System and Network Administration

Periyar Maniammai Institute of Science and Technology (PMIST) recognizes the vital role information technology plays in the Institution's missions and related administrative activities as well as the importance in an academic environment of protecting information in all forms. As more information is used and shared in a digital format by students, faculty and staff, both within and outside the Institution, an increased effort must be made to protect the information and the technology resources that support it. Increased protection of our information and Information Technology Resources to assure the usability and availability of those Resources is the primary concern.

System and Network Administration is governing the use of PMIST computing and IT communication resources, the resources administered by the administrative departments such as Library, Computer Laboratories, Offices of the Institution, Hostels and Guest houses wherever the network facility was provided by the Institution.

Further, the entire faculty, students, staff, departments, authorized visitors/visiting faculty and others who may be granted permission to use the IT Infrastructure, and must comply with the guidelines. Certain violations of PMIST rules by any institution member may even result in disciplinary action against the offender by the institution authorities.
