University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) is a central instrumentation facility of the university consisting of Electronics, Mechanical and Glass Blowing workshops managed by faculties, officers and trained technicians. Recently Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) has been installed at USIC. This facility can be used for Image morphology of samples, Image compositional and some bonding differences, Undertake micro and nano lithography and so on. The centre was established in 1990 during Eighth- Plan period with an independent building having 250 sq. meters, housing all three workshops. The main aim is to strengthen the laboratories of user Departments by way of equipment maintenance, calibration of test and measuring instruments, fabrication of gadgets and instruments, attachments required for some imported instrument so as to adapt them to Indian electrical standards etc. The Glass Blowing workshop is mostly involved in design and fabrication of glass apparatus as per the design submitted by researchers, which are otherwise not available generally in the market and repair of costly glass apparatus. The work undertaken by USIC can be broadly classified as analytical services for sophisticated instruments, maintenance of equipments for Language and Science Laboratory, fabrication of teaching aids, development of new instruments, thus covering entire objective of USIC.
