The activities of the Control and Computing Group include Automatic control, Computational methods for systems theory, Graph and matroid decompositions, Cryptography and coding theory, Dynamical systems, Grobner basis methods. There are 21 faculty members. Major labs where research is conducted is Control and Computation Laboratory. For more details about the Control and Computing group visit here.
The research carried out in the Stochastic Systems Laboratory focuses on modelling, algorithm design, and performance evaluation issues in networks, online learning systems, and smart power grids. Our research uses tools from applied probability, data science, optimization, control theory and game theory. Recent projects include:
Cache management in content delivery networks
Algorithms for information-centric networking
Online learning in high-risk environments
Control of opinion dynamics in social networks
Sizing of storage for power grids with renewable generation
At HPC labs, we aim to research to address future needs of high-end parallel computing. Rapid advancements in VLSI technology have ushered a new era in system design, by integrating many systems in a single framework. This makes the whole system much more powerful than it used to be earlier. It has, in turn, enabled us to solve even those problems which hardly had practical significance in the past. Our vision is to develop such high-performance, practical solutions, and contribute to the needs of both scientific and engineering community.

PC Lab provides general computing facilities to students of Electrical Engineering and Reliability Engineering. Both Windows and Linux machines are present in the lab. In addition, a load-balanced server (Rudra) is available for heavier computational use. Software packages like MATLAB, Lyx, Scilab, Spice, Ansys, Sequel, Grace, etc. are installed on Rudra. You can use them for your (academic) work. Standard Linux/unix packages, such as LaTeX, mysql, etc are also available. In addition to Rudra Pclab also provides mail service with a central storage of 500MB to all students and faculty of the department. Team of System Adminstrators provide the tech-end support to the department. All the network infrastructure in the department is maintained the team. The link for PCLAB website is here
