Excellence in Action
Instruments have revolutionized how we look at the world and extended the range of our senses. The development of the modern scientific method and its emphasis on testable hypotheses required the ability to make quantitative and ever more accurate measurements. Instrumentation has often been cited as the pacing factor of research; the productivity of researchers is only as great as the tools they have available to observe, measure, and do research. Cutting-edge instruments not only enable new discoveries but help to make the production of knowledge more efficient. Many newly developed instruments are important because they enable us to explore phenomena with more precision and speed. Advanced tools enable scientists to answer increasingly complex questions, and new findings in turn enable the development of more powerful and sometimes novel instruments.
University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) was created with the objective to uplift the quality of research in basic as well as applied field of sciences. Under the leadership of the present Vice-Chancellor, Prof.Dr.N.Rajendran, the USIC is taking initiative to maximize the use of expensive/sophisticated equipments in the University through training and maintaining the equipments at the state of the art level. Further, this advanced facility is also being extended to the research fraternity from nearby Institutions at a very affordable cost.
