IIT faculty take up consultancy and retainership assignments for organizations on specific technical deliverables and inputs requiring specialized expertise. Interested organizations should directly contact concerned faculty and formal projects are eventually handled through the Dean R and D's office at IIT Bombay. Consultancy projects are typically short assignments lasting from 3 months to a year.
Organizations wanting to sponsor developmental work and interact with Master's / Doctoral students can consider the Sponsored Project mode of interaction. The IEOR group undertakes sponsored research, co-ordinated by faculty from the group and adminstered through the office of the Dean R and D at IIT Bombay. Such research is in mutual areas of interest to organizations and the group, and is typically 6 months - 3 years in duration. Master's or Ph.D. students often work on sponsored projects as part of their thesis. It is expected that some publishable work arises from such projects.
The Dean R and D's office assists us in the Intellectual Property issues in such projects. The IITB model is generally that this is shared between IIT and the organization in an appropriate manner.
