Sophisticated Instrumentation Centre (SIC)

A National Facility - Indian Institute of Technology Indore

The Sophisticated Instrumentation Center (SIC) — A National Facility was established in September 2011 to expedite the research program at IIT Indore. It is now a national facility providing services such as data recording facilities and expertise in different state-of-the-art instruments to academia and industry from all parts of the country and some international centers. Furthermore,  it is catering to the needs of many educational institutes and industries in and around central India and satisfying the need of scientific world, academia and industries with equal importance and emphasis. It is also engaged in spreading awareness among researchers, academia and industries for the probable use of the facility among diverse users to make the facility a part of our mutual co-existence to enhance quality of researches and products in industries with elan. 

Facilities at SIC

After being established in 2009, IIT Indore took decisive initiatives to excel in the area of research and development. Among the various measures taken at that time, establishing the Sophisticated Instrumentation Center (SIC) was crucial to cutting-edge research in different departments. The significant role of SIC in the tremendous growth of the research atmosphere in IITI is palpable, with each publication coming out of research communities with the required instrumental support from SIC. IITI now stands as one of the leaders among all IITs in research output. Furthermore, with limited research facilities in central India, it is already catering to the needs of many educational institutes and industries in and around central India and lighting the curiosity towards the scientific world.
