Crucible of Research & Innovation (CORI), an unique creation of PES University, is established for providing conducive atmosphere for students and staff to carry out research in all fields of science and engineering. CORI supports the strong belief of the University in kindling the interest among the students to understand the concepts they study thoroughly and apply them in new ways. CORI is a blend of mentors with enthusiastic faculty and highly experienced researchers from ISRO and industry who mentor students to gain hands on experience that makes students competent for higher learning as well as industry.

CORI is providing research support to various government organizations and industries to fill the gap in technology. With success have come new challenges and responsibilities. Over the last several years, the CORI has been working to enhance both facility – our most precious resource, and software. Satellite integration facility with class 100K clean room and PES Satellite Control Facility are a few examples which show the strong commitment of PES University in promoting research on campus.

The proactive support by the University for Research Based Activities has helped students to focus on space research as well, which led to the launch of a nano satellite – PISAT. The experience is extended to make more satellites for national cause. CORI also collaborating with an American University for research focused on mitigation of space debris, particularly in low altitude Earth orbits.

CORI helps in creating research environment for faculty to carry out research and students to gain practical experience thereby supporting industry for technology development in the country.
