Innovate. Achieve. Lead


For an institute like ours imparting cutting edge technology to our students, we understand that engaging in high quality research is vital to keep up in the forefront. We emphasis on research by offering dissertation option for both undergraduates and higher degree students in addition to practice school .Our dept has well equipped computer labs with all the software required to carry out advanced research. In fact we are in the process of getting latest Microsoft software tools including window 7.5 mobile programming tool Mango, windows Azure programming tool, Visual studio 2010, exchange servers, and other tools through an academic alliance with MSDN .In fact students from other depts. also can make use of the above MSDN academic alliance facilities. The above tools will facilitate students to undertake advanced research in emerging areas like cloud computing and mobile computing. Research in CS department is mainly focused on areas of Web Services and Security, cloud computing, Software Engineering and Component based modeling, Computer Networks protocol verification, Web Mining and Data Mining and mobile computing. Students pursuing their Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science can work on a Thesis for a period of six months in the final year of the program. Our students and faculties from the CS Department have contributed to high quality publications in reputed international/national conferences and journals.
