The Centre for Electronics Design and Technology was established in 1974 at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, with the joint support of the then Department of Electronics (DoE), Ministry of Education, University Grants Commission and Swiss Agency for Development and Co-operation under the Technical and Scientific Co-operation Agreement, New Delhi of 1966 between Governments of India and Switzerland. CEDT is now a full Centre in the division of Electrical Sciences of the Indian Institute of Science.
During the years 1974-1997 CEDT received funds from the Department of Electronics and Swiss Development Co-operation besides the regular support received from the Indian Institute of Science. The generous support provided by the DoE, especially during the Seventh Plan period, enabled the Centre to move into its own building, and explore many avenues and establish a good postgraduate degree programme to train engineers as designers of electronic equipment. Swiss funding enabled many of the faculty of CEDT to work in several industries and R and D laboratories of Switzerland, to benefit from several short and long-term Swiss experts, and to ensure smooth functioning of the Centre. CEDT established an excellent contact with the electronic industries replaced after the structural changes that took place in the Indian Industry during the 90s. CEDT now received considerable funding from the industry.
