DIRECTORATE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Home > Directorates > Directorate of Information Technology

Overview

For the first time in the history of SU, a proper Directorate of IT (DIT) has been initiated and founded by Prof. Dr. Ishtiaq Ahmed Ch (Vice Chancellor) on 17 May, 2019. The main purpose of this office is to provide all range of technological support and direction to the university and its departments. Establishment of this office was considered to be the backbone of the SU as the the world is running technologically fast and the universities which are not able to upgrade their processes with the state of art advent of technologies would remain behind in the continuous run of technology and modern equipped processes. Most of universities across the country are still running with explicit operations but the SU has upgraded its different offices, branches, and departments with digital operations like online admission & enrollment, digital affiliation and registration branches, online lecturing and proper LMS with online examination and assessment, course evaluation tool to measure the quality of teaching, automated solution for facilitation centre, data centre, building and works department, and the electronic request and complain processing (ERCP) for all the academic departments and human resource offices, online admission to ADP & M.A/M.Sc programs, etc. The staff of Directorate of IT strives quickly, courteously and effectively to meet all the technology needs and facilitates the innovative use of technology in support of learning and creative endeavor. The directorate also provides mobile walk-up support to the university community for connecting to SU Data Centre over wireless networks and using supported applications. I conclude with a believe that soon the SU will become the leading university with equipped technology not only for itself but for other universities as well and will become a hub for technology in academic business.

Vision

Office of the Directorate of IT will have a transformative impact directly on SU and indirectly to other universities through continual innovation in technology, researching issues, creative solutions, and entrepreneurship.
