About the department

The Department of Information Science and Engineering was established in the year 2022 with an initial intake of 60 students. The department has achieved a milestone by increasing intake to 120 students from the academic year 2023-24. The department boasts well-equipped laboratories that facilitate hands-on learning experiences. Additionally, the Department of Information Science and Engineering has entered into Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with various companies, enhancing opportunities for collaboration and practical industry exposure. Students are encouraged to take up interdisciplinary research in various domains of computer science like computer vision, Data Mining, Networking, high performance computing etc.

The Department of Information Science &Engineering, established in the year 2022. The Department has eight faculties with two Doctorates and three pursuing Ph.D. in reputed universities. The department offers an undergraduate program where students delve into core computer aspects, including software, networking, programming, operating systems, web development, and database management. The program also enables students to master advanced topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cyber forensics, artificial intelligence, biometric management, and software development. It hosts faculty who are involved in supporting funded research and consultancy projects apart from training the students in academics. The faculty members are actively involved in current areas of information technology in presenting papers at conferences which are widely published in international and national journals and conferences thereby producing research outputs of international standard. Faculty of the department applied many research projects of AICTE,SERB, UGC, VTU. Several patents have been filed by the Department faculty. The faculty members are associated with Professional bodies such as CSI, IAENG,CSTA, and AICTE. The industry relationship helps us frame the course curriculum accordance with industry expectation and standards.

It offers a comprehensive infrastructure to support our academic programs. Our state-of-the-art laboratories provide students with the necessary resources to successfully implement and execute their coursework, ensuring a hands-on learning experience. The department has a student forum, "Innovista" aimed at encouraging and organizing co-curricular activities. This platform provides students with opportunities to enhance their skills beyond the academic realm. These activities play a crucial role in building a robust curriculum that prepares students for the challenges and opportunities in the dynamic field of Information Science & Engineering. Departmental library is a treasure trove of knowledge, housing a diverse collection of books and articles. This invaluable resource serves as a wellspring of information, supplementing classroom teachings and aiding students in their pursuit of knowledge. The department actively conducts various placement activities. These initiatives aim to connect students with opportunities in the industry, fostering a seamless transition from academia to the professional world.
