Professor and Head
 
We welcome aspiring undergraduate entrants with strong aspiration to do engineering course and excel with academic records. At the end of course, students evolve into brilliant and confident engineers, prepared to face technical challenges inherent to the field of information technology. 
 
The focus of the department is to provide students with in-depth knowledge in the field of computer and information technology through the following two academic programs:
  • B.E.- Information Science and Engineering (ISE) (4 years)
  • M.Tech.- Computer Network and Engineering (CNE) (2 years)

The undergraduate curriculum emphasizes on theoretical and practical aspects of information science. The postgraduate curriculum provides expertise in the areas of computer networking and communication. The curriculum is designed to meet industry standard and cope with the fast changing technology. Extension lectures and industrial visits are organized frequently to provide an overview on recent and current trends of information technology. 

Apart from curriculum, the students are encouraged to participate in research projects, technical events, cultural activities and sports. The department has a strong coverage of alumni network to support curriculum development and career guidance for ongoing student batches. Our department faculty remain a constant source of inspiration to students in order to achieve outstanding results and excellent placement records.
