HOD's Desk

We are living in an information age and witnessing a phenomenal growth in Information and Communication Technology. This growth has thrown challenges to the education system to keep abreast of the latest technologies.

From a modest beginning in 1999 with a single BTech program with 60 students the department has scaled heights and today offers three programs, one UG program in IT and two PG programs, one in IT and one in Biometrics and Cybersecurity, with a total student strength of 550.

The department endeavors to provide total customer satisfaction by sincerely adhering to the quality policy of the institution and focusing on faculty development, update of facilities and continual improvement.

The infrastructure development in the department has kept pace and state of the art labs have been established to cater to the three programs. A research centre has been setup to promote research in the department. The strength of a department lies in the shelves of its library. True to this saying, the department has a well equipped library. To cap it all the department has obtained NBA accreditation for five years for the BTech – IT program.

The department conducts Board of Studies meetings to receive inputs from the stake holders, namely, industry experts, institution experts, parents and alumni for curriculum development. The Information Technology Association of the department organizes guest lectures and conducts technical events to hone the skills of our students. Alumni meets are conducted annually to hear suggestions from the alumni for the development of the department. With the guidance and motivation of the Principal, support of the management and dedication of the faculty, the department of Information Technology is always in pursuit of excellence.
