Today we find that information technology has become overwhelmingly
pervasive, while its parent, computing science, has become correspondingly
hard to find. While many CS educational institutions have shifted focus from
core CS and become specialty providers for the IT industry, or else please
permit me to say these mass producers of vocationally trained personnel, a
few institutions continue to emphasis the pristine science underlying the
diverse aspects of computing. This is the single most important attribute of
the education offered here. Our department has remained true to the vision
on which it was founded.
There are several ways to present the canonical core of computer science.
Over the years we have developed a distinct style and method that bridges
the theory - practice divide while remaining grounded in the core.
Technology changes rapidly, especially in the field of computing, whereas
the science, if it changes at all, does so much more gradually. Our
understanding is that persons who are clear and thorough about the
fundamentals can adapt to rapid changes in technology relatively easily. We
want the education imparted to our students to be the basis of a life time
Our Department has produced hundreds of professionals and has established a
name for itself in the country and abroad. They have consistently excelled
in the highly competitive industrial environment, Best Employer/ awards in
top-ranking companies. I attribute this success to the winning combination
of a dedicated faculty that works hard at imparting quality education, a
well-planned syllabus and last but not least, our students.
Learning is a continuous process and does not end with the acquisition of a
degree, especially because steady and rapid advances in computing
technologies shorten the life of tools and techniques prevalent today.
Therefore we do not aim to make our students walking manuals of any language
or package. Instead, they are given a strong foundation in computer science
and problem-solving techniques, and are made adaptable to changes.
We believe that this approach to teaching-learning, coupled with practical
experience gained during Industrial Training in reputed organizations,
equips our students to handle the challenges posed by the software industry.
I am confident that you will find our students worthy of your organization.
