Overview

This stream is aimed at providing training in Computer Engineering, software design and hardware-software integration instead of only Software Engineering or Electronic Engineering. Computer Engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers and supercomputers to circuit design. This field of Engineering will not only make the students aware of how the computer systems work, but also help them understand how to integrate each of them to make them work in the bigger picture.

Introduction to the course

One of the most sought after courses amongst engineering students, Computer Science Engineering (CSE) is an academic programme which integrates the field of computer Engineering and Computer Science. The programme, which lays emphasis on the basics of computer programming and networking, comprises a plethora of topics. The said topics are related to computation, algorithms, programming languages, program design, computer software, computer hardware etc.

Computer science engineers are involved in many aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers and supercomputers to circuit designing and writing software that powers them.

The program aims at designing, developing and troubleshooting computing devices (such as personal computers, supercomputers, robots, smart phones, networking devices, embedded devices), focusing the underlying fundamental issues (like processor architecture design, operating system design, memory management, digital system design, communication protocol design, software development and database management) in the most efficient and effective way.

Learning outcomes for Computer Science students:
  • Systems Thinking: Analyze, design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs.
  • Problem-Solving: Identify problems and formulate solutions for systems and organizations while reconciling conflicting objectives and finding compromises.
  • Communication: Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • Teamwork: Work effectively as part of a team to develop and deliver quality software artifacts.
  • Context Awareness: Design solutions using approaches that integrate ethical, social, legal, and economic responsibilities.
  • Cultural and Global Awareness: Recognize the applicability of computing and evaluate its impact on individuals, organizations, and global society.
  • Professional Practice: Evaluate and use appropriate methods and professional standards in computing practice.
  • Professional Development: Explore historical, current, and emerging techniques and technologies, founded on a commitment to lifelong learning and professional development.
  • Technical Expertise: Apply knowledge of computing and mathematics within technical domains.
  • Pragmatic Approach: Apply computing theory and programming principles to practical software design and development.
