Department of Information Technology
The department of Information Technology was established on the very day the college was founded on August 29, 2000. The department started its journey with the vision of promoting advancement of teaching and learning Information Technology through research oriented dissemination of knowledge.  The department eyes at innovative application of information science as a service to the industry and the society. With the graduation of our first batch of sixty students in the year 2004, our mission tasted its first success towards fulfilment of our vision. Over the years, a large number of our students have proved their brilliance in serving the industry, academia and the society in general both in the country and abroad.

The department has a rich mix of young and experienced scholars serving as members of the faculty. The guidance and encouragement that the faculty members provide to the students extend beyond the regular curricular activities and encompasses education through workshops, seminars, industry visits, quizzes, etc.
