  1. The Computer laboratories are networked using LAN by 32/16 bit switches. There was a college-wide network which provided internet connection through a single VPN connection from BSNL. Thereafter we have opted for the NME-ICT scheme of the Govt. of India. Under the NME-ICT Scheme the college has been provided with twenty landlines with Broadband connection which have been distributed in different departments including the library. Ten of these have wireless modem by virtue of which most of the lab-based departments already have a Wi-Fi enabled environment.
  2. Moreover work is in progress to set up a separate broadband network to make the entire campus Wi-Fi. The students can use the existing internet facility to download lectures uploaded as part of the NME virtual classroom project.
  3. As the institute has set up a Wi-Fi arrangement within the entire campus, all the nodes will have internet connectivity. At present, more than 50 computers are connected in the internet.
  4. E-learning resources are also used by many departments.
  5. Some of the UG and PG departments also use NPTEC course materials.
  6. The postgraduate students make extensive use of these facilities during their final year dissertation.

Considering the backdrop of the cross section of student’s the college was meant to cater to at its inception, making the learning activities and technologies deployed relevant and appropriate to the modern context, has been a great challenge. But the institution through sheer diligence and perseverance to excel in academic progress has achieved a lot.
