The Center runs a multidisciplinary research program involving more than 20 faculty members and 14 research scholars from various departments of engineering and basic science of institute. The Center has started its functioning in its state-of-the-art Signal and Image Processing Laboratory equipped with all the ultra modern machinery set at par with any international research center. Apart from carrying out frontier research in the areas mentioned above, the center aims at creating technologies that can be commercially exploited by industries. The Center is also engaged in an ambitious plan for generating high caliber manpower and entrepreneurs in the field of Signal and Image Processing.

The key aim of center is to attract and tap the top class talent to carryout frontier research in Signal and Image Processing. The CoE is expected to contribute to the training of R&D manpower for industry. To achieve this there is need to recruit research scholars at least twice in a year i.e. in every semester through thorough competitive environment.
