Computer Science is at the forefront of technological advancements and thus we have an onus to be amongst the torch bearers. Thus, In the School of Computing and IT, every effort is made to keep pace with modern pedagogical practices and emerging paradigms like MOOC, Moodle, webinars; the tools/aids for modern teaching; ever-evolving syllabi keeping pace with technological advancement and industry trends etc. At SCIT, we strive to imbibe the virtues of Manipal education system amongst the newly inducted faculty. The depth of subject knowledge is major objective of the research work thus keeping abreast of technology frontiers.
The research work in the most popular areas is being nurtured through internal research grants and sponsored project funding. To prepare students for immediate work, an exposure is offered through opportunities in such research work during the final semester for UG and final year for the PG students. We also attempt to enrich the laboratory work through interaction with industry collaborations by way of expert lectures and lab exercises drawn from projects running in field.
The school is one of the biggest in MUJ with three degree courses and the commensurate numbers of experienced faculty. Having its first batch just out a year ago, we have long way to go in terms of establishing SCIT as one of the best schools amongst it’s peers in India. I wish the students of SCIT would reflect the quality and dedication of its faculty, latest and relevant syllabi of courses, and state of the advanced infrastructure like laboratories and their modern content.

School of Computing & Information Technology has Postgraduate programs in four Computer Science and Information Technology specialisations. Doctoral programs are very popular, with a substantial number of research scholars, both full time and part-time on the rolls. The School has a highly qualified and motivated faculty in its two Departments. The faculty is not only engaged in teaching and research, but also offers its expertise through various Conferences, Seminars and Workshops, to private and public sector industry employees as well as to various government agencies.
The teaching and research work at the School is amply supported by Central facilities such as the Central Library, Central Computing Facility and Central Instrumentation Facility. The School is geared to prepare students to meet the ever-increasing technological and social challenges with traditional self-discipline, hard work, all-round personality development and a creative approach to solve problematic issues. We also promote and nurture the spirit of innovation and enterprise in our students from the first semester itself, so as to enable them, not only to be industry ready, but also to be job creators, not just job seekers, when they graduate. To this end, we have engaged with industry to provide a flexible and interdisciplinary, credit-based curricular structure to students. SCIT has collaborative programs for students and faculty, with IT giants like Microsoft IT Academy, EMC2, Nvidia, Intel, etc. The School also provides ample opportunity and encouragement to its students to participate in various sports and other extra and co-curricular activities, to help them develop a well-balanced personality.
