The Department of Computer Science Engineering (CSE) was established in 1986 and has grown exponentially over the last few years, evolving to meet demands of the 21st century.
Why is Computer Science Engineering so popular?
This is an emerging and powerful branch of Engineering, which has the tremendous advantage of abstraction and flexibility. These two combined with the power of processors has made this discipline an indispensable ingredient, in state of the art equipment across all fields.
Professionals from other engineering and technology domains harness the power and flexibility provided by computers. As a result this branch encompasses all the domains and is much sought after.
The department offers BE in CSE as an undergraduate program, which is an eight-semester course. M.Tech: Net Working can be taken as a specialisation in the postgraduate course. The PG course is spread over four semesters, as per the Visvesvaraya Technology University (VTU) syllabus, which is revised from time to time to align itself to the changing needs of the industry.
In keeping with the current trends
Some of the additions made in the courses by VTU include subjects like Engineering Management, Software Practices and Testing, C# and .Net, Web commerce, Internet Programming to name a few are offered to the Computer Science students. Augmentation courses are designed and delivered to students, which enable them to be in tune with new trends. in the department. A common practice adopted across all streams of Engineering.
The department has academic alliances with NIIT and IBM that enable courses like C, C++ and J2EE to be offered to students.
Industry experts from software companies are invited for seminars/interactive sessions with students. These sessions provide much needed exposure to new developments in industry. Seminars on "Firewalls" by Ms Bhavani and Ms Anjana from Novell Software, Principles of Software Testing by Mr Srinivas Desikan from Siebel on Career Courses by IBM representatives were well received by the students.
A beautiful undulating landscape is put to optimum use. A well-stocked library, state of the art infrastructure and committed faculty guide the students to achieve overall excellence.
An excellent record of academic results ensure that reputed companies like Wipro, Infosys, HP and other bigger companies visit the camps on a regular basis year after year with full placements happening during pre final stages. Students get plenty of opportunities to participate in Quiz and essay competitions, held by the college as well as to represent the college, in other prestigious institutes. Students are sent to visit IT exhibitions/ expos. Later they write reports about these visits which are published in the department newsletter.
Students have developed their own web-site to consolidate all the important events and data like results and attendance in one place. Students contribute articles to the dept newsletter and post them later on the web site, which is also a good platform for interaction. The Department also has a site which gives information about the various aspects like syllabus, projects and seminars conducted.
Network Lab Workshop:
Curricular activities include workshops conducted from time to time like Entrepreneur Development and Network Lab Workshop was organised for the benefit of Computer Engineering faculty of VTU. The department faculty played a major role in designing and implementation of the lab syllabus. The response was overwhelming. Over 200 faculty members from all over Karnataka State attended and took active part in the workshop.
The department has a large number of dedicated and versatile faculty. The details about the faculty are available in the individual profiles presented separately. Faculty is a good mix of researchers, academicians and individual expertise. A proctor system is in place with each faculty member, who acts as mentor/ guide for that group.
Every effort is made to deliver the best education to students so as to meet the needs of the software industry. All the faculty members share any new findings or information and discuss on various points amongst themselves, to improve the quality of teaching learning process. Students' feedback is also taken at regular intervals and incorporated appropriately.
Imparting good social values along with academic excellence; through counselling and close interaction with students from the faculty ensure the right grooming of a student. Senior students act as a guide and offer good leadership to fresher.
Interaction with Parents and Alumni
On a regular basis meetings are held with the parents, to discuss their ward's progress and any other issues they might have. Responses from parents at these meetings is overwhelming; many offering their expertise, some contributing books to the department library, others willing to give time and a few raising resources to provide for the needs of the department. Regular meets with the alumni supplement these efforts. The college, as a matter of practice, encourages employing its alumni as faculty and; the department has currently two alumni as its faculty on its rolls.
Being a multidisciplinary higher education centre, specialities like Dentistry, Pharmacy, Polytechnic, Nursing and Engineering along with other specialities functioning alongside, interdisciplinary research becomes that much easy. Sophisticated facilities are nearing completion and there is going to be a very powerful initiative towards research in the campus. Needless to say software will always have a major role to play.
Several of the faculty members have registered for Ph D and they will be contributing actively to the frontiers of Software Technology. Faculty members have presented Papers in both National and International events/conferences, more details of which can be seen in their respective profiles.
Alliances with industry
Seminars organised by Sun, Intel, Microsoft, Linux, QSIT were attended by students and staff of the department.
NIIT and IBM working with the college make it possible to offer augmentation courses to our students. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Linux Learning Centre and QSIT - quality consulting enables Software Development and Testing Training.
These efforts will lead DSCE to significantly contribute to the emerging technology of the future.
