Department of Information Technology
Information Technology is one of the best emerging branches in the engineering education. Information Technology is a fast growing discipline and is full of rigorous practical analysis. Information Technology refers to the management and use of the information using computer-based tools. It can refer to both hardware and software. Mostly, it is the term used to refer to business applications of computer technology rather than scientific applications. Information Technology (IT) can be used potentially in every sector of the economy. Information Technology has been a dynamic sector in many developed economies and India has stood out as a developing country where IT sector has grown indefinitely. Information Technology jobs in India are the first choice career for the bright brains who are innovative. Hence, IT jobs in India are also booming with increasing demand for information technology professionals. The IT industry has great scope for people as it provides employment to technical and non-technical graduates and has the capability to generate huge foreign exchange inflow for India. India exports software’s and services to approximately 95 countries in the world. Since all the engineering sectors need the basics of IT and so the IT students have a best future to settle down in any of the engineering sector.
When computer and communications technologies are combined, the result is information technology, or "infotech". There is a swift convergence in the areas of computing and communications as a result of relations developing in the data and information environment .IT professionals perform a variety of duties that range from installing applications to designing complex computer networks and information databases, data management, networking, engineering computer hardware, database and software design as well as the management and administration of entire systems. The goal of the Department is thus to cater to all the above needs and prepare students both in theoretical and practical knowledge to face the challenges of the fast becoming technology world.
Department of information Technology was established in the year 1999 with 40 students as intake and now strengthens to 60. The department has been accredited by NBA and Affiliated to JNTUA, Anantapur.
The alacrity of the students to learn makes it easier for the information Technology to produce top-scratch engineers who are being recruited by various companies all over the world. The department’s dynamic methods to build the zeal among students have enhanced them to build proficient and responsible engineers, which makes them capable of getting recruited by various MNC’S all over the world.
The faculty members are highly motivated and devoted in delivering the highest quality professional education to students, and strive to excel in their research areas.
To continually enhance its educational environment by offering flagship programs with innovative pedagogy to turn graduates into IT professionals.
