Course Details (ISE)

Scope of the Branch:

  • Information Science is an interdisciplinary science primarily concerned with analysis, manipulation, storage, retrieval of information.
  • It is a broad field, incorporating not only the aspects of computer science, but often diverse fields such as communications, management, law etc.

Vision: : To irradiate budding engineers as leaders and excellent experts in information technology.


  • To maintain leadership in Information Technology, graduates will apply the technical knowledge for sustainable academic growth.
  • Achieving excellence through design, development and application of information technology in support of learning and research among students community.
  • Developing communication kill, leadership, qualities, team work and skills for continuing education among students.
  • To inculcate Ethics, Human values skills for solving societal problems and environmental protection amongst student’s community.
  • Promoting research, higher studies and entrepreneurship among the students.

Nagarjuna college of Engineering and Technology was established in the year 2001 with   Information Science & Engineering as one of the branch.  The college was affiliated to VTU and has been granted autonomous sates in the year 2015. So far 13 batches which were following the VTU SYLLABUS have gone out of the portal of the college. At present only final year batch is under affiliated system following the VTU SYLLABUS.  The remaining 1st, 2nd and 3rd year batches are following the curriculum of autonomous systems.
