Today, all the world class universities offer post graduate progrmames in computational sciences and engineering in all branches. The Centre for Computational Engineering and Networking (CEN) foresaw the importance of computational science and started the journey with the main focus on Data Mining and Machine learning in 2003. The centre not only implies the conventional computer networking, but also integrates all aspects of IoT’s and social networking. The strong motivation for the inception of CEN in 2003 is the fall in price of computing over years and the data abundance due to sensor networks. This had led to the introduction of two M.Tech programmes namely, Computational Engineering and Networking and Remote Sensing and Wireless Sensor Networks.
The research focus of CEN is Artificial Intelligence and Data Science applied in various domains such as Natural Language Processing, bio-signal and image processing, smart grid, driverless vehicle, robotics, wireless communication & sensor networks and complex cyber-physical systems.
The center has faculty members who obtained their PhD’s from premier institutes in India such as IISc and IIT’s with international exposure from various universities in US and Europe. The centre enjoys vibrant collaboration with IIT Madras, IIT Guwahati, IIT Hyderabad, IISER Pune, IIT Bhubaneswar, Centre for advanced computing (CDAC, Pune, Bombay & Trivandrum), KTH Sweden, Potsdam Institute Germany, University of Trento Italy, Space Research Institute Moscow, University of Zurich Sweden.
The Center plays an important role in the process of scientific discovery and the field of engineering design.
