International School of Photonics (ISP) came in to existence in 1995 by restructuring and delinking the laser laboratories along with the faculty members of the laser group from the Department of Physics at Cochin University of Science and Technology. Manpower development and establishment of research activities in photonics and related fields are the major objectives of ISP. We have M.Tech course in Optoelectronics and Laser Technology .  Integrated course in Photonics  and also PhD.

The School has one of the best laser laboratories in the country. Our research areas span from fundamental to applied fields in photonics and related areas. ISP had collaborative research activities with various institutions in India and abroad including Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, and presently we are in collaboration with University of Gothenburg, Sweden, Multimedia University Malaysia, University of Aldo Moro Bari, Italy .

Cochin University of Science and Technology: Established in 1971 and named as  University of Cochin, it was the symbol of commitment from the Government of Kerala towards the new scientific policy resolution adopted by the Central Government on 4th March 1958. The birth of the new University was with the specific purpose of “development of higher education with particular emphasis on post-graduate studies and research in applied science, technology, industry and commerce”. The University of Cochin was later reorganized as Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) in February 1986. Specialisations are available in  all Faculties/Departments for higher studies and research. By giving recognition to several well-established premier research institutions in the country and the Southern Naval Command of Indian Navy, the University has brought within its reach the resources available in these institutions also to the use of our  academic community.
