Smart boards and projectors are recently installed in all classes, but almost all professors restrain themselves from using it for reasons unknown to me. The library is a little out of sorts; sometimes important books are not available. There is an adequate number of hostels and construction of new girls' hostel is recently finished and that of boys' hostel going on scheduled to be finished within one year. Apart from hostel foods, there are some canteens and restaurants within college premises who provide reasonably good food at affordable price.
The Institute possesses state-of-art computing facilities. The Institute has a Computer Centre as a central computing facility for the students, scholars and the teachers of the Institute. The Centre has necessary infrastructure like sufficient number of Computer Hardware and Software,air-conditioned space and stabilized uninterrupted power supply as well as trained technical manpower.In addition, the Institute has developed two state-of-art CAD Laboratories to train the students on Computer Aided Design.
Apart from the above each academic department has its own Computer Laboratory with a sizeable number of PCs and Workstations running specialised engineering and scientific packages, like MATLAB, AUTOCad, STADD, IDEAS, PSpice, ANSYS, AFS, Sybase and PowerBuilder.
The whole Institute including the Students' Hostels and the residential area of the Faculty is connected by a campuswide LAN using high speed Fibre Optic/UTP cables. The LAN is managed by High Level Switches and a host of Servers. The Switches are connected by Fibre Optic Cables to Switches located in different academic departments, students' hostels and residential areas of the Institute. The Switches cater to a whole lot of nodes in different locations as mentioned. In additon to this, the Administrative Offices and the Library have separate local networks running Windows Server. The Library is fully computerised using LibSys software. The Institute has a dedicated 54 Mbps (34 Mbps BSNL+ 20 Mbps Reliance Comm) 24X7 Internet Connectivity, which serves the Institute Internet needs.
