Department of Information Science & Engineering

Department Overview

The Department of Information Science & Engineering established in the year 2000, offers an undergraduate programme in Information Science & Engineering under the affiliation of Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.

CMRIT follows a long tradition of teaching excellence where the faculty members and students in the department work closely together in an open, collegial atmosphere. In order to enrich the students with lifelong learning and applying skills in various outcome-based projects, the department organises various global tech events like Hackathons, Quizzes, and coding competitions to imbibe coding spirits in young minds.

With VTU’s curriculum, the department gives equal emphasis on both theoretical and experimental hands-on learning in Information Technology, the department has tied up with various organizations and regularly organizes various activities like industry visits, technical talks, and real-time projects to hone the students’ technical skills and personality development. The department also supports the students in equipping them with industry-ready skills by conducting various workshops and training related to placements.

The department actively encourages the students with student-centric activities by providing them with job-ready training from basic to advanced level with its exclusive Infosys campus connect program.

Some of the active events organized by the department

  • Conducting Mock Interviews to juniors from seniors
  • Encouraging students to organize and participate in various student clubs
  • Organizing experience sharing talks by previously placed students
  • Organizing Hackathons/ Codeathons

Accreditation, Approvals and Recognition:

The Department of Information Science & Engineering is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and is permanently affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum in Karnataka. The National Board of Accreditation (NBA) has accredited the department in the year 2008 with re-accreditation in 2012 and subsequently in 2017.
