The Center is the first of its kind IEEE EDS initiative, globally.

The Primary Objective is to provide an educational hub where the Institute faculties, staff, and students (graduate, undergraduate as well as senior high school) work in a collaborative environment to create rich teaching-learning and research experiences in the field of electronic devices and circuits.

The Center shall work on EDS outreach programs to students and women in engineering for taking forward the cause of study in electron devices.

In the long term, the Center envisions enhanced enrollment of students in the electrical engineering program and an increased number of graduating students choosing engineering careers with a continuation of involvement with IEEE and EDS membership.
