Information Technology is a fast growing technology and is being applied in almost all fields of activities. The opportunity for candidates in Information Science & Engineering is much higher compared to many other engineering courses.

Professionals from other domains who require large data intensive applications harness the power and flexibility provided by Information Science Engineering. As a result this branch integrates all the domains and is much sought after. These days we need connectivity of data across the globe and we need it at the click of the mouse. That is the challenge Information Technology has to meet. We need more sophistication in the way we can handle data and obtain information. Some critical application include: Office automation and accounting, expert systems for diagnostics, monitoring for live projects, online exams, results and decision support systems.

Career Options

Mainly in software companies, either in application or system software developments, web design, multimedia etc.,
