Centre of Excellence for
Smart Devices and IoT Applications

The internet of things (IoT) involves the collection, analysis, and action of data created by networked items and equipment. The Internet, which was originally created to connect people, is now connecting items to people and gathering, analysing, and transmitting data on a continuous basis. Humans are developing a sixth sense in this regard. Sensors, networks, storage, and big data analytics are all important factors in IoT adoption.

Smart devices, which feature sensors, sophisticated computer units, and communication capabilities, are an essential component of the Internet of Things. Data from sensors is electronically turned into information (output) that can be used by ‘intelligent’ equipment or persons to make decisions. The data must be evaluated in order to gain insight into how “things” work. Big-data solutions that have been developed in recent years can manage substantially more data, both structured and unstructured.

The established CoE’s mission is to enable universities to serve as an innovation hubs in the burgeoning technology of the Internet of Things by democratising innovation, standardisation, and prototype realisation.

The CoE supports the University’s strategic strategy,
“Transforming Education, Transforming India.

Center of Excellence for Energy and Eco-sustainability Research (CEER)

The Center of Excellence for Energy and Eco-sustainability Research” (CEER) will conduct research, PG programmes, skilled base certificate training programmes consultancies in the areas of clean/renewable energy, green & sustainable buildings and energy efficiency. Center will focus on innovative, transdisciplinary and society/industry required programmes with a focus on emerging technologies.

Renewable And Clean Energy

In the 20th century, fossil fuels were the fuels of choice. During first two decades of 21st century, transition was from fossil fuels to renewable energy. This transition will require an intensive effort for human resource development in the area of renewable power sector. Deep knowledge and skills are required to address the challenges of energy resources, management and sustainable development.

Pledge made during COP 26 at Glasgow re-affirm the commitments of various governments to reduce carbon emissions globally with a motto to act locally and think globally. India is the third largest renewable energy producer and it aims to reach net zero emissions by 2070. Further, India has targeted 500 GW of renewable power which means that the annual capacity addition 0f 40-50 GW. Due to a very high potential growing field, there is a world-wide need of skilled manpower for projects, technology and policy.

According to the Central Electricity Authority, by 2030, India’s power requirements will be more than 800 GW and more than half to be met from renewable and clean energy sources.

Energy Efficiency
