The discipline of Computer Science involves understanding of computers and computational processes. It is concerned with the study of information storage, its transfer and transformation. Particular interest is placed on developing effective ways to solve computing problems. The discipline ranges from theoretical studies of algorithms to practical problems of implementation in terms of computational hardware and software.
The students will be trained to meet future challenges in computing and instil in them the ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings. To achieve this goal, the curriculum has been designed to provide a balanced mixture of theory and laboratory at foundation as well as advanced levels to make the graduate capable of sound professional decisions.

An ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
BS (Computer Science)
Field Visits and Practical Trainings
To give them exposure of the latest technology usage in the field, students’ tours to industry are regularly being arranged. Moreover, the department arranges internships for the students during vacations.
Currently, there are two state of the art laboratories in the Department. These labs are equipped with every instrument and software required in the computer science courses. In addition, department also shares an I/O interfacing lab to equip students with processors/embedded systems programming.
