The progression of Information and Communication Technology is outpacing the expectations of humankind. Proliferation in the developments of Apps (Applications) and Robotics is astounding. E-Commerce is flourishing and growing at an astonishing rate. As a result, the academic institutes in the country are facing the challenge to produce qualitative engineers capable of delivering effective solutions in the above areas. Taking into account the needs of the industry and our institute's constant endeavor to produce entrepreneurs and employable IT engineers of high quality, the department continues to play an active role to achieve these objectives. In view of the above developments, the Information Technology Department imparts training to students through its well-equipped laboratories and infrastructure to make them competent to be able to devise innovative ideas to serve the society. In addition to imparting technical knowledge, the department also focuses on inculcating ethical values in students.

The department is one among very few to have its own students' association, ITSA (Information Technology Students' Association) with a broader objective of providing freedom to students so that they grow professionally in the technological environment. This has further encouraged them to organize and undergo training in the latest technologies.

Since its inception the IT Department holds the record of being one of the best Information Technology Departments in the University of Mumbai.
