Department of Information Technology(IT)

   The undergraduate program in Information Technology was started in the year 2000 as one of the programs under the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of CBIT. A separate and full-fledged IT department was necessitated by the increasing differentiation between the tasks addressed by computer science and Information Technology professionals. The full-fledged Department of Information Technology was started in the year 2004 and currently has two sections for the under graduate program with an intake of 120 students per annum. The Department has started its PG program (M.Tech.-Computer Networks and Information Security) with an intake of 18 students per annum from the year 2013. The UG program of the department was accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in the years 2008 and 2013.

All of the faculty members are post graduates and some of the faculty members are doctorates in Engineering. The department has well equipped computer labs consisting of computer systems with high end specifications to meet the needs of the current generation Information Technology applications. These labs along with well qualified and dedicated supporting staff give hands on experience of various Information Technology Applications to the students. The department also encourages internships under various successful industrial organizations.
    The Department of IT can’t be static in the environment of ever-changing and evolving technologies in the field of Information Technology. The Department is in constant interaction with eminent subject experts from other reputed institutions, Industry experts and alumni to upgrade its curriculum. The Department is periodically updating its curriculum to stay relevant to the current Industrial Needs.
