The faculty of the EE Department at IIT Delhi has published and continues to publish prolifically in renowned journals and conferences. The department undertakes a large number of sponsored research projects funded by both government agencies and industries. The department offers a strong postgraduate research program (MS by research and Ph.D. programs). Short courses on recent trends and hot topics in electrical engineering are continually held in the department. We are in the process of compiling information about the department's research activities and post them on this page. Kindly bear with us until we announce this page!
