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.

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.

Dr. Athi Narayanan mentored students as part of NTRO project, "Automated System data feeding in Tiki using web-crawling for database updation."
The developed a tool which is capable of crawling through the website and collect the information regarding the key which is entered by the user. All analysis and visualization were presented through Web Application. Our project involves extracting of data from different sites using web crawlers and display on the page which contains the details regarding the searches the user made. The user needs to enter the key for which he wishes to search and specify the number of sites from which the user wanted to extract the data. The details include the sites URL which is mostly visited by the users using Google search, all the articles present in the site regarding the search which the user made and all the images present in the site regarding the search which the user made. The articles or some of the details regarding the search need not always be in English. The output is displayed in another page i.e. simply a collection of all the details at one place. User can also download the page which he searched for the details of.
Prof. Sandhya Harikumar mentored students as part of NTRO project.
The objective of the project is to develop a tool which is capable of crawling of news articles from various news sources and facilitate Text Analysis/ Mining of News articles. All analysis and visualization need to be presented through Web Application.
Project Description: Our main focus will be on open-source text data and its analysis.In our project, we shall extract data from RSS or using web crawlers we shall extract data from sites and ingest it into a database. The details included in the article must be recognized and stored (details like name, phone, email etc of the people mentioned in the article, article author, URL, date of the article etc) and the extras should be filtered out. The news-feed need not always be in English. If in any other language, the language is to be identified and using suitable NLP algorithms, the documents can be converted to English language and then stored in the database, along with the original language details. Also in case of redundant articles, the duplicate data is to be eliminated. The end user shall make use of a search engine (preferably Elastic search engine), to retrieve particular data or particular details from the database (for example- based on data collected, details of a person’s location or a person’s phone number). The output shall be displayed using a web interface. If possible, pictorial data can also be used (for example we can use graphs to identify a person’s location).
