It is a powerful medium which led to IT revolution and today business organisations are highly dependent on internet for their day-to-day operations. Thanks to internet, information of huge volumes is exchanged within fraction of seconds. The fact that the data that is communicated through internet can be hacked by third party for personal gain or any other purpose acts as a serious threat to organisations.

Medium of Instruction


Nagpur University was established on 4th August, 1923 with six affiliated colleges and 927 students. In 1947, the number of students increased to about 9000, accompanied by the improvement and diversification of curricula and expansion in the range of subjects. The expansion of library and sports facilities occurred during these years for the intellectual and physical well-being of the students. It was in 1958 that some new Departments in Arts and Social Science faculties were opened. The major expansion, however, came in 1963 when several science and other teaching Departments were started. The Departments were shifted to spacious buildings in the main campus in 1972-73. In later years, several career-oriented courses such as Business Management, Fine Arts, Mass Communication, Library Science, Physical Education, etc., were started. During the ninety years of its existence, the University has progressed satisfactorily and has done well despite constraints of different sorts. The different Vice-Chancellors of this University and their futuristic vision of higher education have made this possible. Their determination and dedication has helped a lot in the progress of this University.

The applicants should have passed B.E (Electronics or allied, Computer Science or allied), B.Sc (IT, Electronics or CS, BCA or MCA or any other degree at undergraduate level with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects) in this university or an equivalent Bachelor Degree of any statutory university in India or abroad.
