Technology Innovation Centre
The Technology Innovation Centre was conceived to be a complimentary activity to the Practice School, where problems of industry can be investigated on the campus through the involvement of professionals from industry, BITS students and faculty. This Centre provides for engineer/scientist of industry to spend a desired period of time at the campus. Investigations can be made on problems brought from industry by the engineer/scientist himself or those identified by a team consisting of the engineer, BITS students and faculty. A number of industries have responded very favorably to this concept and are actively participating. The students do these projects either for the “Thesis” course or for the course entitled "TIC Project". The investigations are being done at the campus under the direct supervision of engineers from industry who have access to all BITS facilities. The Technology Innovation Centre also received in past fund support from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, for further strengthening of this activity.
Useful contributions have been made to the developmental needs of technology generation for the companies. Many products for which the technology is generated through this process are commercialized by the industries.
