The Department of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) was established in 1997, initially offering Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering (B.Tech, CSE). The department focuses on mastering the fundamental concepts both theoretically and practically. The department is motivating learning, intellectual efficacy, and self-reliance, which provide the best foundation for continuing professional achievement. The B. Tech (C SE) programme offered by the Department had been accredited Thrice by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in 2004, 2007, and 2018 under Tier I Category.
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 specifically 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. Also, 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 to National and International Conferences & 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 programmes offered by industry partners. The laboratories are equipped with state of the art computing facilities.
The department has several student chapters of the professional bodies like IEEE, CSI, ACM, and ISTE. Under the ambit of these bodies, students engage actively in various programmes to develop their technical and interpersonal skills. 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.
The subject matter experts(SME) from the industry teach the faculty members on cutting edge technologies through the Train the Teacher (T3) Programme. Industry partners provide Learning Management System(LMS), 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 Ecosystem 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 the Industry Interaction programme, where students are exposed to the industry environment by senior industry experts. During this interaction, students participate in panel discussions, group activities, and visit the Data center of different industries. Industry partners issue certificates for various modules after successful completion in addition to the MRIIRS B.Tech (CSE) Degree. The Programmes in association with industry enhances job opportunities and industry readiness for the students.
Approximately 25% of the credits relate to the specific specialization in a particular programme, which replaces certain courses covered under the normal B.Tech (CSE) Programme.
The Department has also collaborated with other leading industries such as Dell-EMC, Infosys, and R Systems International to give exposure to the students. These collaborations help the students to work on the technologies which are currently being used in the industry.
Experts from well-known multi-national conglomerates possessing a worldwide business in computer hardware/software, IT services, and consulting shall deliver specialized modules in the above mentioned and other domain areas to enhance the employable skills of Engineering/ Management Graduates. It consists of the Learning Management System(LMS), Student Project, Expert lectures from Corporates, visits to software development, and testing centers. FET students enrolled in these programmes shall be extensively exposed to a professional environment and industrial experience under the mentorship of academic and IT Industry experts. Those students who excel in the specified domain skills shall be preferred by the reputed IT employers through campus drive. Industry partners shall also issue certificates for various modules after their successful completion in addition to the MRIIRS degree.
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 the B.Tech (CSE) Programme, placement opportunities for the students pass- out from the specialized programme will get further enhanced in a big way. Besides, placement opportunities are also available in organizations such as DRDO, ISRO, ONGC, NIC, BSNL, Armed Forces, IES, Civil Services, Banking, Health Sector, etc.
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 provides an excellent foundation for Ph.D.study.
