The institute has an EDUSAT Laboratory which aids in conducting interactive satellite based distance educational and
technical programmes. The Lab also facilitates virtual lectures of experts on various subjects of engineering and management science.
The 1950kg EDUSAT Lab was launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota by ISRO and placed at
36,000 km height in geostationary orbit (GSO).
It joins the INSAT system with other satellites in GSO to provide a variety of telecommunication and television services.
