About Us

In order to impart knowledge and training to students in the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice computer applications, the Department of Computer Science was established in the year 1987. The vision was to produce professional leaders, in the field of software development and research who shall enhance the technological strength of the region and the country. It is being achieved through the development of the technical as well as theoretical skills of the students through regular conventional and non-conventional teaching modes and through rigorous hands on practical training sessions. The Department provides the facilities suited for the development of skills and the team spirit among the students, inculcated in the given environment through seminars, group discussions, assignments, class tests, quizzes and design & development of dummy as well as real-time projects in the class rooms and laboratories. Keeping with the pace of the industry and R&D requirements so as to cater to the needs of the society, the department has been regularly updating its curricula from time to time. The latest thorough overhauling of all the curricula by the Department was affected as recently as in 2009 and 2010.

At its inception, the department started a Certificate Course in the Programming (CCP) along with Diploma in Computer Applications (DCA) in the year 1987. Later on, in the year 1992, the DCA was replaced by Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA). The year 1990 brought in a new era for computer professionals in the history of the state with the launch of Master of Computer Applications (MCA), a highly professional, Master’s Degree programme. This academic/ professional program aims at imparting theoretical and practical training in the area of Computer Science and its applications. MCA is a full time three-year professional course spread over six semesters and also includes a one full semester industrial training. The curricula of MCA program has been designed with the objective of identifying, developing and sharpening of analytical and computational skills of the students. Providing different working platforms as per the ever changing requirements of the industry further enriches the knowledge of the students.

Since 2006, the Department has also started running a full time 2 year Master of Technology (Computer Science) i.e. M. Tech. (CS) programme spread over 4 semesters. The course is aimed at, in addition to other objectives, bridging the gap between the academic and professional requirements of the society at large. The curricula for this programmes matches the best in the country and has also been thoroughly updated recently in 2010. The whole of the fourth semester of this programme is dedicated to a dissertation work where each student is required to work on some contemporary research problem related to different areas of computer science, technology or their applications. The emphasis is on surveying the related literature, envisioning the problem domains and suggestions on the solution domains for one more problem domains.

The latest and the ultimate feather added to the academic history of the Department was the starting of the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program in 2007. This programme lays specific emphasis on fulfilling the academic needs of researchers of the region in general and the teaching community in particular. In this programme, the students work on different problems related to the fields of computer science, technology or their applications under the able and expert guidance of the teachers of the Department.
Dress code for students of Computer Science Department is being followed.
