#IEM has long been well known for pioneering path breaking innovations in the technical and entrepreneurial fields. Allow us to break some myths and clear the fog surrounding our organization, and clarify what exactly is #IEM-IEDC (Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Center), and how it can be your next step towards achieving your dream.
IEM-IEDC is a community of like minded peers who strive to build technical and non technical innovations in emerging fields, and stretch the boundaries of existing technology to benefit society. True to our name, we focus on innovation and entrepreneurship development. Funded by DST (Department of Science and Technology, Government of India), we develop multi-disciplinary projects as well as release patents and papers. We do what we care about and are really passionate about what we do.
What does this mean to you, as an undergraduate?
Educational resources, powerful computing machines, high speed network, infrastructure upholding the highest industrial standards, and hardware equipment which you’ll not find in most places. Apart from resources, we help you figure out ways you can bring your dream projects to life. DST and Institute itself provides funding for projects, if necessary, and also helps with the patent filing.
Our wide network of alumni is something we are immensely proud of. They are majorly based in some of the top Research and Development Labs across the world, and actively reach out to our current members, to offer any help or connections they might require.
We provide ample research and product development opportunities for our students, and having our very own research lab within #IEM allows our students to gain an edge.
We also have outreach programs among the industrial giants, which include yearly industrial visits to the TCS Innovation Lab, annual talks in CII sessions and PwC led mentoring sessions.
Achievements of the past few years:
● 10+ patents under our belt
● 22 scopus indexed and 30+ other publications
● 18 ongoing projects and 55+ completed projects
● IEDC projects have led IEM to win first prize at the MAKAUT Conclave consistently for several years

● Smart EVM and Women Safety Gloves, covered by several national media outlets
● CII panel members in recent years
● PwC led mentoring sessions

We plan to bring you all of these amazing projects with information on the people behind the concept, and their profiles and achievements, on our page, and let you get a peek at how we function. Gear up and we’ll keep you posted!
