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".

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.


Research Highlights from Dr. Tanveer’s OPTIMAL Research Group

The OPTIMAL research group focusses on early detection of Alzheimer’s disease using machine learning techniques. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of cognitive disability and dementia. It is a major public health problem, with 35 million people affected today. This number is expected to reach 115 million cases in 2050. The cost of care is evaluated to approximately USD 600 billion worldwide. Early and accurate diagnosis of AD is crucial in order to enhance care for patients and for the development of new treatments. However, AD is currently under-diagnosed and most patients have not received a precise diagnosis.

Research Highlights from Discipline of Electrical Engineering

Wireless communication is one of the most successful technologies shaping our daily lives. Since the invention of wireless communication systems, it has become an essential part of our daily life. Apart from text and voice communication services, today with the evolution and development of technology, it is being used for several other applications such as online gaming, video conferencing, online TV and many more. These modern applications require a large amount of data traffic over wireless channel. Moreover, the number of wireless users has also increased enormously over the past decade. The fast growing data needs within limited resources motivated researchers to develop new technologies for future generation (5G) wireless systems.
