Arthur C Clarke Institute for Modern Technologies (ACCIMT)

What is ACCIMT

History

The Institute was established in 1984 under the name Arthur C Clarke Center for Modern Technologies (ACCIMT) by an Act of Parliament to accelerate the process of introduction and development of modern technologies in the fields of Communications, Computers, Energy, Space Technologies and Robotics, through the provision of training and research facilities. Basic infrastructure was established in 1986 and the technical activities commenced in early 1987. With the introduction of the new Science and Technology Act in 1998 the Centre was re-named as Arthur C Clarke Institute for Modern Technologies (ACCIMT).

Today

As at today the Institute is actively involved in the areas of Communications, Electronics, Microelectronics and Information Technology where a team of electronic engineers and other related professionals are working towards self-reliance in the areas related to modern technologies.

Besides extensive R&D activities, Institute is heavily involved in continuing professional development (CPD) activities and youth training programmes in addition to its consultancy services for the industry. Institute has the infrastructure and human resources for development of products, systems and techniques for industrial applications in electronics, communications and IT (ECI) sectors, with exports in mind.
