The Electrical Engineering department at IIT Madras has several laboratories, focussing on distinct aspects of Electrical Engineering. Following are the research-intensive labs in the department -

Labs in Department of Electrical Engineering

Research Centres in EE

There are four research centers in the Department, namely -

It is equipped with state-of-art equipment, including process and characterization tools - equipment for Photomask Fabrication, Photolithography, E-beam lithography, Oxidation and diffusion, electronics, opticals, dry etching, metallization, bonding, etc. 

CPPICS is hosted by the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras, with a long-term mission for catering R&D in programmable photonic integrated circuits and systems using CMOS-compatible silicon photonics technology for solving various levels of complex problems under MeitY. 

The immediate focus of this CoE is to provide better solutions for microwave and quantum photonics applications, such as advanced photonic processors to be used in high-performance RF transceivers, scalable linear optical quantum computing (LOQC) processors for the next-generation qubit computation, and chip-level quantum key generation and distribution circuits, etc.

Aims to develop next-generation AMOLED displays for smartphones, tablets, watches, and wearables. The center is a National Center of Excellence funded by MeitY, DRDO, and Tata Sons. The center has researchers from various fields working on developing the displays. The center consists of a state-of-the-art cleanroom that houses fabrication and characterization equipment.

supported by MeitY, offers primary and advanced-level training programs to prospective users working in nanoelectronics.
