The Department of Information Technology (IT) was started in the year 2001. IT Department has well qualified and dedicated faculty members with excellent teaching and research skills. Our faculty members are working in wide variety of research areas such as Distributed Computing, Security, Embedded Systems, Internet of Things, Networking, Data Mining, Big Data Analytics and Software Testing. Faculty members are encouraged to carry out research activities by setting up industry linked labs and getting funded projects from Government and Private agencies. They are also encouraged to carry out industrial consultancy projects.

The IT Department has well established laboratories with good computing facilities, software tools and applications to provide practical exposure to students. The following labs are set up in the Department in line with technology trends: Python Programming  laboratory, networking  laboratory, Cloud and Data Analytics laboratory. We conduct Value Added Courses, Hands-on workshops and Technical Talks throughout the academic year in order to bridge the gap between the industry and the institute. Conducting the above mentioned events help the students to enhance their skill set. Our students regularly participate in Design Contests and Conferences and win prizes. The placement for IT has been excellent with an average salary of 6.52 Lakhs per annum. Our recruiters include top companies such as  Amazon, Accenture, CTS, TCS and Zoho. Students are encouraged and motivated to do Mini Projects, Online Courses such as NPTEL, Coursera, Udemy, Udacity and Internships which are very much helpful during campus recruitment season.
