The Department of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) was established in 1997, initially offering a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science & Engineering (B.Tech, CSE). The department focuses on mastering the fundamental concepts both theoretically and practically. The department is providing motivation for learning, intellectual efficacy and self-reliance, which provide the best foundation for continuing professional achievements. The B.Tech (CSE) programme offered by the Department had been accredited twice by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in 2003, 2007 and 2018.
Keeping in view the growth in industry and increasing demand for computer professionals, the Department has started a postgraduate programme to offer Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Computer Engineering and Networking. The programme provides intensive training to the students at an advanced level, enabling them to take up Research and Development (R&D) activities. The course curriculum has been specially tailored to fulfill the growing global outlook and focuses on upcoming technologies in the field of Computer Science and Engineering, to cater to the needs of the industry and R&D organizations. One should choose Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) as there are plenty of opportunities in this area, the platforms are incredibly diverse, and the jobs guarantee high remuneration with excellent job satisfaction. In addition, the skills learned with the logic and problem-solving abilities paves a sound trajectory for the rest of professional life.
The Faculty members of the Department are actively involved in research and development activities and are continuously participating and contributing in National and International Conferences and Seminars. The faculty members of the Department are well published, experienced, conferred with M.Tech/Ph.D. degree.
The Department has up to date laboratory facilities for both undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) programmes. The Department has specialized labs for IBM programmes. The laboratories are equipped with state of the art computing facilities.
The department is having several student chapters of professional bodies like IEEE, CSI, ACM& ISTE. Students are participating in various activities regularly to enhance their technical and interpersonal skills, under the banner of these professional societies. The department also interacts regularly with Information Technology organizations like TCS, IBM, Sun Microsystems, L&T, Infosys, HCL, Tech Mahindra, Dell-EMC, R Systems, etc. for providing the latest technology updates to the students.
Manav Rachna International Institute of Research and Studies (MRIIRS) has collaborated with IBM to jointly offer B.Tech Computer Engg. (Industry Integrated) in association with IBM in various specializations viz., Cloud Computing, Business Analytics & Optimization, Cyber Security & Forensics, and Graphics & Gaming Technology The subject matter experts from IBM teach the faculty members on cutting edge technologies through Train the Teacher Programme. IBM provides a Learning Management System, Industry Projects for students, Expert Lectures, Industry connectivity for students & teachers to enable them to experience the live IT environment.
This partnership helps students to acquire domain skills in the advanced areas of IT and preferential placements by IT companies. Students enrolled in these programmes have access to an online Eco-system Platform namely Innovation Center for Open Standards enabling them to access course material, discussion forums, student projects, industry mentors and news-clips.
Students enrolled in these programmes undertake live projects developed by IBM/ other IT majors under the mentorship of industry experts and go for industry visits in software development and testing centers. They also attend one-week Industry Interaction programme at Bangalore in IBM facilities at their own cost, where students are exposed to industry environment by senior industry experts. During this interaction, students participate in panel discussions, group activities and visit The Data center of different industries. IBM issues certificates for various modules after successful completion in addition to the MRIIRS B.Tech (CSE) Degree. The Programmes in association with IBM lead a big increase in job opportunities and industry readiness for the students.
Approximately 25% of the credits relate to the specific specialization in a particular programme and replace certain courses covered under normal B.Tech (CSE) Programme.
The Department has also collaborated with other leading industries such as Dell-EMC, Infosys, R Systems International, and TCG Digital Solutions, in order to give exposure to the students. These collaborations help the students to work on the technologies which are currently being used in the industry.

Excellent placements with over 90% of its eligible/ willing students placed in companies namely Microsoft, Infosys, TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, L&T Infotech, HCL, IBM, Hewitt, Tata Telecom, NIIT, Dell, Capital IQ, Vodafone, Airtel, Idea etc. With the introduction of specializations in B.Tech (CSE) Programme, placement opportunities for the students pass-out from the specialized programme will get further enhanced in a big way. In addition, placement opportunities are also available in the organizations such as DRDO, ISRO, ONGC, NIC, BSNL, Armed Forces, IES, Civil Services, Banking, Health Sector, etc.
The introduction of specializations in M.Tech (CE) Programmes such as Computer Networking (CN) aims at exposing students to the current edge of research.
Many students opt for higher studies/research in India/Abroad. The programmes running in the Department also prepare the students to choose a career in research and development, which provide an excellent foundation for Ph.D study.
