The C. N. Computer Centre was established in 1996 as a response to the growing importance of computer literacy. It was decided to develop the Computer Centre as a common resource for the students of all the institutions on the campus. Located at a central and accessible location, the Centre caters to more than 3500 students every year.
The key mandate of the Computer Centre is to cater to the students of C. N. schools –Standards III to XII. The Centre has devised its own curriculum based on the one prescribed by the State Education Department. The Computer Centre is an authorized centre for the NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ELECTRONICS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (NIELIT), (erstwhile DOEACC society) courses administered by ministry of IT, Government of India. Through this accreditation, the Centre is authorized to offer two courses viz. 1) ‘O’ level and 2) CCC’ Course.
Engineering software like Computer Aided Design (CAD) are used to train students from the Technical Centre and multimedia-based software are used to train the students of Fine Arts College. The school students are imparted computer skills through various educational software applications.
The Computer Centre also offers professional courses in website designing, Desktop Publication (DTP), 2D 3D Animation and Multimedia round the year which are open to the larger society.
