motive to prepare students to be industrial and academic leaders who can apply computer science principles across a wide variety of fields. In addition to fundamental courses, specialized elective courses such as Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and High Performance Computing are offered to keep pace with emerging technologies and trends.

On the research front, our outstanding faculty and students are exploring a wide range of innovative ideas in areas of Real-time Systems, Theoretical Robotics, Approximation Algorithms, Bioinformatics, Large Scale Optimization, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition.

Department of Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering, since its inception in the year 2008, has been nurturing the talent of globally competitive engineering students with benchmark domain expertise and all-round finesse. Research areas in the department include Biomedical Signal Processing, Photonics and Optical Communication, Wide Area Monitoring and Control Systems, Low-power Mixed Signal Circuit and Device Designs, Novel Device Structures, and Power and Energy Systems: Planning, Economics, Operation, and Control.

The undergraduate program provides the students with a strong background in the four broad avenues of electrical engineering, namely, Communication Technology, Control Technology, Electronics, Power and Energy. A strong exposure to state-of-the-art technologies is further provided through electives that are carefully designed for students. The undergraduate students have sound exposure to Optical Communication, Instrumentation and Medical Electronics, Digital.

School of Mechanical, Materials & Energy Engineering (SMMEE)

The School of Mechanical, Materials and Energy Engineering was established in 2008 as the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Equipped with wellstructured instruction and learning resources and research facilities, the school aims to disseminate knowledge in the inter-disciplinary areas of mechanical, materials and energy engineering.

The progressive curriculum places emphasis on global concerns such as energy efficiency, non-renewable resource management, and pollution prevention and control. Ongoing research in the fields of Materials Processing, Smart Materials & Structures, Surface Engineering, Heat Transfer, Sustainable Design and Manufacturing, Robotics, Biomechanics and Renewable Energy, will help cater to the growing demand of constant innovation and development in the industrial sector.

Sciences and Humanities

Since engineering study demands knowledge of various sciences, students, as a part of the undergraduate program, are required to undergo certain foundational courses from other departments such as the Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Humanities & Social Sciences Departments. A course structure which integrates science and humanities courses with core engineering courses and the availability of program electives provide students the experience of making choices and becoming responsible towards their academic program.


The institute, apart from establishing a robust teaching environment, facilitates and supports cutting-edge research in a wide variety of areas.

The faculty selection procedure places a strong emphasis on candidates’ research record and future research potential. Most of the faculty members at the institute have acquired years of research experience in world-class institutions across the globe. The institute facilitates research program establishment through provision of competitive seed grants to new faculty members.

Apart from PhD students, who are actively involved in full-time research, undergraduate students are offered an opportunity and are encouraged to participate in ongoing research projects.

The undergraduate students also work on their major B.Tech.projects in the final year of their study, which involves solving current industrial and research oriented problems.
