The Department of Applied Information Technology is currently going through an extensive process of change and development.

The department has evolved from a union with the "IT University" (ITU). The objective was to build a strong academic institution by bringing together most of the IT related research and education in the greater Gothenburg area under one organization. During several years, a significant number of research groups, discontinued departments, sub-departments, and individual researchers, were transferred from other parts of the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers to ITU to become part of an increasingly multi and trans disciplinary academic environment.

From 2001 until the end of 2008, the department was completely embedded in the IT University and did not resemble a regular department with a conventional structure, roles, functions and responsibilities were interimistic. A strategic and goal oriented process was initiated in 2009 and characterized the efforts to form a coherent integrated department between University of Gothenburg and Chalmers.

On April 30 2017 the formal integration ceased and at present the department is a University of Gothenburg department only.

During 2018 a masssive recruitment process was initiated and the academich work force grew with over ten percent.

In 2019, a new division was formed; Human-Computer Interaction.
