The Research and Development activities of the Institute encompass a wide array of contemporary topics of research interest. All the departments are actively involved in research work, and a large number of publications from our faculty members routinely appear in Scopus indexed journals like Elsevier and IEEE journal.
Silicon has a healthy mix of very experienced as well as enthusiastic young researchers, who are dedicated to making significant contributions to the existing literature in their respective fields.
Some of the areas of active research work being pursued by our faculty members include algorithms, modeling and simulation, internet and web technology, networking, data science, VLSI, optimization, image and speech processing, signal processing, environmental engineering, nanofluids and nanotechnology, electromagnetic studies of conducting oxides, computational fluid dynamics, biomedical systems, power systems, power electronic devices, differential equations and projective geometry.
There is an in-house research proposal scheme to promote scientific investigations in any area of science or engineering; funding as seed money is given to faculty members to start projects in and to promote industry-academia collaboration.
Silicon also has its own incubation center, which has successfully developed award-winning innovative software solutions in the utility, education and health-care sectors, using data analytics and cloud computing platforms. The team includes experts from academia and industry. The in-house ERP which manages various aspects of academics and administration of the Institute was developed by the incubation center.
Silicon Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar has been awarded 'Outstanding Engineering Institute East' for the 2nd year in a row by ABP News. A National Education Awards Ceremony was held on June 23th 2016 at Hotel Taj Lands End, Mumbai to mark the occasion.
The Award was received by Mr Arun Baral of the II Cell. This is indeed a fitting tribute to our commitment to excellence in Technical Education.
