Computer Center has conducted training programs for 30 batches of socially backward students sponsored by Government of TamilNadu.
It also conducts training programs for the non-teaching staff and wards of the MIT staff, periodically.

Under community program with the aid of TEQIP grant a modernized lab has been set up which at present accommodate one complete batch per session which makes it very efficient for monitoring and helping the students.
