Information Science & Engineering
Information Science and Engineering ( ISE ) also known as Information Technology ( IT ) is one of the predominant and very popular branches in the Engineering domain that was introduced by Visvesvaraya Technological University( VTU, Balagavi) in the year 1997-98.
Information Science and Engineering programme is predominantly similar to Computer Science and Engineering(CSE) programme but with the exception of a couple of subjects/courses which differ from CSE.
"Information Technology” is the key of current digital world. The cloud computing, Social Media , Business prediction using Data Science. Mobile Apps, e-Learning and e-Commerce all works on the the platform of Information Technology and become essential part of our life. IT is the basic requirements of today’s society and used widely in all the sectors of the economy. Thus , Information Technology(IT) or Information Science and Engineering is the force that is driving the current and future of the world.
A degree in Information Science and Engineering will provide a wide range of opportunities to choose from the job opportunities such as Software Engineer, IT Manager, Software Tester, Application Developer, Web designer etc in various sectors such as Computer Industry, Financial Services Sector, Telecommunication Industry, Biotechnology industry, e-commerce Services across the world .
