Department of Information Technology

Information Technology deals with the gamut of Electronic Technology and software which can be used to transmit, receive, store and process information in digital form. Sustained developments in the area have made it possible to process information at speeds which were thought impossible few years ago. GCET was the pioneer in India to appreciate the importance of Information Technology and established a four year bachelor degree program in 1996-97 with an intake of 60 students. Department started post graduate course ME in Information Technology program under Gujarat Technological University (GTU) from the academic year 2011-12. From academic year 2020-21, the GCET is now one of the constituent colleges of CVM University. The Undergraduate program in the Department of Information Technology has been accredited by National Board of Accreditation since July 2015 for two years.

The Department has state-of-art laboratories with latest configuration PCs and required software, to run the experiments as prescribed in the curriculum. The Department has also signed MoU with industry to stay in touch with ongoing technologies in the domain of Information Technology. The Department organizes Expert Talk, Seminar, Workshop and Short Term Training Program (STTP) by calling the distinguished experts from the industry and reputed institutes across the country for grooming the students with cutting edge knowledge along with their regular study. The Department has organized one National and Three International Conferences in the domain of Information Technology.

Many renowned alumni of the department are either holding respectable position in industries like Infosys, Wipro, IBM, Intel, Capegemini, Microsoft, Tech Mahindra etc. or have opted for higher studies across the globe. Students of the department with the help of faculty members have developed user friendly software such as Online Feedback system, Library system and GCET Information System (GIS). The faculty members and students are also involved in Research and Development Activity.
