About Department

IT-Department The Department of Information Technology is established in 2001, conducts one UG program in Information Technology with intake of 60 and PG program, M. Tech. in Information Technology with intake of 18. Department is approved research centre of Rashtrashant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University for Ph.D. program. Majority of faculty members are expertise in the fields of Image Processing and Computer Vision, High Performance Computing, Data Mining & Machine Learning and Computer Networking. The department also administers the student's chapter of Computer Society of India (CSI) for YCCE, and conduct various technical events such as programming contests; code night battle, technical quizzes, web designing, etc. The student's council SPIRIT (Society of Passionate Individuals Representing Information Technology) has been formed with the objective of all round development of students. SPIRIT regularly conducts co-curricular and extra-curricular activities as inter/intra college competitions. The Department has 'AURA' student forum. Under this forum, we conduct various social cause activities like cloth donation, Blood donation, Book donation, helping poor background people, etc. Every year department published Magazine – “Maadhyam” and Newsletter – IT “NewsTrack”. With active interaction with the industry students are encourage to participate in internship programs, research activities, project competition and technical paper presentations. The department regularly organizes industrial visits, induction program, student development program, guest lectures, seminar, workshops, in-house training, webinar, etc.
Vision To become a centre of excellence in Information Technology, capable of producing globally competent IT professionals, Committed to well- being of industry and society and to promote research and development in the department.
Mission To produce globally competent and responsible IT professionals, capable of facing the challenges of Industry and society, individually and in teams and to impart in-depth knowledge of fundamental principles and technical skills in Information Technology.
