The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt. of India has established "MHRD´s Innovation Cell (MIC)" to systematically foster the culture of Innovation amongst all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The primary mandate of MIC is to encourage, inspire and nurture young students by supporting them to work with new ideas and transform them into prototypes while they are informative years.

MIC has envisioned encouraging creation of "Institution's Innovation Council (IICs)" across selected HEIs. A network of these IICs will be established to promote innovation in the Institution through multitudinous modes leading to an innovation promotion eco-system in the campuses.

The Institution´s Innovation Council (IIC) at Asansol Engineering College has thus been established in July, 2021 for encouraging the creativity in our students´ minds with respect to new ideas and innovation and also in promoting them towards start-up creation and entrepreneurial ventures.
