About the Department

Information technology as a specialized sub-domain of computers science focuses on the application of the acquired computer science concepts. It mainly deals with the application of computer systems for storing, studying, transmitting, and manipulating available data or information.

Since its inception the department has been recognized for excellence in research and teaching. The department has a thriving research environment with active with active research groups in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Complex and Social Networks, Data and Web Mining, and software Engineering. Graduates from the department are frequently recruited by both academia and industry, and ex-students of the department occupy top positions in both
academia and industry all over the world.

HOD's Message

It gives me immense pleasure to present brief report of Department of Information of Technology. The Dept. of Information Technology, at the Guru Nanak Institute of Technology, Kolkata came into existence in the year 2007 for the benefit of Engineering, Science and Technology and the Nation on a larger scale. Since its inception, the department of Information Technology has welcomed scholars and enrolled students whose inclination towards creative inquiry changes how we interact with and understand the world. No matter what the technology, our students and faculty are committed to a passionate pursuit of knowledge. The department has a team of highly experienced and motivated faculty members who are in process of tuning the young minds to make them globally competitive. The strength of the department is highly motivated students who understand the dynamics of the industry and upgrade their skills accordingly. The scope of Information Technology is endless. The students of the Information Technology are highly demanded by the recruiters of the top companies. Depending upon the interest of the student, he/she may choose to go for higher studies or if employed can choose to do research, development, testing or management in the Information Technology industry. In our department we not only give emphasis on study but also apply our knowledge in understanding what computers. We organized various seminars/workshops/industry visits regularly to make familiar students with recent trend in IT Industry.

Among the reasons why our graduates are such favorites of industry is the consistent hands-on experience-based approach of our curriculum, our excellent laboratories, the long-time connections between Department and the industry. Whether you are a student, parent, prospective faculty member or a curious member of the public, I invite you to become part of the GNIT-IT family. We hope you will also have the opportunity to visit us in our state-of-the-art facilities.
