Information Technology

About The Department

The Web has changed the way the world looks at information. The expanding role of IT in business, science, government, social structures, and personal lives is obvious in the current generation. As an academic discipline, IT focuses on meeting the needs of users within an organizational and societal context through the selection, creation, application, integration, and administration of computing technologies.

Agni College of Technology is one of the Top Information Technology Engineering Colleges in Chennai affiliated with Anna University. This department is also accredited by the NBA

Research & Consultancy

Research in the department focuses on creating and evaluating, innovative learning experiences, inspired by educational principles and technical progress. The approach is to use technology to help mediate a constructive dialogue between the learner, instructor and subject matter.

Researchers focus on the management of IT, the IT-enabled enterprise, technology-intensive user environments, and the increasingly global nature of IT use and production. As Information Security is one among the strongest research areas of the faculty, the IT Department has proposed to start a research centre in the field of Information Security.
