Discrete Mathematics Center
Discrete Mathematics Center focuses in research and training. The areas of interest include: Discrete Mathematics, Algorithmic Design and Analysis, Bio-informatics and Bio-computation.
Students of Discrete Mathematics Center participate in research and problem solving activities. Subsequent to graduation they pursue higher education and industrial careers as well. Some of them are either pursuing or obtained graduate degrees from reputed universities across Europe and America. Some of them are working for industries including Hackerrank, Amazon, DirectI, Cisco and Flipkart. The active areas of research include the following. Theoretical-computer-science (Bio-computation): Efficient algorithms to transform strings and permutations with various operations, this research has applications in genetic mutations and evolutionary biology. Bio-informatics: Computational enumeration of protein structures and the subsequent frequency distribution analysis. This research explores the protein structure space. Combinatorics: Computing cardinalities of subsets of Sn with k adjacencies and applications thereof. This research investigates alternative ways computing either distances or expected distances in the symmetric group Sn for a given set of operation.
A strong membership comprised of all Computer Science students and faculty members of the Computer Science Department provides a solid base for the student associations to move their strategies and plans forward. The associations contribute toward academic progress as they open up new outlooks for exploration through different activities. In addition, they lend a hand to all events headed by the institution.The Department of Computer Science has four student associations:
PACE – B.Tech. Computer Science Students’ Association
Faculty Coordinator – Anish Chandran
Students Coordinator – Sreedhu Krishnan
VAASTAV – B.Tech. Information Technology Students’ Association
Faculty Coordinator – Archana.K.Rajan
Students Coordinator – Abish.K
SATBHAV – BSc Computer Science Students’ Association
Staff Coordinator – P. Jayakumar
Students Coordinator – Vivek Bhaskaran
MITRA – Post Graduate Students’ Association
Faculty Coordinator – Binu P. K
Students Coordinator – Sanju N. P
MCA students conducted a workshop series, Sparz’09, at Amritapuri Campus on October 25-26, 2009.
- Adobe Flex workshop: Conducted by Mr Harish Sivakumar, computer scientist and technology evangelist from Adobe Systems. The CSA Department drew a record breaking 209 registrants to the bootcamp, including students and faculty members. By the end of the one and half day workshop, participants had gained a firm understanding of the popular Flex platform. The session included the creation of a login page, a media player with all the basic functions and some live demos of application created using flex. Mr Sivaram distributed goodies during the session to enthusiastic participants. The bootcamp was highly successful with members requesting more such sessions to be held in the future.
- Mash-Up: Conducted by Unnikrishnan R & Venugopal M of S5 & S3 MCA respectively, this three hour workshop introduced participants to the world of social networking applications using the Adobe Flex platform. Twitter and Facebook APIs for Flex was discussed and by the end of the session most participants could create a basic Twitter Flex application. This workshop included sessions on creating a sample Adobe AIR client application which updates Twitter status and Face-book status simultaneously .
- Compu-Blending: Compu-blending, conducted on October 25, 2009, included sessions on PC assembling and OS installation. A compensation class was conducted October 27, 2009 for those who could not attend the October 25th session.
Number of participants attending each workshop :
1. Adobe Flex–209
Dhruvam ’09 Tech Fest
PACE, Professional Association of Computer Engineers, the association of CSE students, conducted a campus level technical festival during October 19 – 21, 2009. Students from all branches participated, making it a huge success. The main aim of this festival was to expose students and staff of the college to the latest technologies and to gain valuable knowledge and expertise.
Primary coordinators were fifth semester students and all other junior and seniors extended their cooperation in coordinating the various events. Major events included Coding, Hacking, Quiz, Best Manager and Ultimate Engineer, as well as Network Gaming, Treasure Hunt, T shirt designing, movie making and a workshop on Hacking and Game design.
