The department of Information Technology offers engineering programme at the undergraduate as well as at the post graduate levels. The course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge of computer science with emphasis on applications together with a judicious blend of technical skills. The department emphasis the use of learning tools for the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Role-play, case study, project work, practical exposure, assignments, quiz, seminars, industry visits are some of the methods used for teaching learning process. The curriculum provides not only provides technical knowledge but also the exposure to recent technologies . To impart good quality engineering education, the department focuses on development of practical and application oriented minds. It is our attempt to make students learn by doing rather than by simply learning of topics and subjects.
The vibrant faculty members of the department possess demonstrated expertise in many areas of information technology and flair for teaching different courses. The department consists of a medley of faculty members with industrial and academic experience. . The department has qualified and experienced faculty in the areas of Computer Architecture, Database Systems, Neural Networks, Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Wireless and Sensor Networks, Computer Networks, and Operating System. There are fully equipped laboratories in department such as: Computer Programming Lab, DBMS Lab, Software Engeineering Lab, Networking Lab, Project Lab, R & D Lab.
