"This centre will serve as a nodal research centre which will feed to other colleges and lot of other research labs in the country," said Pathy V Iyer, business development manager – Education, Agilent Technologies.

The lab will be open to students from other engineering colleges, where they can come and access the tools and facilities free of charge. However, industry using this lab for research would be charged.

"In the Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics, which is created at IIT Bombay with support from the Department of Electronics & Information Technology, government of India, we have been using lot of Agilent equipment for our advanced nanoelectronic device characterisations," said Prof. V.Ramgopal Rao, chief investigator, Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics project, IIT Bombay. "Agilent is one of the world's leading companies in precision measuring instruments. It is a great learning experience for our students to be exposed to such advanced characterisation equipment as part of their research and educational activities."
