The Department of Computer Science is one of the largest and well established centres of learning computer science inSouth India offering B Tech,B.Tech Honours, M Tech, BCA, and MCA programmes.
Experienced and highly qualified faculties facilitate the students to achieve a high level knowledge and skills on recent trends in computing. The department has close association with reputed institutions in India and abroad (SUNY Buffalo,VU,UC Davis etc) to support students in their academics and final projects as internship.
Through this rapport, students also get opportunities to learn conventional as well as emerging areas in core computer science.
Campus has well established research centres carrying out real time projects in different areas in computer science, funded by the industry and the government. Research environment at campus is an added advantage for one who seeks career in teaching and research, after the post-graduation.
Department also hosts prestigious programming contest ACM-ICPCknown as the “Olympics of Programming Contest” every year.
To make an impact through Value Based Technical Education, Technology Innovation, Research and Service to Society.
We must lead the way, in partnership with others, in capitalizing on our many advantages, achieving a forefront position in areas of high impact in information technology that will benefit the institution, the region, and the nation.
The courses has been designed with the objective of imparting quality education in the field of Computer Science and to carry out leading-edge research in the discipline of Computer Science. With rapidly evolving technology and the continuous need for innovation the department has always produced quality professionals, holding various positions in Information Technology and other industry in India and abroad.
In keeping with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham recommendations, all programs offered by the Department follow a credit-based, continuous evaluation system. The credit system allows flexibility for course selection and time frame for completion of the program, and it also provides a good blend of teaching and learning, ensuring credible evaluation procedures and student mobility. The prominent features of the credit system cover continuous evaluation of student performance through well-planned assessment procedures and flexibility to allow a student to progress at a pace suited to his/her individual ability and convenience, subject to certain conditions.
To earn a degree, students must earn a minimum number of credits as laid down in the curriculum. A minimum standard of performance is required concerning study progress.
Department of Computer Science at Amritapuri campus has achieved 100% placements for B. Tech in last five years.

Invited Talks and scholarships/Internships
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:
Number of participants attending each workshop :
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.
