Centre of Excellence in Machine Vision (CEMV): A TIFAC CORE LAB
Click here to know details about CEMV
The machine vision activity is targeted towards developing image processing solutions to enhance Industrial productivity through objective quality measures. Machine Vision systems enable automated end-of-line inspection and quality control in manufacturing plants.
The machine vision activity was started through seed funding under the DST TIFAC-CORE scheme. Several industrial inspection systems are currently operational using technology and solutions developed through this activity.
This center is currently headed by Dr. Sundar, who has wide experience in both academics and Industry.
Centre of Excellence in MEMS & Microfluidics (CEMM)

The MEMS activity with emphasis on micro-fluidic lab-on-chip systems is aimed at research towards development of low-cost measurement and diagnostic solutions for bio-medical and allied applications.
The college is recognized as one of the National MEMS Development Centers (NMDC) supported through the national NPMASS program.
Several MEMS devices such as Micro Tweezers, Accelerometer and Gyroscope have been designed and successfully implemented through the community chip fabrication program under NPMASS.
The Centre is headed by Dr. L. Sujatha, who has several research scholars currently pursuing their doctoral research program under her guidance. This center now has the distinction of having an active DST-TSDP government sponsored project valued at ₹1.24Crores for research and development in processes for low-cost Micro-Fluidic device development.
Facilities at this center include specialized thin-film deposition equipment, photo-lithography, high resolution Digital Microscope, measuring equipment, De-Ionized Water Plant and accessories for in-house research and development in MEMS and Micro-Fluidics.
Recently, the infrastructure for this center has been augmented through internal funds to establish state-of-the-art Class-10000/Class-1000 clean-rooms facilitating world-class research.
