About Information Technology Engineering Department
Recent advancements in the areas of computers, software, networks, internet, communication technology, cloud computing etc. has made huge amount of information available to us. In this high-tech era, information is something without which industry and individuals cannot survive and their success depends on the ability to acquire accurate and timely information. Keeping this in mind FAMT started the Bachelor of Engineering program in Information Technology(IT) from academic session 2001-2002. Emphasis of B.E. in Information Technology curriculum is on Computer Science, Software Development, Networking, Communication, Web Engineering, Security, Multimedia processing, and Soft Computing. Specialized knowledge on the analysis and design of information systems is imparted. Currently the department’s infrastructure contains three classrooms, six laboratories, a staffroom, and a seminar hall. The computing facility in the department includes 155 computers with latest configuration, and other ICT equipments such as LCD projectors, printers and scanners. Recently in February 2017, thed department’s faculty members Dr. Vinayak A Bharadi and Prof. Santosh V Jadhav got a NVIDIA GPU Research Grant of Rs. 1.5 Lacs in the form of Titan X Pascal GPU(Graphics Processing Unit) to support research. Information Technology department has also got academic collaboration with NVIDIA for three subjects namely Soft Computing, Big Data Analytics, and Robotics. They will provide course material, and hardware support for conduction of these courses as well as bridge courses.
Students undergo on-field projects so that they can be prepared to face professional challenges. Recently from January 2017 to February 2017, students of final year have successfully published sixteen(16) research papers at various national/international conferences/journals. Research areas of published works are Cloud Computing, Ubiquitous Computing, Pervasive Computing, Soft computing etc. Besides this, students are given in house training of GATE examination, aptitude, and other competitive examinations.
The Department’s students body ‘Information Technology Student Association’ (ITSA) is actively involved in creating awareness about technological advancements amongst students. ITSA also coordinates and organizes various events like group discussions, online quizzes, workshops, seminars, and industrial visits that help students to keep themselves in tune of latest technological advancements. Besides this, ITSA also coordinates charity events such as blood donation, help to drought affected farmers etc.
The Department provides complete support to students for training and placement. IBM, Wipro Spectramind, Tata AIG, HCL, Patni Computer Systems, ICICI Infotech, TCS, Finolex Industries Ltd., Magneto-IT solutions, CNC Ltd., Config Solutions, Xento, and Bitwise solutions are some of the IT companies who are regular recruiters of IT students.
