Department of Information Technology



                  Initially started as Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management (IIITM) in 1997, this institute was prefixed with ABV in 2002 to honour the then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. As part of organizational restructuring process, in August 2022 four departments were carved out and Information Technology (IT) is one among those. Department of IT is housed in Block-A with adequate facilities to cater the needs of all its stakeholders.            

                  The current information age is enabled by the interconnection of millions of electronic computers (desktop, laptop computers and sophisticated mobile phones, embedded devices etc.) and is the key driver for the global economy. Information digitization revolutionalized the way information can be used in a decentralized manner at varying scale and variety of purposes for the societal good. This resulted in the emergence of several service and product-oriented IT industries employing millions of manpower drawn from different disciplines of engineering, technology, economics, sciences, management etc. to develop and maintain the IT infrastructure and applications. This branch of technology is thus become an indispensable arm of society that primarily deals with:

  • Maintaining, troubleshooting of the interconnected computing machinery
  • Development of software applications that run over the networked systems
  • Maintenance of software systems for a glitch free operation
  • Research on various IT systems and applications towards sophisticated IT systems
  • Wireless communication and networks

  • Engagement with IT industry through funding, faculty and student internships etc.
  • Providing an environment for self-learning, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Programmes offered by the department

The department at present offers the following courses however has plans to offer new courses from academic session 2023-24.

  • 5-year Integrated M.Tech. programme in Information Technology termed as IMT where in the graduates are offered dual degree of B.Tech. in IT + M.Tech. in IT upon completion of the required credits. The programme has an intake of 129 students through JEE Mains and counselling through JOSAA.Early exit option is available as per the New Education Policy of Govt. of India. In such a case a candidate exits the programme with B.Tech. in IT.
  • 2-year M.Tech. programme in Computer Networks termed as M.Tech.(CN) with intake of 15 candidates admitted through CCMT.
  • Doctoral research leading to PhD in Information Technology in diverse domains of IT. Admission to this program is through Institute level selection process. The selected candidates are offered fellowship as per the norms applicable to institutes under Ministry of Education, Govt. of India.
