The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established on 7th October 1996 with seven faculty members . In nearly two decades, it has grown into one of the major departments in the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, with a dedicated team of 70+ experienced and qualified faculty members demonstrating excellence in teaching and research. Currently the department offers Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in Computer Science and Engineering, B. Tech. Honors in Computer Science and Engineering, Master of Technology (M. Tech.) in Computer Science and Engineering. The department offers Ph.D. programmes in Thrust areas. The department has attracted the best engineering aspirants across the country.
As the nature of Computer Science and Engineering has a never-ending cycle of innovation rooted in it, our focus is on increasing the standard of the teaching and learning to gain international importance in research and academics. Looking at the global perspective the department has identified a few thrust areas for research and development: Computer Vision and Image Processing, Computational Intelligence and Information Systems, Networks and Internet of Things (IoT). The department has set up a research hub with state-of-the-art facilities at Amrita Multi Dimensional Data Analytics Lab, Amrita Cognizant Innovation Lab, Signal Processing and Mobile Applications Lab, Networks and Internet of Things (IoT) Lab. This has enabled a large number of faculty getting involved in research and producing high quality solutions.
To set high standards in teaching and learning, to enable a bright career path for the students, create a culture that fosters excellence and creativity, and inspire the next generation of computer scientists to be visible to computing communities and unleash their human potential in service to science and society; and to establish internationally recognized state-of-the-art centers of excellence in thrust areas of research in Computer Science and Engineering and inter disciplinary fields through innovation and collaboration.
