The department of Information Technology Engineering, established in 2001 provides one of the best learning opportunities to students with its contemporary course design and curriculum encompassing not only Information Technology but also covering key of Communication Technology and by providing state-of-art learning resources. The department currently offers an AICTE approved Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and is affiliated to the Gujarat Technological University.
The faculty comprising of 11 permanent, qualified teaching faculty supported by lab assistants who are committed towards nurturing young IT professionals of next generation. The department has three laboratories which are equipped with latest computer systems and other resources like laptops, projectors, pocket PCs and wireless devices in addition to a constant Internet access facility for students’ project work.
Academic results of Information Technology Department, SCET regularly top among GTU affiliated Engineering colleges of the South Gujarat Zone. The I.T. Department regularly organizes seminars, guest lectures, workshops, short term trainings and programming contests for students to expand their knowledge and skill set beyond the regular curriculum. We encourage our students to work on innovative and industry-applicable projects so that they can become the most highly sought after I.T. graduates in the country.
