Come and explore the world of Computer Science!

Computer Science is described as "the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems". The history of Computer Science predates the invention of the modern digital computer. Early computer scientists such as Church and Turing devoted their life to solving the problem of computability: what can be computed by simply following a list of instructions with paper and pencil? Their motivation is to construct a mechanical system capable of performing all possible tasks. The creation of such a concept of universal computer marked the birth of modern computer science.

So, what can you do by studying Computer Science?

1. Be able to design a computer language so powerful and elegant that the most difficult problems in the world can be solved?
2. To write a mathematical proof to testify that a program is correct or erroneous?
3. To develop an algorithm to beat the human mind in a chess game?
4. To write a search engine that is as influential as that of Google?
5. To write a program that can pick the best stocks?
6. To develop an early warning system for earthquake or tsunami?


You want to CHANGE the world?
If any of the above inspires you and matches your specific interest, Computer Science is the discipline for you. I would urge you to come and visit our Department and we will be more than happy to share with you our study and learning experience!

Strength of the Department

The department has 15 eminent faculty members(2 Professors & 13 Assistant Professors) with eight student computing laboratories for teaching, general computing and final year projects. These computing laboratories have more than 200 fast PCs, including Intel Core 2 Duo PCs and a IBM Server. These PCs are installed with Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7, and Linux operating systems. They run a versatile set of software, including Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft .NET Framework, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Adobe Acrobat, CSIM 19, MATLAB, Oxygen XML Editor, NetBeans IDE, NJStar Communicator Chinese System, IBM Rational Software Modeler, Sun JDK, Tomcat server and various language compilers. All of these student computing laboratories are open 7 x 24. All of the computers are connected to the departmental Gigabit Ethernet backbone, which is connected to the Internet.

Students can also use the computing facilities provided by Faculty of Engineering, Computer Centre and Main Library. Besides these the department also have a autunomous unit as "XYLOSOFT SOLUTIONS" through which we provides different capsule courses as

4. PRO-E
6. VLSI Systems
7. Embedded Systems
8. ROBOTICS Training
