Information Technology Infrastructure

altVIM firmly believes in the maximal use and full leveraging of Information and Communication Technology in all spheres of its activities.  Faculty and students are actively encouraged to use state of the art technologies in teaching, learning, research, and allied academic endeavours.  To facilitate this, VIM has built a world class ICT infrastructure comprising of high quality hardware, software and communication systems, over the past decade.

The institute provides high end laptops of industry standard configuration to students and faculty, along with LAN connections (both wired and wireless), in addition to 24/7 Internet connectivity.  These computers are networked via high-end blade servers and managed switches.  Two ISPs together deliver a total bandwidth of 7 MBPS (1:1);  this bandwidth ably supports the various services offered such as email, browsing, access to vital databases (online  as well as in-LAN), and several other resources on the institute’s intranet.  The institute has put in place Video-Conferencing facilities.  These facilities are used for class room functioning, group meetings, and virtual and interactive lectures and discussions.  Facilities such as laser printers, DVD writers and scanners are also available for peripheral support.

The institute’s a Computer Center labs,  nine class rooms with full ICT support, two hostel blocks having LAN connected PCs, amply enrich its academic machinery.  Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) equipment provide electric power in the event of power failure.

ICT has been effectively deployed at VIM for administrative functions too.  VIM’s sprawling 19.2 acre residential campus, is now fully connected, thanks to a Web Committee of projects undertaken and executed by VIM’s ICT team.
