From HOD’s Desk – Computer Science and Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was started in the year 2002 under Shridevi Institute of Engineering and Technology. After suffering a global economic downturn, the IT and software industry have shown positive signs of recovery, which has necessitated the future planning of Educators / trainers in computer education.
The department of Computer science and Engineering started with an intake of 60, the present being 120. In this department you will find teachers who are very young as well as teachers who are matured. There has been corresponding increase in the staff size over the last few years filling critical needs in the introductory Programme, communication, advancement, technical support for research. Through excellence in research, teaching and service our dedicated faculties have distinguished in the core areas of Computer Science and in multi- disciplinary areas.

The students get opportunities to excel in their academic achievements. The future holds many challenges. Apart from the regular VTU curriculum the department strives to develop the students into intellectual prodigy. The state of art laboratories facilitate the students to undergo CCP lab, Algorithm Lab, Graphics Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Networks Lab, Operating System Lab., etc with zeal and charm.

The architecture of the computers that we deal with everyday is changing- multi-core processor replacing the single CPU / single core desktop. The department arranges various value added Programmes like .NET, JAVA, DB2 etc., for the students so that they compete with the outside world. The department of Computer Science and engineering started an Association in “C PLANET” through which various technical and non technical events are conducted. Events such as Seminars, Paper presentation, Debate, Group Discussion nurture the technical thirst and inbuilt competitive spirit.

For the students to enhance their knowledge project is implemented in the curriculum. Projects of national and global importance in science and engineering seek computer science as an essential means of advancement and service. Our faculty and staff members work tirelessly to provide flexible, attractive and relevant education at the Undergraduate and post graduate levels to generate the workforce capable of meeting these varied challenges.

With these preface I am sure and confident that the students of the department will imbibe these and work hard to excel.

We welcome you to browse the department website, whether you are a student, parent, alum, a corporate partner, or a colleague, we want to hear from you. Your comments and suggestions will help us to move next level and provide us with encouragement and excellence.
