The EECS Division encourages collaboration among faculty members, cutting across the four Departments of the Division and even across the six Divisions in the Institute.
Thematic research clusters represent a growing culture of faculty members cutting across departments and divisions collaborating on contemporary inter-disciplinary themes. The goal of a research cluster is to pursue collaborative research with a shared vision, conduct regular technical meetings, organize focussed workshops, identify and take up high impact initiatives at national and international scale, and secure large grants. Here is an expanding list of such clusters.
Analysis and Probability Research Group (APRG)
Artificial Intelligence Group (AI@IISc)
Brain, Computation, and Data Research Group
