About the Department
The Department of Computer Science was started in the year 1990. Initially the department had Bachelor's degree programme in Computer Science. Later, the department was upgraded with the addition of shift II in 2007 and Master's degree programme in Computer Science in the year 2012. Efforts are on to soon convert it into a research department. There are 8 well-experienced faculty members with NET/SET qualifications in the department out of whom four have their PhDs. The faculty members of the department are deeply engaged in research. They consistently publish scientific research articles in reputable journals and attend conferences.
The curriculum is regularly updated in order to adapt effectively to the changing needs and changing times. In order to bridge the gap between classroom teaching and the industry requirements, the department organizes expert talks and seminars on current topics through Forum for Information Technology. It is an excellent platform for students to develop new ideas along with innovative and out-of-the-box thinking. The students have brought laurels to the department by winning various competitions and events.
The M. Sc. degree programme is a two-year programme started in the year 2012. Guest lectures, case study presentations, business presentations and other related programs are organized to provide insights into the latest developments and trends in the industry. Students are offered a plethora of opportunities to acquire and improve key competencies in Computer Science, which further encourages them to pursue careers in the highly competitive IT sector along, with equal emphasis on human values and professional ethics. Every year campus interview is conducted through placement cell and students were placed in top ranking IT companies and BPOs.
Before the creation of the Computer Science Department, formal programming courses were taught through the Maths Department. As course offerings grew, computer science became an integral part of the education. When Computer Science was recast as a department in 1990, it started undergraduate course with a single staff member in the annex of Mathematics department. Later the number of staff members was increased to four. In 2007, the department started running in the new Computer Science block which had three classrooms, two labs (computer science lab and digital lab) and a staff room.
In 2007, shift II was introduced with a single GL. Later on, the no. of GLs were increased to five. In 2012, M.Sc. was started with a sanction of 4 permanent staff. So the department staff strength increased to 8. PG lab was established in 2018.
"To be a respected and sought - after educational institution engaged in equipping individuals capable of building, learning and organizing"
"To develop competencies of students with good value system to face challenges of the continuously changing world"
The outcome of the UG & PG programme in Computer Science would be to create an individual with very high knowledge in the subject concepts, develop good communication skills through frequent seminars and digitally conversant through presentations, get inclined to analyze and solve problems, have a quest for enquiry and learning.
- The program also gives abundant opportunity for students to pursue disciplinary cum systematic learning ,
- enhance and explore her communication skill set ,
- undergo thorough training in analyzing problems,
- motivated to learn through questions and updated topics ,
- work in teams
- to take initiatives ,
- become digitally efficient ,
- embrace moral values ,
- be aware of the resources available to equip knowledge ,
- earnest to be self-learner
- and project their findings globally.
However, it is up to the student to take her thought initiative forward to reach her goal. The skill levels are checked on a scale of 3 and correlated as low (1), moderate (2) and strong (3) for each unit of the course to arrive at the total correlation of skills for the programme. Any level of skill below 30 % is not correlated and left as blank.
