The Department was founded in the year 1986, offering B.Sc. in Computer Science along with
Physics and Mathematics. Continuous programs were developed and administered, serving the
needs of industrial computer scientists, researchers, and computer application specialists for
whom the discipline of computing sciences provides indispensable tools with newer courses
Today, the dept offers various combinations such as
i) Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA)
ii) Mathematics, Electronics and Computer science (MEC)
iii) Mathematics, Physics, Computer science(PMC) &
iv) Computer science, Mathematics, Statistics (CMS).
The Department has also instituted a Masters in Computer Science (MSc).
The Vision of the Department is to ensure that our students have a deep and analytical
understanding of the field and to enable them to use their immense potential to enhance the
quality of human life by contributing to the field of Technology , preparing them for their Career
in the Industry , and to the needs of the Society with Ethical responsibilities.
The Department offers quality education in the Science of Computing by
providing courses with Computer Applications, Courses in combination with Physical Science
and Courses with Specialization and by focusing on the Personal, Emotional and Character
The Department conducts a Board of Studies every year and offers the syllabus according to the
Industry requirements and demands.
BCA is a three-year undergraduate degree program for candidates wishing to delve into the
world of Computer languages. Being one of the most popular options to get started with a career
in Information Technology, this course gives you an insight into the world of computers and its
M.Sc. Computer Science is a two-year postgraduate program provisioning to the group of
candidates drawn to probe deeper into the realm of computer science. It aims to prepare young
professionals for challenging business opportunities in the IT sector.
The Department also assists research scholars of various universities such as Bharathiar
University, Sri KrishnaDevaraya University, and Mother Teresa University.
The Department has 14 staff members. All faculty members have completed their MPhil and are
on the verge of completing their P.hD. Both members of the staff and students are actively
involved in the research. The students ought to prepare a term paper that is a culmination of a
