The syllabus of the first two semesters firmly implants the fundamentals of computer science and applications. It helps the students in understanding how computers work and how different types of problems can be solved using computers. It gives the students a kaleidoscopic view of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). It lays a solid foundation on which the students can build their further studies. It teaches the students the problem solving approach and the systems approach that are fundamental to information technology.
In the third semester the students delve deeper into computer science and also start learning the tools of the trade. They learn operating systems, object technology, visual technology, analysis and design of algorithms and system software. In the fourth semester the same theme is continued. They learn operating system programming and computer networks in detail. They learn compiler design and software engineering as well. The students also get to learn the best practices in the field and acquire some essential domain knowledge about the functioning of businesses. During the fourth semester they also begin to apply their knowledge with the start of the inhouse project. The project, which is continued and completed in the fifth semester, serves as a test bed to test their skills and as a platform to consolidate their knowledge and develop a skill set essential to any computer professional. It enables the students to develop, assess and improve their analysis and design skills, programming skills as well as their documentation and presentation skills.
The fifth semester is the culmination of the students' march towards becoming a complete computer professional. By this time the students have already acquired fundamental skills. The fifth semester takes them deeper into computer science with advanced topics and provides them a diverse field to explore. Students also get a chance to study what they want according to their personal abilities and inclination through three electives. Latest trends in the field of information technology, the emerging field of bioinformatics, the highly promising field of wireless technology and the enterprise world of distributed and parallel computing are included in the syllabus apart from classic subjects like artificial intelligence and computer graphics and multimedia. The students also explore the world of business information systems in which most of them are about to jump. The course ends with the sixth semester industrial project that initiates the student into professional practice under the guidance of a seasoned industry expert.
