Greetings to All!

On behalf of my colleagues, I am delighted to welcome you to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. 

The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department has reached an important milestone – its 18th anniversary. From its modest beginnings as a graduate program in 1997, it has become one of the most strongest and dynamic departments in the college, and the computer science field.

The intake currently is 300 in each of the specialisations.There are four Computer Laboratories in the department. They have 40, 65, 65 & 70 systems respectively in them. The computer centers are well organised because of dedicated and competent teaching and non-teaching staff.

The single largest department in the entire Institute, Computer Science and Engineering is now home to several eminent and new faculty members, having rich experience in academics, industry and R&D. The department has grown to almost 48 faculty members who provide leadership and expertise in several areas of computer science and engineering.

One of the Professors, Dr. V.U.K.Sastry, formerly Professor from IIT, Kharagpur is having 48 years of experience in teaching and research. Dr. Kumar Eswaran, Professor, is having rich industry and teaching experience of 38 with Post Doctoral Fellowship, as well.  I am proud to express that both Professors have received Best Engineering Faculty awards from CTS in 2008 and 2014 respectively.

The department has conducted 30 Faculty Development Programmes (FDPs) in relevant and thrust areas of CSE, so far, for quality enhancement of the faculty of the institute and the other colleges. I am extremely pleased to tell you that the faculty and students of CSE department are involved in the research and publishing vast number of research papers in the International and National Journals and Conferences.

In order to bridge the gap between industry and institute, the department has taken a lead in organizing training programmes (two per semester) and guest lectures (two per semester) on latest emerging tools and technologies in collaboration with MNCs.

Some of our students have been selected for IAS, IPS and are conferred with other prestigious awards and gold medal in academics as well as co-curricular activities. Some of our students are selected as students ambassadors for Google, Mozilla and Facebook.  Many of our students have reached pinnacle in their career and higher studies by their sheer education and hard-work.

The department is very proud of the accomplishments of its faculty and students who played a part in this distinguished and still-growing legacy. This message has been prepared to commemorate this milestone and to highlight the major achievements and accomplishments of the department.
