Information technology is a branch of engineering that involves the study of utilization of computers and telecommunications in order to gather, store, control and disseminate information. Both software and hardware sectors are included in IT. Due to the importance and popularity of IT, the current age is sometimes referred to as Information Technology Age. Availability of trained and proficient professionals makes India one of the popular places for career in IT.

Several IT companies in India and abroad hire well-qualified and skilled IT professionals. Application of Information Technology can be used in many sectors, including in banking business, health and medicine, railways, agriculture, forensic science and education.

Computing professionals might find themselves in a variety of environments in academics, research, industry, government, private and business organizations — analyzing problems for solutions, formulating and testing, using advanced communications or multi-media equipment, or working in teams for product development.

Artificial Intelligence – Develop computers that simulate human learning and reasoning ability.

Information Technology – Develop and manage information systems that support a business or organization.

Software Engineering – Develop methods for the production of software systems on time, within budget, and with few or no defects.

Operating Systems and Networks – Develop the basic software computers use to supervise themselves or to communicate with other computers.

Software Applications – Apply computing and technology to solving problems outside the computer field – in education or medicine.
