Department Head's Message

Digital communication changes the world in every aspect. Network and security are the most significant pillars of all digital systems. Big data, cloud, and IoT (Internet of Things) have demanded a rapid expansion of technologies related to the networking and security field. The security of systems and communication is essential to build trust among users and improve commerce on the internet. In the current context, this has become more prominent, and a giant leap was taken forward by the ‘working and learning from home’ concept in humanity. NSBM welcomes all who want to triumph on the innovative technologies in the digital communication and security world to make our planet a better place for everyone.
