Established under the patronage of Swiss Foundation it is being run under the aegis of Central Scientific Instruments Organization (CSIO), Chandigarh , a constituent laboratory of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), New Delhi .


ISTC today is a training centre of repute in the field of Technical Training. The Indian industry had been impressed with the performance of ISTC and even today after 44 years of its inception, the centre has maintained an excellent quality of training. The basic aim of this training is skills. All the trainees work on machines individually and are trained to execute industrial jobs and face real life work environment.

Behaviour and discipline of trainee are closely monitored and recorded. A rigid system of performance evaluation has been devised to maintain the quality of training.

The training Centre started with the Three Year course “DILPOMA IN INSTRUMENT TECHNOLOGY”. With the passage of time, new courses have been added to keep pace with the changing industrial requirement. In 1973 “POST DILPOMA COURSE IN INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS” was added. In 1977, another course “ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN DIE & MOULD MAKING” was started. Both the courses were established with the help of Swiss Foundation. From 1996 onwards the courses were established with the help of "ELECTRONICS” has been upgraded to “ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN MECHATRONCIS & INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION”
