The Department of Computer Science and Information Technology is committed to maintain programmes of excellence in teaching, research, and service. Students are given the opportunity to obtain a well-founded understanding of the principles and theories of the science of computing and information technology. Our graduates are well perceived and sought after by the industry where they have been successful in securing suitable positions. Our graduates are ready to enter the work force as productive computer scientists or to continue their education at the higher level. Their foundation is such that they can be life-long learners in their chosen field.
In addition to responsibilities for program excellence and professional development, faculty members are committed to service through continuing education programs and research that contributes to their field. At the department level, students, faculty, and the program itself are frequently assessed to assure that this mission is being fulfilled..
The rapid advancements in the field of computer science and information technology in late 90's necessitated a separate department for the study, research and development of various branches of the Computer Systems Engineering.
The demand for Computer Science graduates in the flourishing IT industry continues to multiply, providing excellent prospects for those with high quality skill sets. To augment this academic level the postgraduate programme with specialization in Computer Science & Information Technology (CSIT) and Information Security (IS) are being offered by the department. Currently, the Department is offering the following undergraduate and postgraduate programmes:
- BS (Computer Science & Information Technology)
- MS (Computer Science & Information Technology)
- MS (Information Security)
- MS (Data Science)
- PhD (Computer Science)
Center for Software Research & Development (CSRD) has also been established, whose aim is to expand the Research and Development Programs of the University, in the areas relating to I.T. & Telecommunication Sector, by conducting various workshops and training boot camps.
