Central Instrumentation Facility

Aiming creation of a unique infrastructure for high profile R & D activities as well as academic environment in the North-East Region of the country, University of Science and Technology, Meghalaya (USTM) has developed laboratories providing the latest versions of very high precession equipments. The well organized laboratories of the University would definitely be helpful immensely in providing research facilities, particularly in the Ph.D. programme, to the talents of the region in developing their career bright through their high profile work and contributions to the society. UG , PG students and Ph.D. Scholars of the University are being encouraged and benefited in the process of learning, utilizing these facilities under the guidance of experienced faculties.

USTM is intending to extend these facilities to those researchers/scholars too, who are not enrolled in any programme of its own, on reasonable payment basis.
