Information Technology

In the recent year, the challanges before the educational institutes are manifold. It will have to cope with fast changes in technology simultaneously, training more students with adequate informations with less availability of financial support for expansion and excellence.

To meet these challenges, the University introduced a new 4 year B.Tech Course in Information Technology which is the latest emerging area in the present generation. The course was duly approved by AICTE and offered by the University from the academic session 2003-2004 on self financing basis. Presently, the department offers the following courses

  • B.Tech. degree in Information Technology
  • M.Tech degree in Information & Communication Technology
  • Ph.D programme in Information Technology

The University has a Central Computational Facility which meets the basic need of the students of Information Technology. Separate laboratories are being set up for this course.


To be a recognized leader by imparting quality technical education and thereby facilitating the extensive research environment, equipping students with latest skills in the field of technology supplemented with practical orientation to face challenges in the fast morphing modern computing industry and academic for the betterment of the society.

  • To produce best quality IT professional and researchers by providing state of the art training, hands on experience and healthy research environment.
  • To collaborate with industry and academic around the globe for achieving quality technical education and excellence in research through active participation of all the stakeholders.
  • To promote academic growth by establishing Center of Excellences and offering inter-disciplinary postgraduate and doctoral programs.
  • To establish and maintain an effective operational environment and deliver quality,prompt,cost effective and reliable technology services to the society as well as compliment the local and global economic goals.
