To enhance the teaching-learning experience, and to automate processes, the College has implemented the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) In the following ways:
• DLP-equipped Classrooms
All the classrooms are equipped with DLP systems that enable Teachers to supplement traditional teaching methods with newer forms of learning. The teaching-learning experience can be made more effective by accessing and projecting internet content wherever necessary, or making MS PowerPoint presentations, or screening movies if required.
• Computer Labs
The College has 09 Computer Labs, with a seating capacity of approximately 30 to 40 students and a research laboratory for Ph.D in IT. They are used for conducting lectures and practicals of various courses.
• Networking Lab/Centre
A Networking Lab/Centre has been established in the Department of Physics with the funds received from DST. A Smartboard has been installed in the Centre, too. Currently, this Lab/Centre is used to conduct UG and PG practicals, and for seminars and workshops.
• Library — OPAC and N-LIST INFLIBNET
The College Library uses OPAC — Online Public Access Catalogue — to facilitate accessing the Library collection.
In addition, the Library has a membership N-LIST INFLIBNET, and members of the Teaching staff are issued with login ID’s and passwords to access these e-resources.
• Internet and LAN Connectivity
The Campus has access to the Internet via a leased line. Members of the Staff have access to the WiFi network, which was made operational in October 2013. This helps in the teaching-learning process as Teachers use the facility to access newer research in their subjects, or to access Internet content that may have a bearing on the syllabus, or may be of interest to their students. In addition, the WiFi network has helped in facilitating the performance of administrative duties.
All administrative areas of the College such as College Offices, Science Departments, as well as the Library, are linked via LAN, and this has helped to automate processes and increase efficiency. In addition, PCs and printers have been provided for use of the Teaching Staff in the HoD Cabin, staffroom and various Departments, and Committees have also been issued Laptops for the same purpose.
• MagicInfo Boards
Two MagicInfo Boards have been installed — one near the College entrance, and one on the First floor of the Main Building — to provide the latest important information about the College to all.
In an effort to provide maximum security to Staff and Students, CCTVs have been installed at various locations on Campus, and the footage is continually monitored.
