2) RESEARCH FACILITIES
All the departments of the Institute have well equipped research laboratories and workshop facilities. In
addition, there are a number of central facilities, which include Computer Centre, Central Library,
Workshop, Xerox and Photography Sections. The Central Library has a very large collection of books, back
volumes of periodicals, standard specifications and other literature. The Library has now more than 3 lakhs
books and volumes and subscribes to over 1500 current journals in Science, Engineering, Humanities and
Social Sciences.
The Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering (CSRE) established by the Department of Education,
Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India, offers M.Tech. Programme in Natural Resources
Engineering. The CSRE is concerned with the area of Remote Sensing pertaining to natural resources
exploration, exploitation and management.
The Centre for Research in NanoTechnology
& Science (CRNTS), is well equipped for pursuing research in
nanotechnology. Almost all sophisticated tools required for Nanotechnology research are housed here.
The Center for Environmental Science and Engineering (CESE) funded by the Department of Education,
Govt. of India, is concerned with air and water quality management, Computer Added Design for
wastewater engineering systems, low waste techniques, etc.
The Department of Science and Technology (DST), Defense Research & Development Organization (DRDO)
and Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) of Government of India, has sponsored the setting
of a National Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility (NGCF) to facilitate research in frontier areas.
The Centre for Technology Alternatives for Rural Areas (CTARA) is concerned with development, transfer
and impactassessment
of technology in the context of socioeconomic
development of a small region. To
this end, the centre offers courses (coupled with field work) to impart necessary perspectives and
quantitative skills.
The Industrial Design Centre established in 1969, has followed an integrated and interdisciplinary approach
towards design education. The centre over the past years has experimented with different methods in
design education to develop a flexible structure to suit the needs of students.
Schools in Cryogenics, Lasers and Laser Systems, Offshore Engineering and Management have special
facilities in these areas of research work. New facilities under the Thrust Area Programmes in the fields like
Microelectronics, Microprocessor Applications, Intelligent Systems, Robotics, CAD/ CAM, Remote Sensing,
Telematics, etc. have been created.
Centre for Aerospace Systems Design & Engineering (CASDE) and Centre for Formal Design and
Verification of Software (CFDVS) have been established recently.
The Institute has many research collaborations with leading universities in USA, Europe, Japan, and other
East countries. As part of these collaborations, the post graduate students get opportunities to carry out
joint research projects with faculty and students from these universities.
11
The Centre for Distance Engineering Education Programme (CDEEP) was started by the Indian Institute of
Technology (IIT) Bombay with the express aim of providing high quality distance education in engineering
and science to a large number of participants throughout the country and abroad. CDEEP would like to
share the expertise of IIT Bombay faculty with students and working professionals everywhere. The courses
offered through distance education are the very same ones that are taken by IIT Bombay students. To reach
as many learners as possible, CDEEP is using different mediums and various technologies.
Approximately 7 to 10 M.Tech. projects will be taken up every year in collaboration with German Academic
Exchange Service (DAAD) wherein students work on their projects in reputed German Universities like
Aachen, Berlin, Darmstadt, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart and Dresden.
The location of IIT Bombay in close proximity to several leading R & D Centers and major industrial
establishments offers excellent opportunities to interact with them and plan some of research programmes
in collaboration with them. The Industrial Research and Consultancy Centre (IRCC) coordinates

15 INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH: IO
35
The discipline of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) essentially deals with efficient
operation of systems and optimal utilization of resources. Concepts and results from the discipline are
becoming increasingly important these days in almost all sectors of the economy viz., industrial, transport,
service, agriculture, education, communication etc. With present day technology, various types of data,
including the transactional type, are available relatively easily and designing appropriate decision making
algorithms is becoming a realistic goal, sought by competitive and forward looking organizations in both
private and public sector. Also, the role of theory to provide some insight into the
tradeoffs involved in decision making becomes significant. There is opportunity to work on interesting
problems that involve modeling, analysis and computation.
Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) at IIT Bombay conducts research in a unique and
insightful manner in today’s economic context. The programme offers a blend of theory, modelling and
application, drawing from traditional as well as modern areas of operations research, together with a
systems view derived from longstanding
principles of industrial engineering. The programme is unique in
its contemporary flavor, with specialized courses in Integer Programming, Game Theory, Markov Decision
Processes, Services Management, Supply Chain Management, Financial Engineering, Knowledgebased
systems, Neural Networks, System Dynamics to name a few. The programme is equally strong in
background building with updated courses in Optimization Techniques, Stochastic Models and Simulation.
Broad areas of application are in manufacturing systems, supply chains, logistics, transport including
railways, finance, communication networks, services, infrastructure and other industrial systems;
application of quantitative methods in quality and maintenance management systems; development and
application of decision support, intelligent and knowledgebased
systems.
The website http://www.ieor.iitb.ac.in/ has details on the faculty, students, research, teaching, academics,
admissions, and other activities of the programme.
