About the Department

The Under Graduate (UG) program of Information Technology was started in the year 1998 and Post Graduate (PG) program of Information Technology was started in the year 2009. The department has been re-accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2022 for a period of three years. The Department of Information Technology of Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science (HITS) provide high quality education programs by imparting comprehensive knowledge coupled with practical exposure, which is essential for software design, development and testing in the IT industry. The Department provides ample facilities in terms of software and hardware to enable the students to learn by doing. The curriculum is designed to cater to the needs of the industrial organization. It also enables the students to apply a design thinking approach to solve the social and industrial problems.

The world of information technology is rapidly growing, bringing in marvelous changes in day-to-day life that demands ever changing skill-set from the students. The department equips the students in sound foundational concepts that further enable them to adapt to changing technological needs. To expose latest trends to the students, value-added courses, MOOC, in-house seminars, workshops, industrial visits are conducted periodically. Hitsathon, and BreakSec are organized every year by the department’s Student Club members and professional society, to enhance the technical skills of the students.The Department offers a quality research training experience for its students as well as faculty. The Department also maintains its relevance to world-class research by collaborating with industry and business through local and international research networks.

The Department of Information Technology is actively working with many IT industrial institutions like NASSCOM, ACM and IEEE along with industries such as IBM, Infosys, HTC Global Services, Dlink and more. The Department has established Centers of Excellence in the area of Cyber Security and Machine Intelligence.

The Department has renowned faculties with international experience both in the industry and academics. The faculties are encouraged and well supported by the Department in performing innovative research. The faculties also engage with the industry by offering their services to solve their problems. The Department received National Level “Best Cyber Security Education Award of the year 2017” from Data Security Council of India (DSCI) for offering the cyber security courses and creating the cyber security awareness in the society through various events and activities.
