About the Department


Globally, the Information Technology (IT) sector is experiencing a surge in demand for skilled professionals, with technology playing a transformative role across diverse business domains. Our institution's Information Technology department offers a specialized program designed to cater to the evolving needs of businesses and create a pathway for students to embark on a rewarding career in IT. Aligned with the curriculum developed by Savitribai Phule Pune University, our degree program strikes a harmonious balance between theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experiments. This unique approach not only instils a robust foundation in IT concepts but also refines students' skills through real-world applications. Tailored for those with a keen ambition to excel in the IT sector, our program provides a comprehensive educational experience, catering to individuals passionate about mastering a diverse set of tools. With a commitment to staying abreast of the ever-evolving technological landscape, our approach is geared towards preparing students for the challenges and opportunities prevalent in the dynamic world of IT.

The Department of Information Technology at Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering and Research (PCCOE&R) was established in the year 2022-23 with an intake of 60 students in undergraduate degree programme.

PCCOE&R works on student-centric Four-Pillar philosophy which includes academic excellence, professional competence, research and innovation and social commitment.

Department runs a UG programme in Information Technology, which is 4 years, 8 semesters full time programme. Department has adequate number of self-motivated, experienced and qualified faculty members and supporting staff.

The department fosters a research and innovation-friendly atmosphere, providing students with guidance for publishing papers, filing intellectual property rights (IPRs), and creating products.

A variety of workshops, seminars, industrial training programs, guest lectures, and expert talks are regularly organized to enrich students' knowledge and keep them abreast of the latest technologies. The department has the Information Technology Students' Association (ITSA), which orchestrates a range of technical and non-technical activities to engage and empower students.
