Established in the year 1990, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering was the first to offer courses leading to the award of the degree of Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Technology under the M.G. University. Since its inception the department has been producing computer engineers of high-calibre, who make the workforce in numerous blue chip companies like Google, Microsoft, Infosys, Wipro, Siemens, Oracle, TCS, CTS and others.
The curriculum is carefully designed to give the students a solid base by urging them to delve into core subjects like System Software, Database Systems, Compiler Design, Computer Organization, Networking and Security, High Performance Computing, Object Oriented Design and Modelling and Artificial Intelligence. The department maintains partnerships and collaborations with leading industries and educational institutions. The multimedia lab setup as a joint project of Super Computer Research Center, IISc, Bangalore and M.A College of Engineering has ushered in a new era of software development, research and consultancy. The department has received many appreciations from important national bodies in the field of engineering and technology.Indian Society of Technical education selected the department to conduct a national level training programme for engineering college teachers on the topic “Emerging trends in Networking and Mobile Communication”. The proposal submitted by the department to the All India Council for Technical Education was accepted and selected four times for awarding grants. The Network Systems Lab was setup under Thrust area project and Modernization of the Database and Multimedia Lab, the commissioning of the Software Engineering and Cyber security laboratories were done under the MODROBS initiative.To give the students a feel of the industry, they are directed to undertake live projects during their 6th semester and a research based main project in their final year. This exposes them to real life scenarios and nurtures in them the confidence, creativity and the ability to work as a team which are among the most highly desirable traits required to excel in both research and industrial environments.
