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.


Novel in synthesizing spherical nanoparticles through Laser micro-grooving on the rotating target of NiTi using Underwater Solid State Nd: YAG Laser Ablation Technique

Nanomaterials have become increasingly popular, promising a breakthrough in the development of novel methods in bio-sensing, medical diagnostics, surface plasmonics (photo-voltaics applications), therapeutics, cosmetics coatings, etc. under water Laser assisted ablation can offer novel opportunities to solve the toxicity problem caused by contamination with chemical precursors or additives in chemical synthesis procedures. However, the mechanism of nanoparticles formation is still not well understood and challenges remain in size control and productivity.
