Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science offers programs of study related to computing, information technology and software design and application. Our programs involve interdepartmental, multi-institutional and inter-institutional collaboration and have attracted faculty members, undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. Students may pursue full-time or part-time study leading to a Certificate in Computer Science or to B.Sc, B Com degrees.
One of the strengths of the department is its strong entrepreneurial culture and many students have successfully involved themselves in creating entrepreneurial ventures some of which have gone fully commercial within a short span of time. While some such students benefit from the on-campus Technology Business Incubator provided by the Institute, some others choose to create virtual organizations to keep the costs low and later move onto the regular business models.
In the recent past, we had bench marked our curriculum with select institutions of higher learning around the world and currently we are carefully reviewing the impact of these consequent changes with a view to make our programes even more strong and competitive.
Objectives of the Department :
Students will demonstrate the ability to solve problems in the discipline.
Students will demonstrate interpretive skills, including the ability to: a) analyze data statistically, b) interpret results of experiments, c) draw reasonable conclusions based on experimental results.
Students will learn and demonstrate standards of professional behavior, including rules of ethics and etiquette.
Students will develop and demonstrate the ability to work effectively in a group on a common problem.
Students will demonstrate the ability to search the relevant literature of the discipline to find information that addresses a specific problem.
Students will demonstrate the ability to produce a technical document.
Students will demonstrate the ability to give an effective presentation using visual aids and/or software demonstrations.
The goals of the computer and information sciences department are to prepare students for graduate training in some specialized area of computer science, to prepare students for jobs in industry, business or government, and to provide support courses for students in engineering, mathematics and other fields requiring computing skills.
