State of Art IT infrastructure and communication facilities make the Campus well connected and gives students and faculty facility to engage with relevant communities around the world.
The main campus and its two annexes are connected with high speed optical fibre backbone. The campus LAN is supported by both wired and wireless infrastructure. The wired infrastructure is built over robust equipments with enhanced security features. The entire campus is covered by a modern wireless mesh network (WMN), which supports reliable communication from any part of the campus. High speed Internet connectivity is thus available across all hostel rooms through the wireless infrastructure. The gateway to outside campus is built in the form of 1 Gbps Internet leased line connection from National Knowledge Network, India.
Interaction with resource persons from outside is facilitated through high resolution video conferencing using both IP as well as ISDN networks. In addition to traditional but high resolution equipments, the Institute has also procured multiple licenses for software based video conferencing solution which supports many to many multicast communication over ordinary broadband connection using simple equipments like laptops with webcams.
The entire business process of the organization is automated with the help of Oracle PeopleSoft enterprise resource planning solution. The Institute has implemented modules related to student lifecycle, finance and accounting, human resources, stores and inventory, etc. The entire records of the institute are thus maintained online, allowing all concerned to access the necessary services without the limitations of office hours. In addition, each course is provided with its own portal, allowing the participants to download the resources at leisure, anytime and from anywhere. These portals also allow and encourage participants to carry on discussions on various topics of interest, thus extending learning process across the available 24 hours.
All the class rooms are aesthetically designed with high tech infrastructure. Each class room has an interactive white board with Internet connectivity. This relieves the participants from jotting down class notes, and instead concentrate on the discussion. The class jotting on the board can be mailed to the email accounts of the participants after the class. The classes are also provided with high speed wireless internet connectivity, so that necessary literature from different databases can be downloaded to enhance classroom discussion. Most of the class rooms are also provided with microphone facilities. These classrooms are also equipped with videoconferencing facilities.
To support the software requirements of students, the Institute has a campus agreement with Microsoft whereby licenses for latest versions of operating system and office productivity tools are provided to each participant. In addition, licensed reputed antivirus programs are provided to all laptops in the campus. This discourages piracy, which is in line with the Institute’s endeavor to nurture managers with ethics.
