As the demand for Information Technology talent continues to increase and this trend will only grow over time, the department of IT started offering B.Tech program in Computer Science and Information Technology (CSIT) from the year 2020 with an intake of 180.
Currently, the department of Information Technology is offering the following B.Tech programs:
B.Tech: Information Technology (IT)
B.Tech: Computer Science & Information Technology (CSIT)
B.Tech program in Information Technology was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) successively four times i.e. in 2008, 2013, 2016 and 2019 (valid till 30 June, 2022).
The department of IT aims at imparting quality education in the realm of IT, software engineering and domain specific application with an objective to enhance and expand the knowledge and skill sets of target students, so that they can contribute in the betterment of Society at large.
The main objectives of department are to provide:
1. Design and develop the software products
2. Real time work experience
