Assistant Professor and HOD Incharge

Emerging technologies and innovations are key for us to become successful in this age. We all know the criticality of “Information”. Though we use the word Information in a lose context, Claude Shannon defined Information Entropy and gave a formula to calculate a numeric value of it giving birth to Information Theory. A lot has happened since then in terms of coding, processing, communicating, storing, and securing Information. The branch of study of Information Science and Engineering is still nascent though Information is at the foundation of most of the emerging technologies including Artificial Intelligence. This department aims to contribute to a systematic development of this field of Information Science and Engineering both in its deep theoretical rigor as well as spinning out broad emerging technologies of immediate value to people and businesses. Towards this we have a hybrid mix of appropriate people, innovative processes, and leading technologies to create, continually improve, and effectively deliver the program of Information Science and Engineering. Students going through this program will develop the capability to make sense of information, model it for organizations to provide maximum utility while assuring the security and privacy of information, which is critical in the world moving towards artificial intelligence. The world is just beginning to know the importance of these attributes. If you are interested, we urge you to join us to ride this wave for the benefit of all stakeholders.


To create an ecosystem that empowers human intelligence through information science and engineering for sustainable development.


  • Nurture human capabilities in emerging areas with strong foundational knowledge, through a harmonious, stable, and dynamic process of synchronization with changing technology landscape
  • Build multidisciplinary network of competent people to solve global challenges by providing innovative, integrated, and impactful solutions.
