About the Department
The Department of Information Technology was established in the academic year 2006- 07. The programme is provisionally accredited by the National Board of Accreditation. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. G. Safeeq, who has more than 16 years of teaching experience. The department comprises of thirteen faculties out of whom, two members are PhD holders and five members are pursuing PhD. The faculty has proved their excellence in academia and research through their research publications in SCI Indexed journals and through participation in activities related various professional bodies. The members of the faculty have contributed themselves in development of standards and in the development of the curriculum of other universities.
The department is facilitated with a laboratory comprising of 72 workstations and a server, which is sufficient to carry out academic exercises and research projects done by the students. Additionally, a laboratory with 32 Terminals, 30 Developer Kits and 8 Sensor Kits is also established to conduct research experiments based on Internet-of-Things, sponsored by Intel Corporation. The department is augmented with 10 University rank holders since the commencement of the programme. The Department also shows a better trend in placing the students in a wide range of companies, such as Infosys, Wipro, HCL, Maveric Systems, L&T Infotech, Cognizant Technological Solutions, Sutherland Global services, Dhyan Infotech, Paxterra Solutions, etc. The placement statistics has raised to 100% in the academic year 2014-15.
