B.Tech. | Information Technology (Cloud Technology and Information Security)

Programme Overview

What is Information Technology?

Information Technology refers to the study or use of computers to store, retrieve and transfer data. An information technology system refers to a computer system which encompasses the hardware and software components. Information technology also refers to the application of technology to solve business problems.

Who should study Information Technology?

In a world where everything is run by technology, IT is one of the most-sought after sectors by students these days. If you enjoy keeping up with the rapid advancements in technology and improvising upon it, then IT is the best field for you. IT allows you to choose from a number of different career paths based on your interest such as a web developer, systems analyst, information security analyst and more.

What will I study in this course?

B.Tech in Information Technology is a technology-intensive programme that enables students to learn and understand a broad range of information technology courses such as computer software, software and hardware interfacing, networking, operating systems, system programming, web development, database, scripting and many more. With CMR University being one of the best information technology colleges in Bangalore, it aims to bridge the gap between curriculum and industry to make learning fun and more interesting. The programme includes various domains such as network security, Internet of Things and mobile application projects, system software, software development, risk management, advanced cyber forensics, data analytics, artificial intelligence and biometric security. The specialisations offered are Cloud Computing Technology and Information Security

What are the career opportunities after the completion of this course?

As a graduate of this programme, the students have a plethora of career opportunities to choose from, such as an IT Engineer, software engineer, Network Engineer, Debugging Specialist, Testing Engineer and many more.

Students can further enhance their knowledge/skills by obtaining an “Honours” degree, for which they need to earn 20 additional credits. The courses offered for the “Honours” programme are integrated into the programme structure.

Laboratory

Data Structures Lab

The lab is equipped with 24 systems that are configured with latest Ubuntu operating system. The lab is mainly used for programming using C, C++ for courses like Data Structures, Programming with C and Analysis of Algorithms. In this lab students implement data structures like Linked List and Array List, and use them to implement sorting and other algorithms. These exercises will help them to explore the effect of data structures on the complexity of the algorithms and also create suitable data structures for a specific application

Programming with Python

The lab is equipped with 27 systems of which 3 systems areconfigured with Windows 10.0 and the rest loaded with Ubuntu operating system. It is mainly used to teach programming using python for project based course like “Programming with Python”. The objective of the lab is to make students choose libraries of available components, and to use these for building their own software.

Programming for problem solving Lab

The lab has 25 systems all of which are configured to boot either Windows 10.0 or Ubuntu operating system. It is mainly used for programming using C, C++, Java, python, Mobile Application development using Android Studio etc. This lab is also used by students to develop and implement their mini projects. Here, students acquire skills to solve computing problems useful in real-world.

Data Structures and Algorithms Lab

The lab has 22 systems, of which 10 are configured with Windows 10.0 and the rest with Ubuntu operating system. This lab is used to support programming using C, C++, Java, python, Mobile Application development using Android Studio etc. The major objective of this lab is to teach problem analysis and design of algorithms. The solution provided must also be optimum i.e., time complexity and space complexity of the solution shall be minimized.

Programming with Java Lab

The lab has 22 systems that are configured with Ubuntu operating system. It is used for programming with Java for courses like object oriented programming, programming with Java etc. Students trained in this lab are able to apply object-oriented concepts to developsoftware applications. Students are taught to design, using good design principles with consideration for software reuse and maintainability.

Database Management System Lab

The lab has 22 systems allconfigured with Ubuntu operating system. It is mainly used for developing database applications using MYSQL. The major objective of this lab is to provide a strong formal foundation in database concepts, technology and practice to the participants to groom them into proficient database application developers. The overriding concern, therefore, is to include just enough concepts and theory to motivate and enrich the practical component, and to include technology component to maximize the relevance of the course to the industry without sacrificing the long-term objectives of rigor and foundational strength that can withstand the vagaries of technological advances.

Assessment and Evaluation

The University follows Choice Based Credit System (CBCS), which provides choice for students to select from the prescribed set of courses and earn credits. Students are awarded grades based on their performance for each courses in a semester and Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), which is a measure of academic performance of a student in a semester. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is used as a measure of overall cumulative performance of a student over all semesters. However, the CGPA is invariably calculated from second semester onwards to facilitate students to know their academic progress.

Every Programme has a prescribed Curriculum or the Scheme of Teaching and Evaluation. It prescribes all the courses/ laboratory/ other requirements for the degree and sets out the nominal sequence semester wise. Curriculum also includes SWAYAM and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), offered by premier institutions. A student desirous of additional exposure to a course, without the rigors of obtaining a good grade, ‘audits’ a course that helps him to have an edge over others in placements.

The evaluation system to assess the student is comprehensive and continuous during the entire period of Semester, by the faculty who is teaching the course. Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) and Semester End Examination (SEE) constitute the major evaluations prescribed for each course, with only those students maintaining a minimum standard in CIE are permitted to appear in SEE of the course. CIE and SEE to carry 50% weightage each, to enable the course to be evaluated for a total of 100 marks, irrespective of its credits.

Before the start of the Academic session of each semester, a faculty may choose for his course Internal Assessment Test and a minimum of two of the following assessment methods with suitable weightage for each: Assignments (Individual and/or Group), Seminars, Quizzes, Group Discussions, Case studies/Case lets, Practical orientation on Design Thinking, Creativity & Innovation, Participatory & Industry-integrated learning, Practical activities / problem solving exercises, Class presentations, Analysis of Industry/Technical/Business Reports, Reports on Guest Lectures / Webinars / Industrial Visits, Industrial / Social / Rural projects, Participation in Seminars/ Academic Events/Symposia, etc. or any other academic activity.

The Semester End Examination for all the courses for which students registered during the semester shall be conducted at the end of each semester. Some of the courses, where the student performance is evaluated through CIE, may not have SEE.

The makeup examination facility shall be available to those students who have appeared and failed in the SEE in one or more courses in a semester.
