Sensors are universally used to create electronically enabled, embedded systems to increase automation and to enhance efficiency. The rapid advances in fields of micromachining and microcontrollers have expanded the application of sensors beyond the realm of traditional fields. Sensor technologies form an interdisciplinary domain that can bring together several modalities of sensing, actuation and signal processing.


  • Conduct R&D in sensor-modules, MEMS sensors, sensor arrays, sensor signal processing, and wireless sensor networking.
  • Explore application of sensors in critical areas like energy, environment, agriculture, healthcare and defence.
  • Convert the most promising sensor based ideas and innovations into market ready prototypes for commercialization.


PES University ensures the best in faculty work in well-equipped labs. Each domain is guided by a domain head with sterling academic credentials and a passion for research and development activities. The domain head leads a research team comprising of members drawn from the faculty who work closely with the students. The key technologies are selected taking into account availability of expertise and potential industry support. The students get a chance to try their hands on the latest software tools.


Research enriches all aspects of teaching and learning in the curriculum. The list of current projects demonstrates the deep domain knowledge of the faculty and competence of the students. Premier organizations have relied on PES University’s talent for active assistance. The guidance provided by the experienced faculty and the well equipped laboratories have ensured successful completion of projects that meet the expectations of the funding organization.


The Centre for Research & Engineering in Sensor Technologies (CREST) at PES University has successfully initiated projects independently and in collaboration with other research institutes. At present the funding organizations for this domain are government organizations. The vibrant academic environment and a tradition of active participation in technical events have resulted in publications in premier conference proceedings and leading journals.
