Department of Computer Science and Engineering
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established in the year 2002 with the mission to educate students from all over India, including those from rural areas, so that they become enlightened individuals, improving living standard for their family, industry and society. The Department emphasizes close interactions between the students and the faculty members who are dedicated to education and actively engaged in participation that enriches the educational programs. INFOSYS CAMPUS CONNECT PROGRAM is one among the prominent industrial relation program maintained since few years.
The Department offers B.Tech and M.Tech programs in Computer Science and Engineering stream which includes:
B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering
M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering
M.Tech in Cyber Security
Upon completion of the undergraduate studies, two options stay ahead of the students: find a job or pursue higher studies. They have lot of options to work in IT industry as Software Developers, Hardware Engineers, Software Testing, System Designer, System Analyst, Networking Engineers, Database Administrator, Security analyst, etc.
Work: Computer science placements are excellent because of the large service providers such as TCS, CTS, Wipro, Infosys, etc. They hire students in large numbers not just from computer science department but also from other departments such as chemical, civil, mechanical and electrical. Apart from software, internet and IT industry, there are other sectors such as data analytics, banking, oil and gas, manufacturing etc. that hires a lot of CS students for their IT needs. Also, Indian startup scene is growing rapidly and these companies are in need for smart and bright software fresher’s and professionals. Many computer science students who are interested in quantitative research, banking and finance join such firms.
Studies: Since computer science is based on the fundamentals of mathematics, computer science students have excellent critical reasoning and quantitative skills, which are of use not just in the software and IT sectors but also in other areas such as banking, management etc. For this reason, many students prefer to do their MS in computer science or an MBA from a reputed institution in India. For masters, specializations in computer science are as follows: artificial intelligence, real world computing, human computer interaction, mobile and internet computing, computer vision etc. Many students even do their higher studies in allied areas of computer science such as bioinformatics, applied mathematics, electronics and computer engineering etc. Some students even do their MS in information systems management or engineering management. Students who are interested in doing their M.Tech in India also have great opportunities as many institutions provide excellent post-graduate programs in computer science and enlighten their interest in teaching career and also in the research field.
