The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati has launched the Centre for Intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems (CICPS), will develop indigenous technologies. The Centre will target developing a minimum of five technologies a year. These technologies will generate direct and indirect employment opportunities, decreasing unemplyment rate.
Students Started Joining
13 PhD students and 18 MTech students have joined the CICPS, these students will particularly work on the technologies for underwater exploration.The TIH IIT Guwahati will fund the center for the first five years.
While addressing the inaugural function of the Centre, Prof. TG Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati, said,
“The CICPS will have major academic, human resources and technology development components with focus to develop products and technologies for underwater exploration which is an untouched research area in the contour.”
He also added that IIT Guwahati was ranked Number 2 by QS World University Ranking for the ’Citation per Faculty’.
The Major Components
There are six major components under Centre for Intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems (CICPS).
Center of Excellence
Human Resource Development

MTech Programme in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence
CICPS Will Provide Fellowships
The human resource development and skill development programs will provide fellowships for doctoral, post-doctoral, and faculties. It will also provide platform for organizing the preliminary and advanced skill development workshops.
The new master’s programme, at CICPS, is designed to address advanced engineering topics and help to meet the growing need for industries.
Graduates will use scientific methods to solve complex problems in both research and practice, particularly for industrial automation, to improve productivity significantly.
