Specialised Labs

The Department has well-furnished specialised laboratories with the latest amenities for needs of students belonging to diversified programmes.

  • NVIDIA Supported Deep Learning Laboratory
  • High Performance Computing Laboratory
  • Networking and Internet of Things Laboratory
  • Information and Network Security Laboratory
  • CISCO Laboratory
  • Super Computer Facility
  • Human Computer Interaction (HCI) laboratory

The Department also possesses multi-GPU based system having wide range of Graphics Processing Units (GPU Cards) supported from NVIDIA (like GeForce, Tesla, K20C, K40C etc) for R&D activities.  NVIDIA Setup (consisting of V100 and G100) is used for performing machine learning, deep learning for accelerating high performance applications in the domain of computational science, bioinformatics, multimedia systems and large database systems.

Computer forensic tools and applications used for hacking are the basic requirements of the Information and Network Security laboratory. Kali Linux, Windows and Ubuntu are the basic operating systems installed on all machines. Tools like Wireshark, WinRTGen, Cain and Abel, Nessus, Burpsuite, Python, Social Engineering Toolkit, SQLMap, John – the – Ripper, Hydra, Zenmap, Wifite, Autopsy, NMAP etc. are used by the students for various experiments by the students. Open source tools are also housed in the laboratory which are installed by the students at run time.

The department has a rich set of equipment for building and testing communication networks. It includes Cisco 1800 series routers, layer 2 and layer 3 switches, wireless access points, and necessary cables and connectors. The department also has a variety of programming boards, sensors and actuators for building sophisticated IoT applications. The list of components includes Arduino, ESP8266, ESP32, Raspberry Pi, NVidia Jetson, transceivers like Xbee, HC05 Bluetooth, LoraWAN, and WiFi. Sensors like DHT11, ultrasonic, infrared, MQ135 gas sensor, pressure sensor, thermal sensor, soil moisture sensor, water level sensor, and Actuators like Relay switches, servo and stepper motors, display, LED etc. are also available.

The HCI lab is set up to promote the research in building predictive systems using sensory signals and sensorimotor data with a focus to build intelligent solutions for various problems found in the areas of Mental health and Education. The lab has an Eye tracker, Emotiv EPOC+ and various sensors/wearable devices for performing research experiments in the said domain of mental health, education, consumer research, medical science and neuroscience.
