University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC)

 

(A Combination of  Rare Facilities for research and development in Science and Technology) 

Introduction:

        This special scheme of UGC i.e., University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) was established in the year 1993 in Gulbarga University. The USIC is a Central Academic Instrumentation facility caters to the needs of all Science Departments and affiliated colleges of the University. The USIC carries out design, fabrication, testing, servicing, calibration of Scientific equipments and analysis of Samples required for research and teaching from various Science Departments/Colleges. The USIC organizes short term courses/ training programs and workshops for the benefit of students and faculty of the University and the affiliated colleges. Also the USIC offers full term Job-oriented course “PG Diploma in Embedded Systems & Applications (PGDESA)”.
