Computer Science and Engineering
Businesses rely increasingly on Computer Science and Informatics, and the speed with which computing technology continues to transform our daily lives is truly astonishing. Specialists in this subject area are in demand all over the world because their applied skills can revolutionise businesses and organisations of all kinds.
The fast changing technological scenario poses to the Institute a challenge of continuously updating its curriculum and faculty to be able to provide state-of-the-art education to the students. Changes, both major and subtle, have been made by the department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), to be better prepared for tomorrow.
The B.Tech program in Computer Science and Engineering was started in the year 2005 with an intake of 60, increased to 120 in 2007 , 180 in 2012 and 240 in 2013. Besides, an additional 10% seats are under lateral entry scheme.
The department is also offering M.Tech program in Computer Science and Engineering from the year 2011, with an intake of 18.
The B.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering) program accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2008.
The department is headed by Dr.N Chandra Sekhar Reddy, with vast Industrial and Teaching experience of 15 years. The department currently has 56 faculty members, including 9 doctorates. Faculty research interest spans a wide range: from abstract theory to down-to-earth problems of immediate interest to industry. Current areas of research of the department has broadly classified into the following categories: Artificial Intelligence,Data Science, Cyber Security, Big Data,IOT, Internet of Things , Mobile Application Development ,Informatica and Languages.
The department is actively involved in R & D as well as consultancy projects and has collaborations with several industries, academic institutes and R & D organizations in the country.
The modern air conditioned laboratories of the department serve the teaching and research needs of the students and faculty. All systems are connected to the department LAN through fiber optic which is a part of the Institute LAN network. Internet connectivity is provided by a 300 Mbps link leased from Gateway and Vainavi. Additional facilities like Central Computing Facility, e-Class room with multimedia facilities, Internet, Centrally air-conditioned Seminar Hall/Auditorium are also available.
The department has been striving hard to inculcate conceptual and technical skills in students through a scientific teaching methodology based on lectures, case studies, seminars, group discussions, project works, assignments, quiz programs etc. The systematic and well planned approach to problem solving is emphasized in the classrooms, laboratories through the course projects and additional computer training beyond the scope of the syllabus. Teaching aids such as LCD Projector, OHP, CD demo, equipment demonstrations, Models, Charts etc are regularly used to enhance better understanding. Around 18-20 students of each class are allocated to a mentor who keeps a close rapport with each student with regard to academic and personal matters.
Student Chapters of IEEE, CSI and ISTE conduct events round the year, keeping students busy with beyond-the-classroom activities.
A good number of Students (more than 80%) find placements in the campus interviews by leading companies like Virtusa, Wiley MThree, EPAM Systems,Optum,L&T Infotech,,Qvantel, CTS,Incapsule India Pvt.Ltd., Jade Global, Hexaware, Global Edge, Innominds, Grey Campus, Upgrad, Infosys Technologies Limited, Tech Mahindra, NTT Data, Mphasis, Tata Consultancy Services, Cyient, CDK Global, NCR Corporation, Computer Sciences Corporation and Cyient etc. and lead a successful career. About 10% of the students get admissions in prestigious institutes in India and abroad for higher studies and are performing well there.
