As true visionaries would, the Jesuit Fathers of St. Xavier’s College proposed a computer training and computer awareness programme in the College in 1985. With the support of our generous alumni and other like-minded people, on the occasion of the 125th Anniversary of the College, St. Xavier’s Computer Centre was inaugurated on 4th November, 1985. On March 1, 2015, the Computer Centre was reinstituted as “Computer Centre and Central Computing Facilities”.
The importance of the Computer Centre cannot be overstated in the present context. In its existence of more than 35 years, it has continued to outgrow its own role. It started as a centre for students of this College and later went on to embrace general students too through the various professional courses. Thirty-five years ago, it was probably one of the very few institutes for computer training in Kolkata. The Computer Centre has immensely contributed to the society by providing quality education to the students and professionals of this great city and neighbourhood. Courses based on the latest technology and industry demands are offered to fulfil the need for qualified and skilled professionals.
