About The Centre

Centre for System Design (A Centre of Excellence at NITK Surathkal) envisages an interdisciplinary approach and means for realization of successful engineering systems. Key components for this are system modeling & simulation, understanding system dynamics, system optimization, virtual and physical experimentation. The Centre aims at facilitating and providing required environment for all the key components of system design.Modern engineering problems are comprised of elements from all the traditional disciplines and these elements must be integrated to meet the overall design objectives. The Centre focuses on how to address and solve problems that transcend traditional boundaries.

NITK Surathkal has signed an MoU with M/s National Instruments, Bangalore in the area of Centre for Graphical System Design. Centre is also pursuing with many industries and R&D labs to have active collaborations and MoUs.


  • To provide facilities for experimental learning through system design, simulation and actual experimentation on physical systems to enhance the understanding of basic concepts in science, engineering and technology
  • To provide cutting edge techniques for data acquisition, digital signal processing, real time control systems and graphical simulation
  • To provide a platform for industry-academia collaboration on multidisciplinary research
