History and Growth of the Department

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established in 1987. Initially, it was conducted  short term courses. The M.Tech programme was introduced in the year 2010. Currently, it has seven experienced faculty members.  The department offers M.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering for officers from DRDO, the services, and the general public, MS by Research and Ph.D. programme. The current plan is outlined to understand, assimilate & use the advanced technologies to design and develop software and hardware. Department started M.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering with a specialization in Cyber Security from July 2011.
The programme’s objective is to develop human resources in the field of Cyber Security with a thrust on defense-related problems. Advanced technologies from four different domains like wired and wireless networking, Cryptography, Digital Forensic techniques have been selected. The course also introduces the concepts of Network Centric Warfare and Information Security Management Systems. After the end of the course, the student can understand various advanced technologies related to Information Security, Incident Responses, Digital Evidence Analysis, Cyber Attacks, Design, and Development of secure systems.

 

 

Vision: To be a center of excellence of international repute to provide high quality education, research and training in the area of Cyber Security (CS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to promote innovation and entrepreneurship skills amongst the students with a view to strengthen national security and self-reliance.

Mission:

M1: To build strong education, teaching and research environment in the field of Cyber Security (CS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to meet requirements from defence, specially related to national security.

M2: To strive for continuous learning, innovation, entrepreneurship and quality research culture amongst the student community through effective government, industry & academia collaboration.

M3: To encourage ethics, team work and technological leadership skills amongst students to solve complex engineering problems collaboratively by imparting strong theoretical foundation complemented with extensive practical training.

M4: To develop high quality indigenous technological solutions catering defence and civil needs by carrying out multidisciplinary collaborative research.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO1:The MTech Computer Science and Engineering aims at developing skilled Human Resources in the field of Cyber Security and Artificial Intelligence by providing two different specializations, catering the emerging multidisciplinary problem solving needs of defense, civil and DRDO sectors.

PEO2:The MTech Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Cyber Security(CS) programme aims at developing skilled Human Resources in the field of Cyber Security with a thrust on solving defence and society related problems. The present programme is conceived to understand, assimilate & use the advanced technologies such as Network security, Cryptography, Ethical Hacking, Digital Forensic, Malware Analysis, Information Security Management and Trusted Computing techniques. After completing this course, students are expected to understand and practice the essential CS concepts along with developing secure systems.

PEO3:The MTech Computer Science and Engineering with specialization in Artificial Intelligence programme aims at developing skilled Human Resources in the field of AI with a thrust on solving defence and society related problems. The present programme is conceived to understand, assimilate & apply the advanced technologies such as deep learning, robotics, machine learning, computer vision, video surveillance, text analytics, speech analytics etc. After completing this course, students are expected to understand and practice the essential AI concepts along with developing AI based systems to solve society/defence related problems, carry out research and innovation.
