IIT Madras is embarking on an ambitious project to build the nation's first of its kind, cross-discipilnary infrastructure systems lab. The lab will bring together expertise from Civil, Mechanical, Electronics, and ComputerScience to look at new disruptive ways of delivering the infrastructure needs of India.
About the cause:
- The lab will be constructed in two phases. The 1st phase will come in the existing campus for an estimated INR 2 crore spend and the next phase is being planned in the IIT Madras Thaiyur campus extension at a $2 million price tag.
- This project will build upon existing expertise in related areas in the departments of Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Science.
- More recently, IITM has also been doing research in various areas of construction technology where faculty from mechanical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering and material science collaborate to develop cutting edge technologies.
