Information Science & Engineering -> Overview

Information science is an interdisciplinary field primarily concerned with the analysis, collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval, movement, dissemination, and protection of information. Information science is one of the important branches of PESCE, Mandya. The Department of Information science and Engineering takes pride in producing quality engineers over the past 23 years. The credit for all the flowery results goes to the highly motivating staff, from which all students draw inspiration.

The Department was started in the year 2000. The present intake of the undergraduate program is 60. The strength of an IS major lies in his/her ability to apply the knowledge of information systems and technology to help organizations compete more successfully in the marketplace or to streamline current operations. The focus of the department is to provide students with in-depth knowledge in the field of computer and information technology through the following two academic programs. This undergraduate curriculum emphasizes on theoretical and practical aspects of information science. The curriculum is designed to meet industry standard and cope with the fast changing technology. Extension lectures and industrial visits are organized frequently to provide an overview on recent and current trends of information technology. Apart from curriculum, the students are encouraged to participate in research projects, technical events, cultural activities and sports. The department has a strong coverage of alumni network to support curriculum development and career guidance for ongoing student batches. Our department faculty remains a constant source of inspiration to students in order to achieve outstanding results and excellent placement records.

The department has achieved good Placement, conducted International /National Conferences and other sponsored short-term courses, National seminars and symposia. Students from the department are recruited by top IT companies. The presence of our alumni at various organizations and reputed universities across the globe has helped our graduates to plan their future endeavors.
