The objective of the Department is to produce skilled professionals whose innovations and expertise can make them understand the complex and fast-changing IT environment. The courses taught in the department were designed to specifically meet the current and projected employment needs.
The department gives graduates grounding in business and management skills which are an essential requirement of employers. As computers contribute increasingly to our creativity, communications, entertainment, and well-being, the demand for IT graduates is continuing to grow. Currently companies have developed interest in our students by taking them on as interns in their organisations with a hope of retaining them once they graduate. Because of this need of IT graduates the course has become very competitive.
