The Centre for Advanced Studies in Electronics Science and Technology (CASEST) was established in 2014. It is a successor of the Electronics Programme established at the School of Physics in 1995 at the initiative of University Grants Commission and the (then) Department of Electronics to promote research and teaching in electronic device research. The teaching programmes are reviewed every 5 years and have evolved from M.Sc. (electronics) (2-year programme) to M.Sc. (Tech.) (3-year programme) to the present 2-year M.Tech. programme in Integrated Circuit Technology.
