AIT Information Science and Engineering

Information Science and Engineering

Information Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field primarily concerned with the analysis, collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval, movement, dissemination, and protection of information. The Department of Information Science and Engineering was initiated in the year 2000 with an intake capacity of 60 and current intake is 120 students for BE programme, affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi. The zealous department also offers two PG programmes, M.Tech in Computer Network Engineering & M.Tech in Cyber Forensics and Information Security and has R&D center recognized by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi. The department consists of a highly motivated, competent and distinguished faculty committed to the cause of quality education. Research is an integral part of departmental activities where all the faculty members are enthusiastically involved.
The department has well-focused research area and excellent research facilities, which cater to the needs of the research community providing ample opportunity for the students to implement and test their skills. Workshops, seminars and invited talks from experts frequently with the help of professional bodies like Computer Society of India (CSI), Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) and technical student forum “STEIGEN” are systematically organized. The Computer Society of India student branch has been honoured with the “Best Computer Society of India Student Branch Award” at the Computer Society Of India National Convention 2012. The department has collaborated with several top IT giants. The list includes Apple - iOS University Development Programme, IBM -Centre of Excellence, Microsoft-IT Academy, Infosys - Campus Connect Program, EMC2 - Academic alliance partner, Wipro Mision10X, to name a few. Employment through campus placements in premier IT organizations is assured for a majority of the students.
The department has achieved academic milestones by achieving University Ranks. So far several ranks have been credited to the department. Big data community is a unique practice at department of Information Science and Engineering, focused on enriching the competency of our faculty members, students and our research scholars through workshops, FDPs, online courses and National/International Conferences. Through Big data community, multi node cluster set up in the lab it helps the students to execute projects. Another remarkable aspect of the department of Information Science and Engineering is the Inhouse internship program extended to our students to gain expertise by learning and adopting the software engineering practices and developed live projects which are vital for our academic activities.
To this date, the effectiveness of the program has proved to be advantageous to our students to be placed in good organizations during placements. By virtue of our R&D cell, faculty members in collaboration with students have published nearly 80+ scopus index journal papers. To sum it up, Information Science and Engineering is one of the most promising and rewarding field.
