Research & Development

IIT Indore envisages the process of convergence of traditional disciplines as the key to accomplish the previously unimaginable. With this foresight, IIT Indore has been promoting multi-disciplinary research programme, focusing on basic and applied research, technology development and innovation. It is this vision that has helped the institute to do very well in all spheres of science, engineering and humanities and social sciences.


A core competency of IIT Indore is research driven academic programme as it forms a core component of the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. At IIT Indore, we have consciously promulgated the idea of involving undergraduate students in forefront research projects. This led to the initiation of a formal undergraduate research scheme entitled, "Promotion of Research and Innovation for Undergraduate Students".

Latest @ R and D

Research at IIT Indore has been recognized at international level with active participation in several key international projects and several joint collaborations with research organizations in Japan, South Korea, Russian Federation, Portugal, France, Germany, USA, and many other countries. The institute has been successful in securing 82 externally sponsored research projects worth over Rs. 22 Crores.


IIT Indore recognizes that encouraging entrepreneurship for technology development, economic and social stability is need of the hour. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) at IIT Indore was started with the same vision. IIT Indore students are in the process of having their own start-ups thus applying innovation into practicality for the benefit of all. In the coming years, IIT Indore will develop into a world class centre for higher academic and industrial research and innovation.


Signal Propagation and Schematic Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication (DMC) System.

WiCom serves as a platform for researchers of IIT Indore to contribute their research in all areas of communications with particular emphasis on techniques related to 5G wireless networks and beyond. Specifically, we focus on bidirectional relaying, cognitive radio, D2D communications, MIMO techniques, satellite communications, and molecular communications. The bidirectional relaying can significantly improve the performance of wireless networks in terms of coverage and spectrum efficiency for multipath fading scenario. Based on this, our recent works have introduced several implementation aspects of two-phase and three-phase bidirectional relaying protocols. Further, cognitive radio has been introduced as a promising candidate for increasing spectral efficiency, reliability, and coverage of wireless systems.

Theoretical and Experimental Study on Heat Transfer Characteristics of Normally Impinging Two Dimensional Jets on a Hot Surface

Impinging air jets have been used in various industrial applications including the drying of paper, cooling of gas turbine blades and cooling of electronic components. Here, an attempt has been made to propose a theoretical model to predict the heat transfer characteristics of two dimensional impinging jets on a hot surface. Energy integral method is used to obtain the solution. Based on the analysis a generalized expression for Nusselt number is obtained involving various parameters such as: nozzle to plate distance, Prandtl number, Reynolds number and modeling parameter k. Tests have been carried out by using a two dimensional nozzle with length to diameter ratio of 70.
