Center for Excellence in Computational Engineering and Networking of Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore came to life on May 17th 2003. What initially began as a small group of people focused on research gradually blossomed into a strong center that apart from offering postgraduate program, also began taking up challenging projects from various institutions like ISRO, BARC, DRDO and IT Ministry of India. CEN believes that solving state of the art problems require a highly multidisciplinary background. Hence CEN is promoting a system view of problems where compartmentalized study is meaningless. Thus the course syllabus is highly multidisciplinary... Read more»

The Center plays an important role in the process of scientific discovery and the field of engineering design. It offers multi-disciplinary M. Tech programs in Computational Engineering and Networking as well as in Remote Sensing and Wireless Sensor Networks.  Faculties responsible for taking classes are also engaged in research projects. Hence 10% of the course syllabus is always based on the current projects that each faculty is currently working on. This not only provides a real life scenario for the students interested in research, but it also keeps them up-to-date with the current research problems and methodologies..Read more»

At CEN, we have undertaken and succesfully completed several research projects and exciting, original research is taking place in the fields of information technology, engineering and medicine, among others. In keeping with the research thrust at Amrita, the Center is actively involved in the areas of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. A massive translation project is underway that aims to develop tools to translate web content from English to Indian languages. This initiative, when complete, will enable every child in India to access information in his or her own mother tongue. Research is also ongoing in the area of speech translation...Read more»
