Central IT College (CITC) situated in Dispur, Guwahati has completed a decade of excellence in the field of professional education. Acknowledged as the second largest institution of its kind in the entire country under the Sikkim Manipal University (SMU), this College has ushered in a new awakening in the field of affordable education which has by now become a benchmark for other similar institutions in the region.
The USP of CITC over the years has been the character building and leadership skill development that is imparted to its students in addition to the formal education and subjects in the curriculum. The College which was set up in 2001 has about 4,000 students on its rolls today. There are 85 professionally qualified teachers taking care of these students.
CITC has received national recognition from SMU for last four consecutive years and its students have also excelled in the fields of sports, music, literature and social service which put them in a class apart from their counterparts in other institutions.
At a function organised in the city on Saturday to flag off the year-long decade celebration of CITC, Dr Kulendu Pathak, former VC of Dibrugarh University, said, “I have been associated with CITC over the years, and as I see its growth I get the same kind of feeling that I got seeing my own children grow from infancy to childhood.” Former Chief Secretary of Assam, H. N. Das said, “65 per cent of India’s population today is below the age of 35. CITC is taking care of this important segment of Indians and its contribution, which is visible to the society, is noteworthy.”
T.G. Barua, MD of the Tribune Group of publications, who has been associated with the College for a long time, said, “CITC is providing high standard of professional education and since their teaching has resulted in ‘earning after learning’, it has brought joy to the students and their families.” A. Malik, former State Election Commissioner and Dr Anil Ch Ghosh, CEO, Bio-Technology Park, Guwahati also deliberated on the occasion.
Ten former students of CITC who are serving as executives in the corporate sector, two senior faculties and one administrative staff of the College were honoured at the function.
