Indian Institute of Technology recognizes the synergy of education with Sponsored Research (SR) and Industrial Consultancy (IC). A full-fledged office operating under Dean (SRIC) provides administrative and accounting support to the faculty undertaking sponsored research and consultancy work.

Dean (SRIC) plays a strong promotional role by working in close cooperation with industry and government organizations and providing IPR support and incentives to the faculty.

For a brief description of Sponsored Research & Industrial Consultancy click at the following links :

      Sponsored research and industrial consultancy are two important modes through which the faculty maintains contact with the frontiers of knowledge and the latest developments in technology. We have entered an era when the products and their technological contents are changing rapidly due to intense competition in the globalized market. Innovations and application of new knowledge have become the key to the survival of Industries. The life of a generation of product has been reduced to only a few years and is becoming increasingly shorter. In these times of continuous innovation and fast changing technology the curriculum must also be updated continuously to keep pace with time and research and consultancy projects help the faculty to enrich the curriculum on a regular basis to offer quality education in science and technology. Thus, the activities of sponsored research and industrial consultancy have become an essential part of the activities of the teachers.

      Historically, this Institute was set up to cater to the development needs of India and that tradition has continued over the last one hundred and sixty years. There is hardly any important project in the country where IIT Roorkee has not contributed directly or indirectly. Major funding has been received for participation in various projects initiated by different Ministries of Government of India like Communication and Information Technology, Non-Conventional Energy Sources, Environment & Forest, Surface Transportation, Human Resource Development, Biotechnology, Atomic Energy and Science and Technology besides a number of major laboratories/ organizations like BRNS, CSIR, ISRO, CWC, CPRI and DRDO. The Institute is making rapid strides in developing collaborative research activities with sister institutes in India and abroad with funding from European Commission (EC), International Committee on Concrete Model Code (ICCMC) Asia, United National Development Programme (UNDP) and NORSAR etc.

      The Institute has well recognized core competence in traditional engineering and its benefit is harnessed for the country's industrial and economic growth through consultancy services. Since we are located in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand where the terrain makes physical access difficult, we are working with the State Government to develop e-based and other technologies appropriate for the development of the state. Consultancy services provide a first hand knowledge of current problems in the industry and helps us to find the directions for future studies to respond to long term needs of technology. The Institute, through its faculty, can handle almost any type of problem/need of the industry. An illustrative list of the types of consultancy services currently being offered can be seen here.

   Some of the major facilities available in the institute to provide the consultancy services are listed below:
