The Centre for Advanced Studies in Electronics Science and Technology (CASEST) was established in 2014. It is a successor of the Electronics Programme established at the School of Physics in 1995 at the initiative of University Grants Commission and the (then) Department of Electronics to promote research and teaching in electronic device research. The teaching programmes are reviewed every 5 years and have evolved from M.Sc. (electronics) (2-year programme) to M.Sc. (Tech.) (3-year programme) to the present 2-year M.Tech. programme in Integrated Circuit Technology. Research grade facilities have been established by the faculty for high quality R&D activities in Electronics Science. The M.Tech. (Integrated Circuit Technology) and the Ph.D. (Electronics Science) programme were begun in 2004. They have provision for short and long term projects and are described later in brochure.
The Centre has Research Interests in Design, Simulation, Fabrication and Testing of Digital and RF circuits, Functional Materials and Processes.
