LNMIIT Centre for Smart Technology (L-CST)

Month & Year of Establishment: August 2017

Nature of Centre for initial 2-year period: Virtual

Motivation

The L-CST works towards identification of key needs that campus, society, the state and the nation may have which, in a prioritized and phase wise manner ,could be addressed with the creation of smart technology based cost effective solutions, testing (pilot deployment included), deployment, technology transfer, commercialization and, wherever feasible and relevant, outreach.

The L-CST is evolving into a center of excellence in terms of research, innovation, development and new venture creation in it/CPS areas. It has a Center-Lead, a Nucleus and a Centre-team comprising of faculty, scholars, students and staff.

Goals & Objectives

  1. Society and Country: Developing smart technology solutions for India, affordable to its common people.
  2. Education and Training: Giving training to students and making them industry ready.
  3. Research and Technology Development: Developing various technologies using resources of sponsored projects and involving PG and PhDs students.
  4. Entrepreneurship and Technology Commercialization: Converting prototypes to product; Commercializing Solutions

Vision & 5-year Roadmap

  1. L-CST envisions to create an ecosystem of research on Smart Technologies involving academia, industries and public entities (organization of central and state government, hospitals, civic body and defense organization).
  2. L-CST envisions to develop a talent pool on technologies related to Smart Systems at large.
  3. L-CST envisions to nurture young mind to use create solution to the problems faced by business houses, society and nation at large.
  4. L-CST envisions to make LNMIIT campus as a model campus with the objective of having minimum per capita consumption of energy, water and other natural resources without compromising with the lifestyle.
  5. L-CST envisions to make LNMIIT as a zero waste campus.
  6. L-CST envisions to evolve smart technologies for entrepreneurship activities through gated and time bound approach.
