Furthermore, the college is also going to launch different applications built by the students to increase the efficiency of the college administration and activities. It is going to launch LMS (Library Management System) which will ease the library management. Students will actually be able to book the required books from their home.

With this application, the teachers will be able to take attendance in tablets and administration will be notified at the same time about the students who are absent for the class. In the college, every student has his/her own dream projects which will be converted into real products during their study of 4 years.

Hence, DWIT is progressing exponentially to meet its goal of becoming the best IT college in Asia. Being heralded as the best BSc. CSIT college in Nepal, it is striving to live up to its title. Certainly, not everything is completely perfect. Thus, it is working to get the small problems in the list fixed immediately. If it overcomes all of its setbacks it will keep its position and even rise up to become one of the bests in Asia. If it ignores them, it will fall down from its throne.
