Specialized Research Centres

The Institute has created several specialised centres for multi-disciplinary research, development and entrepreneurship. This has been done as part of its focus on select areas of sustainable innovation-enablement and technology-based opportunity creation. These centres would take initiatives to enable early as well as long-term benefits to the campus, society and the nation. These centres, initially created as virtual centres, would gradually get converted as full-fledged physical centres in about two years' time and are envisioned to become hubs for innovation, research, technology development, skill-development, consulting and outreach, around which not only the LNMIIT but also many other institutions in the vicinity (or even beyond) might get enabled over the years.

Name of the Centre Description/ Objectives Centre Lead
Centre for Next Generation Communication Networks (C-NGCN) The C-NGCN focuses on:
  • Sponsored research and creation of software/ hardware research laboratory for xG Communication Networks.
  • Development of new elective courses on relevant topics, such as, 5G Wireless, SDN, Massive MIMO, Mm-wave Techniques, etc.
  • Conducting workshops on "Emerging Technologies for Next-Generation 5G".
Prof. Ranjan Gangopadhyay
LNMIIT Centre for Technology Business Incubation & Entrepreneurial Leadership (L-CTBIEL) This centre aims at:
  • Providing a platform for faculty, staff, students and alumni for innovation, incubation and entrepreneurial leadership.
  • Enabling technology-based solutions to problems that might be being faced by the campus, society, state and the nation.
  • Providing Business Assistance and Mentoring, accelerate emerging companies' development by providing hands-on assistance during the vulnerable start-up years.
Prof. Anupam Singh
