The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established in 2017. It has become the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCOPE) in January 2019. At present, the School is headed by Dr. Hari Seetha with 3565 students, 79 faculty and 94 research scholars. The School has qualified and committed faculty members who offer impressive instruction in a variety of modes, exploring experiential learning approaches and new pedagogical methods in order to provide proper learning to students. The school provides the necessary infrastructure, hardware, and software to support the faculty for their continuous learning and research.
The faculty members have published 20 national/international patents among which 10 are granted with 105 research publications in renowned Scopus/SCI journals and conferences. The school has awarded doctoral degrees to two of its research scholars in 2021.
The faculty members have participated and published their research work in national and international conferences. In addition, Dr. Anupama Namburi and Dr. Vijaya J. have travelled abroad for attending an international conference in Turkey and Dr. Sibi Chakravarthy went to USA for providing training to professors and officials of AI and Network Security. Five faculty members are NASSCOM certified Associative Analytics Trainers. The School always make sure that its future holds success and encourage faculty members to attend and organize seminars, workshops, Faculty Development Programme and technical events to upgrade with latest technology and industrial needs like Machine Learning, AI, Big data Analytics, Network Security, Agile, and Software architecture, etc. The school has conducted 1 national conference, 13 Faculty Development Programmes, 9 workshops, 25 seminars/Guest Lectures in various and 5 Technical events which includes Codeathon and hackathon.
The School offers 2 undergraduate programmes and 2 postgraduate programmes viz.,
- B.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering).
- B.Tech (CSE with specialization in Business Systems).
- Five year integrated programme- M.Tech (Software Engineering).
- Five year integrated programme- M.Tech CSE in Collaboration with Virtusa
The curriculum and syllabi of these programmes are designed to impart competencies and skills required for the respective programme based on the advice of experts from industry and academia. Guest lectures are organized for every course by the professionals from industry to enable the students to learn the best practices followed in industry as well as state-of–art technology. The students take an active role in inter disciplinary projects through a course called Engineering Clinics. They are encouraged to do industrial internships and pursue MOOC courses during their summers. Technical Events such as Hack-a-thon, Code-a-thon are conducted to hone the programming skills of the students and to build the spirit to work in teams.
The school has 15 computer labs and two specialization labs. These labs are equipped with the latest desktops, networking devices, and advanced computers for students to learn, experience, and create their codes and project works. Various softwares such as Dev C++, Python, Matlab, R, OpenGL, Processing, Blender, Eclipse, Ubuntu, Rational Rose, Oracle etc are made available to students.
Computer Science is an ever-evolving discipline that studies the theory, design and implementation of computer applications and systems. Computers and computer systems play a central role in business, communication, science, entertainment and medicine. As the range of computer applications continues to expand, so does the demand for computer scientists. With a focus on nurturing bright minds and developing real-world problem solving skills in them, the department of Computer Science and Engineering at VIT-AP offers the following programmes.
