Information Technology

Introduction

Information Technology is a new branch of study that has emerged over the last decade. While the term “Computer Science” is usually reserved for the more theoretical, academic aspects of computing, the term “Information Technology” includes more of the human activities and non – computerized business processes like knowledge management.

Keeping precisely the above important aspects of computer science and communication technology, the department of Information Technology was introduced way back in 1999. Enriched with highly qualified Faculty members and equipped with state-of-the-art computer labs we produce highly trained and competent software engineers who are already proving their quality and worth in the market.

Programme

B. Tech in Information Technology

Information Technology has thus become a very important part of our lives today. While one might think of the typical IT worker as employed in a major software company as a software developer, the reality is that nine out of ten IT workers are found in banks, insurance companies, manufacturing plants or other non-IT related business. Thus human resource training and requirement in IT is still high and this stream attracts some of the most talented students.

Intake Capacity: 60 [80% students are admitted from WBJEE, 10% from JEE (MAIN), 10% from Management Quota] + 3 students are from TFW Quota

Additional 12 Students are admitted in 3rd Semester through JELET.

VISION

The vision of Information Technology department is to be a recognized leader in Information Technology education in support of teaching and learning, and to be the preferred source of quality technology education, research and community services delivery for the local, national and international levels.

MISSION

  • To build a quality and cutting edge technology infrastructure.
  • Establish and maintain an effective academic environment.
  • Deliver quality, prompt and reliable technology education services aligning with the Institute’s mission in teaching and learning.
  • Engage in emerging research areas and establishing leadership.
  • Contribute to the community services at large as well as catering to socio-economic goals in local and national levels.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • The main objective of Information Technology Program is to churn out technocrats, able to apply basic and contemporary science and engineering experimentation skills to identify software/hardware problems in the industry and academia.
