In 1985, the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established and in the year 1992, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering was started. The college changed its affiliation to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi in the year 1998 as per the Government notification. A postgraduate course in Management (MBA) was started in the year 2009, and the institution was renamed to Anjuman Institute of Technology and Management.
