The centre for Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research (IC&SR) was set up in the early seventies to promote interaction between the Industry and the Institute. Today, the centre for IC&SR is an independent section of the Institute, headed by a Dean. Over the years, this centre has played a vital role in bringing together the people from the Industry and the faculty of the Institute resulting in important contributions to design and development in the country.

The centre for IC&SR facilitates, coordinates and administers Sponsored and Consultancy projects. To know more about IC & SR visit our website at
