INFORMATION SCIENCE

Started in 1999, the Department of Information Science & Engineering offers students a graduate program with an intake of 60. The department has well-qualified and dedicated teaching and non-teaching staff and well-equipped laboratories to fulfill the academic needs of the students. The B.E (ISE.) program was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation in 2007. The department conducts special courses on advanced topics, to bridge the gap between the university curriculum and the need of the industry. The department has been granted autonomy by VTU since 2007. The dept. is offering M.Tech., (Computer Network Engineering) from Academic Year 2012.

Vision Statement
The vision of the Dept. of ISE is to uniquely position the Dept. as a leader in innovation and excellence in information science and engineering through education, research and scholarship in a professional framework by addressing evolving global needs. Also the Dept. aims at creating top quality successful and sustainable programs and curricula for the students to address the emerging educational challenges and market demands.

Mission Statement
• To provide outstanding education and research training to the students for their productive careers in industry, academia and government
.• To provide a learning environment that promotes excellence and innovation, ethical practice and responsibility towards society.
• To prepare the students to practice their professions competently to meet the ever-changing needs of society and to continue learning their discipline, allowing them to move into other related fields.
• To promote active learning, critical thinking, and engineering judgement coupled with business and entrepreneurial skills.

Projects
The department also trains students in software development skills by assigning various projects on emerging technologies to meet the industry requirements in the pre-final and final year courses.

Activities
The department of Information Science & Engineering encourages students to participate in curricular and co-curricular activities. Versatile Information Science Technical Aspirants(VISTA) is a student association through which students can interact with industries and institutions. Seminars and guest lectures from eminent personalities on topics of cutting edge technology have been organised through VISTA. Students are encouraged to publish research papers in journals and present the same at conferences. The department has won several prizes in project exhibitions held at the State as well as National level.
