From HODs Desk
The Department of Information Science & Engineering was established in the year 1998-99. It is approved by the AICTE and is affiliated to V.T.U. Belgaum. It has a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The infrastructure of the department is well designed to provide all the necessary facilities like classrooms, auditorium and laboratories. The labs include Digital Systems Lab. and Research Lab. Systems Software Lab., Internet Network Technology Lab., Software Design and Consultancy Lab. and Computational Paradigms Lab, file structure lab
At ISE-BTLIT, we lay great emphasis on the emerging, interdisciplinary, csb1cutting-edge areas of research or educational needs. Our faculty members are already involved in interdisciplinary research efforts. We believe that this approach to teaching-learning, coupled with practical experience gained during Industrial Training and Practice School Project work in reputed organizations, equips our students
to handle the challenges posed by the IT industry. I am confident that you will find our students worthy of any organization. I ardently admire the Faculty and supportive staff who have worked in an exemplary team spirit to enable the Department to grow from strength to strength and hope they will continue with the same zeal in future too.
A very warm welcome to the department of Information science and engineering of BTLIT. We, faculty of ISE believe that teaching and learning is a continuous process. Hence we are providing a strong foundation in fundamental concepts and offering expertise and solving techniques ability towards the new technologies. ISE, BTLIT is offering best quality of technical education with senior most dedicated Professors and Industry experts in IT fields. We are providing the platform to the student community with the requisites know how far solving real time problems there by enabling them to enter the world of opportunities in the future

The Department maintains a library to meet the specific needs of its students. The total number of volumes and titles maintained is 65 each. The Department Library also keeps a record of all the project reports submitted by final year students in the reference section.
STUDENT and FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The Department takes special initiative for the development of all students by organizing programs and activities like Guest Lectures, Industrial Visits, In-Plant Training, Class Room Seminars, Personal Counseling, Technical Paper Presentations and Sports.
A batch of 20 students is counseled under the guidance of a faculty member. Counseling of students is done periodically. The Faculty members discuss with the students about their activities, performance in the examinations, results, etc.
Student association has a society called CAREER LAB. It involves all the placement activities, industry interactions and consultancy works.
Teaching and assessment
Our teaching was inspected by the government's Quality Assurance Agency in 2003 and we have been awarded the highest possible ratings in every area. We were given the maximum grade of 'highly commended' for the effectiveness of our learning and teaching, student achievement and progression, and the learning resources and facilities we provide. Teaching is delivered via a mixture of supervised laboratories, lectures, tutorials and exercise classes. We are one of very few computer science departments in the UK to have been awarded the highest possible ratings for our teaching.
Moreover, we are one of only 11 departments in the UK to have been assessed by the government as having internationally excellent research as well as excellent teaching.
In your first term you meet weekly with your Academic Adviser, to support your coursework and help you settle into the pattern of university life. In your final year, you carry out your degree project supervised closely by a member of staff on a topic of your choice. We offer a very wide range of final-year options, many of which include topics in current research.
Our graduates have an excellent recruitment record, with the vast majority finding employment or taking higher degrees within six months of leaving Birmingham. Career destinations include software engineering, computer consultancy and management. To further develop graduate opportunities for our students the department has recently appointed a Student Employment Liaison Officer.
Each year we organise job fairs, presentations from companies and a web-based directory of graduate recruiters. A number of blue-chip companies offer placement opportunities for our students.
You will also benefit from our research contacts within industry and from initiatives such as CERCIA, our centre for research and technology transfer in computational intelligence. We have good relationships with companies like BT, Thales, Hewlett-Packard, Honda, QinetiQ and Rolls-Royce.
