A new society called “Knowledge Society” is emerging in the 21st century. An efficient utilization of the existing knowledge can create comprehensive wealth for the nation in the form of better health, education and infrastructure. Whether a nation has emerged as a knowledge society or not is judged by how effectively the country deals with knowledge creation, organization, dissemination and utilization.
The dedicated team of faculty is engaged in various minor research projects sanctioned by the University Grants Commission. Various research activities are also carried out in the Department in various specialization areas viz. Information Processing and Retrieval, Information Technology and Medical Information System.
Group discussions, seminars, group study, presentations and lectures are the teaching strategies which improve learner skills. Over-head projectors and power-point presentations strengthen the teaching aid. Students are encouraged to present and publish papers at national and international seminars and conferences.
