Computer Science is a science of abstraction - creating the right model for a problem and devising the appropriate mechanizable techniques to solve it.
- A. Aho and J. Ullman.
The department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) was established in the year 2001 with B.Tech program in CSE. In these two decades, the department is expanded to offer four B.Tech programs in Computer Science & Engineering and its emerging areas. The M.Tech program in Computer Science & Engineering was started in the year 2008. The department has a recognized Research Centre under Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad and conducts Ph.D programs in Computer Science since 2019.
In the year 2020 with the approval of AICTE, New Delhi the department started offering B.Tech programs in the following emerging areas of Computer Science and Engineering
- B.Tech: CSE (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning)
- B.Tech: CSE (Data Science)
- B.Tech: CSE (Cyber Security)
B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) successively five times i.e. in 2008, 2013, 2016, 2019 and 2022 and M.Tech program in Computer Science and Engineering in the year 2019. The period of validity for B.Tech program in CSE in Tier - I is till 30 June, 2025 and M.Tech programs in CSE was till 30 June, 2022 (Submitted SAR for further accreditation status).
The department of CSE aims to expertise in computation through strong knowledge of algorithms, data structures, and coding skills in programming languages like Python, C, Java and open source technologies, Data centric and secure application development, Artificial Intelligence, cloud and big data technologies.
The main objectives of department are to provide:
- Proficiency in problem-solving techniques through programming
- Design, implement, and evaluate computer-based systems and applications
- Experiential Education through problem and research based learning
The department has 11 academic laboratories like Python programming, programming for problem solving using C, data structures, programming with objects, Design and analysis of Algorithms, database management systems, Web Application Development, Linux Programming, Data Mining and Analytics, Software Design and testing, Cloud Application Development etc. the infrastructure and lab facilities are upgraded from time to time and provide good practical learning and innovative environment for the students and researchers. Has also the centers of excellence in the following niche areas in collaborations with leading industries like Wipro, Virtusa, EPAM, National Instruments, etc.
- Artificial Intelligence Experience Center (AIEC)
- Center of Excellence in Big Data & Data Science (B2DS)
- Virtusa Center of Excellence (PL/SQL)
- EPAM Center of Excellence (EngX Framework - Java, Fron-end, Automation Testing using Java/Selemnium, .Net and Cloud & DevOpps)
- Wipro Talent Next (JAVA Full Stack)
The students are nurtured with a variety of active learning activities including and not restricted to class room teaching, presentations, video lectures, MOOC courses, minor / honors courses, experiential learning (Exeed) and online courses by faculty in the institute and across the globe.
Computer Engineers Technical Association (CETA) is a students’ body for conducting activities on career development, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills of students. It organizes Seminars, Quizs, Industrial Visits, Paper / Poster Presentations, Group Discussions, Guest Lectures, Career Guidance, Coding Games etc. under its auspices. Student clubs
Student Chapters of various professional bodies like Computer Society of India (CSI), Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), and Institute of Engineers (IE) provide unique opportunities for networking, mentoring and bonding over common interests.
With an objective of help students to pursue their hobbies and interests and to bring people together the student clubs are created at the Institute. Students of CSE are initiated Engineering Clinics with an aim of nurturing coding challenges, open source contributions, hackathons, code-a-thons etc. Idea 2 Innovation (I2i club) focus on skillup activities on the steps in the process of idea to innovation. e-Designing and Marketing Club(e-DAM) focus on cutting edge technologies on UI/UX design, App development, Digital Marketing.
M.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering)
The department offers a two year full time M.Tech program in Computer Science and Engineering from the academic year: 2008 - 2009 with an intake of 12, selected through GATE / TS PGECET, common entrance test.
The course is designed for Computer Science and Engineering and allied graduates who are practicing engineers, R&D managers, IT Professionals who seek an in-depth understanding of Computer Science advances in core concepts, Algorithms and Technologies.
Students are encouraged to Open source contributions, participations in Coding Challenges, Hackathons, Code-a-thons etc., internships and the in-house project ideas are based on research and social problems.
