Innovation Project Lab

The Department has a unique facility for research/projects on Optics, Photonics, Robotics and Embedded Systems. UG students working under ELITE, Innovative Projects, e-Yantra and SPIE avail the advanced facilities of this lab. InnoV8- The Embedded System and Robotics Lab was set up in 2014, under e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI) of IIT Bombay, also a part of this multi-faceted lab.

Material Science Research Lab

It is a state-of-the-art facility for contemporary research for developing gas sensors, new materials for the efficient harnessing of solar energy and water purification membranes, where Ph.D. as well as UG students pursuing their dissertation carry out their research work.

Summer Training

Though not part of their curriculum, motivated by the various research activities, students have been regularly attending summer training in the research laboratories within and outside the college. The summer fellowship scheme of the college, ELITE, provides the right platform for the students for introspection and recognize their potential in research or any other field. They can work on any idea under a teacher mentor. They are also paid a stipend of Rs. 2000/- during the two month long fellowship during the summer break. The following table gives a summary of the projects done at the Department under ELITE during the last six years:

S.No. Year No. of Students trained No. of Projects
1. 2019 >20 10
2. 2018 >15 7
3. 2014-2017 >50 7

Research Platform for Students

The Department of Electronics works synchronously with one of the visions of the college, bringing research into the classroom. Active participation of students in research projects is promoted and one can see the UG students working in the research laboratories at all times. Due to active participation and timely tapping of the research potential of the undergraduate students, a number of research papers have been co-authored by the undergraduate students as well.

Due to the active involvement of the faculty members in research, the Department has got many extra-mural projects. The research project grants help in the development of state-of-the-art laboratories to perform cutting edge scientific research and provide recurring funds to carry out day to day research activities. This helps in the active involvement of the faculty in research at all times. Further, the college provides research contingency grant to each research laboratory to meet some of the recurring expenditures. A summary of the research projects carried out in the last few years is as under:


Type of Project (Funding Agency) No. of Projects
UGC funded Project 01
Delhi University funded Innovation Projects 06
DST funded Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) Projects 04
Projects under ‘DBT STAR COLLEGE’ Scheme 05
ELITE Summer Projects 05


S.No. Project Title No. of students involved
1. Plant electro stimulation and data acquisition 10 (5 from Electronics and 5 from Botany)
2. Assistive Gadgets for Visually Impaired Students 2
3. Mine Detection Drone 2
4. Development of nanostructured thin films 10 (5 Electronics and 5 Physics)
5. Paradigm shift in material science-2D materials: familiarity, synthesis and application 5 Students(5 Electronics)

Ph.D. Research Scholars

In recognition of the potential of the faculty members of the Electronics department to conduct independent research and for having the required research facilities, two teachers have been recognized as Ph.D. supervisors by the University of Delhi. Currently, six research scholars are carrying out doctoral programmes in the college.
