A Home with CASI...

The Indus Science and Technology site was created in 2000 by Dr. M. A. Pai, Professor Emeritus, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois and his wife, Mrs. Nandini Pai.

When Dr. and Mrs. Pai created the site, they envisioned it finding a permanent home in an academic institution. After eight years of developing it, Indus Science and Technology has found a home at CASI. As the multifaceted areas of science and technology continue to grow and expand in India well into the 21st century, CASI gratefully takes on the task of partnering with Dr. and Mrs. Pai in continuously providing the most relevant and informative links available.
