INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING

ABOUT

The Department of Information Technology was also established in 1999. Currently, it offers a bachelor degree of information technology. It is the 6 years program. The facilities and services such as Web and Database Lab, Network Lab, Programming Lab, Digital and Electronics Lab, Computer Rooms, medical services and so on are administrated by the university.

From crafting the technologies that keep our cell phones and iPods working to developing large scale software that powers business and industry, computer scientists use their technical and creative skills to improve people’s lives in almost every area imaginable. The complex software and hardware systems created by computer scientists impact all aspects of society and influence or transform work done in areas as diverse as medicine, education, music, travel and business.

Computer scientists work most often on the hardware and software aspects of system design. They develop new theories of computation and algorithms, design new hardware and sensors, develop large software systems, evaluate the utility and usability of software systems, and study the impacts of computing technology on society. As a computer scientist, you could develop video games or software used in business or improves health care through the development of electronic medical records that reduce costs and increase communication between medical providers. You might produce animation for the movie industry, invent a new hand-held device, or develop software to manage an air traffic control tower. Many computer science students found their own tech start-up companies and chart their own path after graduation.

Aim and Objectives

  • To meet the minimum requirements for knowledge, understanding and proficiency on Information Technology at operation level.
  • To maintain student pass percentage above 85
  • Drop out students to be reduced by 3 percent ever year
  • To attain the students’ satisfaction for the teaching quality of teachers above 95%
