Department of Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science offers three M Tech programmes and Ph.D programmes.

M.Tech Computer and Information Science

The M.Tech. in Computer & information Science is intended to develop Human Resources for System Integration, Data Base Design & Administration, Information Technology Enabled Services, etc. It is a cross migratory programme where any engineering graduate can enroll, with limited entry to post graduates in Science.

  • First class ( 60% marks ) or percentage equivalent of GPA in B.E / B.Tech in any discipline or AMIETE / AMIE or in M.Sc Physics with Electronics as special subject or in M.Sc Mathematics .
  • A valid GATE score.

M.Tech Software Engineering

The M.Tech in Software Engineering is intended to train Computer Engineers to become Software Engineers and professionals, expected to lead software design and development teams, with good proficiency in testing, verification and validation. Software functionality as well as methodology is given adequate importance in the course content.


  • First class B.Sc ( Engg ) or B.Tech degree ( 60% marks ) or percentage equivalent of GPA in Computer Science / Information Technology or AMIETE / AMIE ( CS ) or M.Sc in Computer Science / Computer Software / Operational Research and Computer applications or MCA.
  • A valid GATE score or a score in the DAT where GATE qualified candidate are not available

M.Tech Computer Science with Specialization with Embedded Systems(Part Time)


  • First Class B.Tech degree in Computer Science & Engineering / Electronics Engg. / Information Technology / Electrical Engg. or equivalent branches or M.C.A with 60% marks or equivalent CGPA

Famous quotes containing the words department of, science, department and/or computer:

    ... the Department of Justice is committed to asking one central question of everything we do: What is the right thing to do? Now that can produce debate, and I want it to be spirited debate. I want the lawyers of America to be able to call me and tell me: Janet, have you lost your mind?
    Janet Wood Reno (b. 1938)

    Human Nature is the only science of man; and yet has been hitherto the most neglected.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    The African race evidently are made to excel in that department which lies between the sensuousness and the intellectual—what we call the elegant arts. These require rich and abundant animal nature, such as they possess; and if ever they become highly civilised, they will excel in music, dancing and elocution.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    What, then, is the basic difference between today’s computer and an intelligent being? It is that the computer can be made to see but not to perceive. What matters here is not that the computer is without consciousness but that thus far it is incapable of the spontaneous grasp of pattern—a capacity essential to perception and intelligence.
    Rudolf Arnheim (b. 1904)
