In collaboration with the Indian Statistical Institute, the university developed the ISIJU, India s first indigenously made transistor-driven computer, in 1966. This was at the frontier of the technology then available and in recognition the UGC sanctioned a computer centre at part of the electronics department, one of the earliest in the country. In 1988, this finally became an independent department.
The university has received several major grants in recent times to develop new areas and technologies such as cognitive science and mobile computing. Other areas of emphasis include nanotechnology, archives and records, media and communication, and history of the book.
