Department Of Computer Science & IT

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering and Information Technology is a lively and invigorating academic centre for higher education, research, and innovation in key areas of computing. The vision of the department is to be a centre of excellence that provides high quality education to develop future leaders in all aspects of computing including education and entrepreneurship, contributes practically relevant and cutting edge research, and catalyzes IT entrepreneurship.

The driving mission for the department is to:

  • conduct high quality education and research in scientific, technological, engineering, mathematical, entrepreneurial, human, educational, and interdisciplinary aspects of computing
  • graduate world-class computing professionals at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels with imagination and competence to  identify and solve significant problems in industry and society through leadership and innovation
  • engage in academic leadership activities such as development of academic and computational resources and organization of faculty development programs, conferences, workshops,  etc
  • collaborate with industry, government, and community to stimulate entrepreneurship and sustainable development through innovative IT solutions.

The department attracts talented students and faculty from all over India. The main endeavour of the department is develop students’ technical competence as well as creative and critical thinking ability. The department provides the students with a platform to develop insight to face real life challenges and to come out with innovative technical solutions. The students are trained in theoretical, systemic, as well as applied aspects of contemporary computing. They are frequently evaluated with multiple assignments, hands on exercises, mini projects, surprise tests, group activities and presentations as they progress through the different programs in the department. The department uses a diversified set of pedagogical approaches that includes interactive lectures, case studies, group discussions, etc.

The team consisting more than eighty dedicated and well qualified faculty members to facilitate high standard of teaching, learning and evaluation process. These faculty members are also involved in research work attaining research publications in repute international conferences and journals.

Course Curriculum is continuously improvised by taking the inputs from industry experts and also keeping in mind the upcoming trends.   Weekly practical assignments are given to students. Through various active learning experiences in laboratories, students gain more insights into the field of study, develop ability to apply their knowledge to a greater extent, exhibit a greater level of understanding of course material and sharpen their problem solving skills. A lot of emphasis is given to the projects in the curriculum. Students work on various well diversified fields of computer science & engineering and information technology – image processing, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, information security, digital forensics, mobile computing, distributed system, computer network, software engineering, web applications, data mining, etc.  Many students also publish papers based on their projects in collaboration with the faculty. Senior students are encouraged to mentor their juniors in lab and project work. All graduates find excellent placements in industry. Many students choose to continue their higher studies at world’s top universities. Few students also take up the challenge to set up their own IT start-ups.   Many members of our alumni also provide their support by delivering guest lectures, feedback on curriculum, and also mentoring and personal guidance to students.
