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 : Discipline of Electrical Engineering

The quality of power supply in India is basically deteriorating due to widening gap between demand and supply, inadequate transmission and distribution system and diversity in loads. The successful integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) meet the load demand but at the same time increases the severity of power quality (PQ) problems associated with injection of harmonics and interharmonics in power system. The harmonics in power system may lead to many harmful effects including signal interference, circuit breaker failure, equipment overheating malfunctioning of protection and control circuits, etc. Therefore, as a requirement of smart electricity transmission and distribution system, accurate detection, estimation and monitoring of harmonics are very important. Our work proposes one such new model based on Undecimated Wavelet Packet Transform (UWPT) for accurate estimation of harmonics and implemented it on FPGA hardware platform for real-time applications.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS : Discipline of Physics

The search for the new materials for various electronic applications have dominated the research worldwide particularly after the development of silicon based tiny integrated circuits and BaTiO 3 based tiny capacitors. Very small as well as energy efficient electronic devices are replacing the conventional electronic circuit elements. While using these materials for dielectric application it is important to know the possible origin of dielectric loss and also crystallographic structure of these in greater details. The systematic studies involving, high resolution diffraction, Raman and optical absorption have been carried out.
