ICT Development Cell

ICT Development Cell

To keep abreast with the changing dynamics of information technology in higher education, Shillong College felt the need to create its own website and the Department of Computer Science & Applications was given the responsibility to take up the task. In 2010 the Shillong College Website was thus created by Shri B. Mukhim & Smt. A. Mitri, faculties of the department. The Department of Computer Science & Applications would monitor and update information on the website in close coordination with the IQAC Coordinator. Later on in 2011-12, the college established the Website Maintenance Cell which was then renamed as the Website Maintenance and ICT Development Cell on 24th May, 2018.
