IIT Bombay Vlabs

Virtual Labs Regional Center and Nodal Center


Virtual Labs is a project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT).

Good lab facilities and updated lab experiments are critical for any engineering college. Physical distances and the lack of resources often make it difficult to perform experiments, especially when they involve sophisticated instruments. Also, good teachers are always a scarce resource. The ‘Virtual Labs’ project addresses this issue of lack of good lab facilities, as well as trained teachers, by making remote experimentation possible. With the present day internet and computer technologies, these limitations no longer hamper students and researchers in enhancing their skills and knowledge. Also, in a country such as ours, lab resources need to be shared with fellow researchers to the extent possible. Yet another objective is to arouse the curiosity of the students and permit them to learn at their own pace. This facilitates the absorption of basic and advanced concepts through simulation and remote experimentation. Internet based experimentation further permits use of resources – knowledge, software, and data available on the web, apart from encouraging skillful experiments being simultaneously performed at points separated in space

Maharashtra Institute of Technology has set up Nodal Center and Received designation of Regional Center among IIT Bombay’s Virtual Labs Initiative. 

Specifically, the Virtual Labs project addresses the following:

  • Access to quality labs to those engineering colleges that lack these lab facilities.
  • Access to quality labs as a complementary facility to those colleges that already have labs.
  • A complete Learning management System around these labs.
  • Teacher‐training and skill‐set augmentation through workshops and on‐site training.
