Department of Computer Science and Information Technology established in 1990. The CS&IT Department, since its inception, has maintained a steady growth in every sphere of its activities and played an important role in bringing a vibrant and forward looking academic environment within the College. It is a premier Department offering high quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as providing an excellent infrastructure and facilities for research and consultancy. The department serves the growing need of manpower with specialization in Computer Science, Applications and Information Technology.
The faculty members of the Department have already published a large no. of research papers in different National & International Journal and Conference Proceedings in last twenty-two years. The Department of Computer Science & Information Technology came in the existence in 1990 with computer science as one of the optional subject at UG level (B.Sc.) with very limited infrastructure. The department dared to cope with the I.T. Market requirements. It is said that,” well began is half done “, at an infant stage it started giving a flying color’s output. With the increase in demand of this young technology, we started Master Degree’s in Computer Science (M.Sc. C.S.), Information Technology (M.Sc. I.T.) and Computer Management (M.Sc. C.M.)
In 1995 Dr. N.V. Kalyankar has took over as Head of Department. He is now Principal of the college. He was the Chairman Board of Studies (BOS) in Computer Science for 1995 to 2008 & was Academic Council Member, was Member of Board of Studies in Secondary & Higher Secondary Education, Research Recognition Committee (RRC) member presently he is Senate Member, Member Management Council, of SRTMU Nanded, He has participated in many workshops & presented papers in National and International Conferences, Seminars. He was instrumental in framing the syllabi of various under graduate & post graduate courses like BCS ,BCA, M.Sc.(Computer science) M.Sc.( Information technology),M.C.M /M.Sc.(Computer Management). He has delivered lectures & talks on various topics from Computer Science, Computer Management and Information Technology.
The department of Computer Science has produced so many scholars so far. During last 10-15 years the Department is giving continuously a good result with over 20 University Rankers at P.G. level. Not only ex- student of the Department are now working on good positions in various fields but also ex-staff members of the Department have got better positions elsewhere in India and abroad. Educational tours are regularly arranged for all courses so that the students can visit and get information from various IT centers in India. All the members of Department of Computer Science participate with enthusiasm in conducting co-curricular activities. The members of the department are currently actively involved in research work in computer science. From 2001-2002 to the Department has introduced Computer Science subject to Arts faculty students. The Department has arranged several times Computer Literacy/ Trainer courses for students as well as for teachers and non teaching staff of the college. Currently 17 Full Time and 02 CHB staff members are working in the Department having Ph.D. (Computer Science), Ph.D. (English) M.Phil.( Computer Science), M.Phil.( Information Technology), M.Phil.(English), M.Sc. (Computer Science), M.Sc.(Computer Application), M.Sc.(Electronics) and M.Sc.( Statistics), M.A.(English) qualification.
Well equipped and very systematically arranged computer labs are one of the greatest achievements of the department. This has become the central point of academics and knowledge provider for students due to outstanding activities, right from training, software development, E-learning facility and conducting online examination. In 1998 Department started the facility of internet using dial up (PSTN) connection for the students of Post graduate level. Looking towards its heavy utilization and demand, department decided to launch next upgraded internet facility that was ISDN with 128 kbps speed provided to all students of this college on 24 machines using Local Area Network (LAN). Considering the strength of students having awareness of internet technology the facility ISDN was insufficient, College started to search for the better technology which will useful and enough for the staff, research scholars and students of this college with leased line. The U.G.C. C.P.E. has offered budget to the college and college utilized some of it to establish network unit covering entire campus that incorporates fiber optic and UTP cat6 cables. College has established a campus-wide network and thereby providing internet connectivity in the institute. Students of this generation need to be more informed in the era of information technology. It has become important for every student to get himself aware of the latest technology in the corresponding field and make use of information technology in general and internet in particular.
Department is rich in terms of students, courses, facilities and qualified staff with 01 Research Center for Ph.D. (Computer Science), 03 PG Courses, 04 UG Courses, over 1000 students studying and 17 +(02 Contributory ) staff members. 07 Staff members are Ph.D. 08 Staff members are M.Phil, 04 Staff Members doing research for their Ph.D. and 03 Staff Members doing research for their for their M.Phil. The department has organized Two International Conferences in Computer Science. 1st International Conference in Computer Science on “Emerging Trends in Computer Science, Communication and Information Technology”CSCIT2010 during 09-11 Jan 2010 and 2nd International Conference in Computer Science on “Emerging Trends in Computer Science, Communication and Information Technology”CSCIT2015 during 09-11 Feb 2015. The students of the department have organized Three University level Conferences in Computer Science. 1st University Level Students Conference in Computer Science for UG & PG Students- YMITFEST 2008, 2nd University Level Students Conference in Computer Science for UG & PG Students- YMITFEST 2009 and 3rd University Level Students Conference in Computer Science for UG & PG Students- YMITFEST 2013.
