Department of Information Technology
The Department of Information Technology of MEA Engineering College was established in 2002 by the affiliation of University of Calicut. The department is now affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (APJKTU).
The study of computing is the study of the process of abstraction and its power, the practice of design and method of best implementation, mathematical theory of computation and its limits. The list of knowledge areas at the undergraduate level thus include Discrete Structures, Algorithms and Complexity, Computational Theory, Computer Architecture, Programming Language Theory and Implementation, Database Systems, Operating Systems, Net-centric Computing and Software Engineering. Emphasis is also given to hardware architectural design and software system design. A set of elective courses addressing the advanced topics and applications are also offered at the senior level. The UG curriculum pays great attention to laboratory work to consolidate the theoretical concepts and their applications to solve real-life problems in diverse domains.
The fast changing scenario in Information Technology necessitates the Department to actively extend its research and development activities. The current research interests of the Department include major areas of research in Information technology.
