TAPMI firmly believes in the maximal use and full leveraging of Information and Communication Technology in all spheres of its activities. Faculty and students are actively encouraged to use state of the art technologies in teaching, learning, research, and allied academic endeavours. To facilitate this, TAPMI has built a world class ICT infrastructure comprising of high quality hardware, software and communication systems, over the past decade.
The institute provides high end laptops of industry standard configuration to students and faculty, along with LAN connections (both wired and wireless), in addition to 24/7 Internet connectivity. These computers are networked via high-end blade servers and managed switches. Two ISPs together deliver a total bandwidth of 10 MBPS (1:1); this bandwidth ably supports the various services offered such as email, browsing, access to vital databases (online as well as in-LAN), and several other resources on the institute’s intranet. The institute has put in place Video-Conferencing facilities at its Manipal as well as Bangalore (TAPMI-CEE) centers – both IP-based and via ISDN. These facilities are used for class room functioning, group meetings, and virtual and interactive lectures and discussions. Facilities such as laser printers, DVD writers and scanners are also available for peripheral support.
The institute’s two Computer Center labs, a systems lab, a digital library, ten class rooms with full ICT support, three hostel blocks having LAN connected PCs, amply enrich its academic machinery. Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) equipment and two diesel generators provide electric power in the event of power failure.
