On January 14, 1953, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan dedicated CSIR-CECRI as the 12th national laboratory under the CSIR to the nation. Today, CSIR-CECRI, a proud family of 700 members (120 of whom are scientists), is the largest research establishment for electrochemistry in South Asia.
It serves as a launching pad for a multitude of technologies for the Indian electrochemical industry.
In living up to its reason for being, the institute works on a gamut of problems covering all facets of Electrochemical Science and Technology,Corrosion Science and Engineering, Electrochemical Materials Science. Electrochemical Power Sources, Electrochemical Pollution Control, Fundamental Electro Chemistry, Electro metallurgy, Industrial Metal Finishing and Nanoscale Electrochemistry.
Since 1991, the technical symposium, Seminar on Electrochemical and Chemical Technology (SELECT) was being conducted every year with an objective to foster awareness and exploring attitude among the student community to achieve breakthroughs on various aspects of Electrochemistry and other fields of engineering.
Initiative for a National Technical & Research Symposium on Electrochemical and Chemical Technology (INTERSECT) is a national level technical symposium and cultural fest organized by Electrochemical Technologists Association (ETA) functioning under the aegis of CSIR-CECRI, Karaikudi.
Team Intersect 2K19
We do everything with our core values of honesty, hard work and trust.
The ratio of We's to I's is the best indicator of the development of a team.
Our Grand Success
Since 1991, the technical symposium, Seminar on Electrochemical and Chemical Technology is organized by CECRI and student community from various realms.
INTERSECT'18 being held at CSIR-CECRI during Feb 2018. From 2015 onwards, we had include the entertainment quotient and renamed as INTERSECT
so as to make the event more opulent, which was grand success.
ETA (Electrochemical Technologist Association) is an organization of B.Tech students and PhD scholars of CSIR-CECRI chaired by a Scientist. It aims to instil technical knowledge to students through invited lectures and talks of eminent scientists. It also provides students from other institution a chance to present their works and to enjoy the research atmosphere of CSIR-CECRI through its national level technical symposium and cultural fest INTERSECT.
KALA (C(K)ultural And Literary Association) is also a student organization chaired by scientist which aims to develop extracurricular skills of the students. This act as a platform for students from our college as well as other colleges to show their talents. Annual Inter college cultural fest is held jointly with ETA in INTERSECT and the Intra college cultural fest was held through separate event named Intraface.
