DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING

"Greetings from the department of Computer Science and Engineering (CS&E)."

It gives me pride and pleasure to introduce the department and its Web pages. I hope you will enjoy exploring our OBE driven teaching-learning process, achievements and activities. Our primary goal is to provide a quality technical education in computer science and engineering. The process of learning is extremely important in life and it plays a crucial role in developing ones intellectual capability, besides career. We follow outcome based teaching-learning process that bridges the theory - practice gap while remaining grounded in the core of computer science and engineering. Nowadays the technology is changing rapidly, especially in the field of computing. To face this challenge, we equip our students for problem-solving and expose them to the state of the art in computer science and information technology. We believe that, our students who are clear and thorough about the fundamentals coupled with practical experience can adapt to rapid changes in technology or software industry easily. Our department has produced hundreds of competent professionals and has established a name for itself in the country. Thanks to the efforts of our management, affiliating University (VTU), faculty, alumni and the students. .

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The primary objective of department is to provide the quality technical education by training the students to enhance technical skills in the area of computer science and information technology enriched with professional ethics and technical standards. The department was started in the year 2001 to offer under graduate degree programme i.e. Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Computer Science & Engineering (CS&E) with annual intake of 60. The department also offers post graduate programme in engineering i.e. MTech in Computer Science & Engineering (CS&E) since 2011.


The department has dedicated, qualified and experienced faculty members to guide the students in academics and research. The minimum qualification of each faculty is post graduate degree in engineering i.e. ME/MTech. The faculty members are actively involved in teaching and research. The faculty members have published number of research and review papers/articles in referred International journals and reputed International conferences which are archived at IEEE/ACM/Springer and other technical digital libraries. The active research areas of faculty include: SOA & Web Services, Cloud Computing, Data Mining, Information Security, Digital Image Processing, Pattern Recognition and Big Data Analytics.


The department frequently organizes training programmes for the faculty, technical staff and students. The faculty frequently attends staff development programmes (SDP/FDP/Seminar) to update themselves in technological advancements and conferences to present research finding. The department has received MODROBS grant of Rs. 5 Lakhs from AICTE in the year 2012-13 to carryout research in the area of Computer Networks and Information Security. The department also received financial grant from VTU & VGST (GoK) to conduct faculty Development Programme (FDP) on "Security Issues in Advanced Computing Systems".


The department aims at building the students’ career by placing special emphasis on all-round development of students through continuous interaction with Industry. Interactive sessions with experts from academia, research laboratories and industry are constantly held so as to enable students to gain knowledge on diverse and emerging fields. The department actively coordinates Campus Connect programme of Infosys Technologies Limited to mould the under graduate students of all branches in software technology and product development. The department frequently conducts training programs of EMC2 on Storage Area Networks (SAN) for under graduate students. The campus placement has been scaling higher and higher peaks right from its inception with multinational companies recruiting students in large numbers. To increase the opportunity of placements to students, the department conducts soft skills programme namely Internal Training (ITC) and Spoken Tutorial programmes by IIT Bombay.


The department promotes extracurricular activities under the umbrella of the students’ association "CIPIX". The association conducts annual national level intercollegiate technical fest "UTHKARSH" to promote technical and soft skills among students. The association also brings out biannual technical magazine which provides an opportunity for the students and staff to publish innovative ideas, programming tips and articles on current trends in computing and technology. The association frequently conducts various training programmes for the students on soft skills, facing job interviews, emerging computing paradigms and techniques by eminent resource persons from academia and industry.
