The Institute offers this unique centre for cultivating innovative ideas in students and helping them carry out research in frontier areas under the guidance of an internationally acclaimed scientist and educationalist Professor B. N. Biswas, whom the Institute boasts to have amidst its students and teachers round the clock as Emeritus Professor of Electronics and Communication Engineering Department, on one hand, and as the Chairman of the Education Division of SKFGI, and, above all, as the overall Mentor of SKFGI, on the other. The research carried out jointly by the students and teachers of the Institute have earned recognition through publications in journals, presentation at conferences, and students’ paper and innovative design contests.
During the span of only a couple of years of its existence, the Centre has to its credit a very large number of research papers published in peer-reviewed reputed journals. Recently, the Centre has sponsored the visit of four final year students to CSIR-CEERI for collaborative linkage in the area of vacuum and plasma electron devices (microwave and millimetre-wave tubes), nanotechnology, and electronic instrumentation; they were also trained in electromagnetic, thermal and structural simulations. The first ever national level technology exhibition TechCraze-2013 originated from this Centre and has been successfully followed by the subsequent years.
