Research @ DA-IICT

Research at the institute falls into several contemporary areas of Information and Communication Science and Engineering (VLSI design, mobile ad-hoc and sensor networks, wireless communication, digital signal & image processing, machine intelligence, security, embedded systems, and bioinformatics) and of Social Sciences and Rural Development. To support research and development, a full range of required infrastructure has been established, including well-equipped laboratories, specialized equipment, campus wide networking, high - speed internet access and subscription to hundreds of print and online journals. An important aim of the research and development activities is to stimulate and enhance the research ability and potential of students who have the interest and aptitude to carry out innovative research. DA-IICT Centre for Entrepreneurship and Incubation (DCEI) started in 2007 is a launch pad for students and faculty who wish to turn their technical inventiveness into successful businesses. To provide impetus to the various incubation activities at DCEI, the Department of Information Technology (DietY), Government of India has sanctioned a grant of Rs. 1.5 crore under the Technology Incubation and Development of Entrepreneurship (TIDE) scheme to provide financial assistance to start-ups.

The DA-IICT has signed Memorandum of Understanding with national and international Institutions to promote and enhance academic and research interactions as well as collaborations. The notable MOUs are: Government of Gujarat to mentor the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Vadodara, Indian Navy for training, joint research and development; Space Application Center, Ahmedabad for research collaboration, Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar for teaching, research and exchange of faculty; Institut Superieur D'Electronique De Paris, France for exchange of faculty, students and joint research; TATA Consultancy Services for Research Scholar Program; Ramakrishna Sarada Sevashram, Bastar, for joint research; eiTRA-einfochips Institute of Training Research and Academics, Ahmedabad to train and upgrade the skills of eiTRA employees, provide consultancy and guidance for technological research and project execution, associate with academic programs offered by Ganpat University and project/internship of DA-IICT students at eiTRA-einfochips; and International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics, Hyedrabad for teaching, training and research; exchange and host students and scholars for research and degree programs by each other.
