The department offers B.Tech., M.Tech. and Ph.D. programs in two disciplines, namely in the discipline of Computer Science and Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The objective of department is to equip students with techniques to become providers of innovative and indigenous solutions.Discipline of Computer Science and Engineering
The programs in the discipline of CSE are designed to start exposing students to the advanced areas of profession in the very first semester of their program. B.Tech. students get exposed to programming in the first semester. M.Tech. and Ph.D. students start exploring areas of their interest in the first semester to carry it forward for research.Discipline of Electrical Engineering
The discipline of EE has been striving towards providing a vibrant atmosphere for students in diverse areas of Electrical Engineering. Its programs are designed to prepare students for technical excellence.
