COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING (APPLIED FOR NBA ACCREDITATION)
Computing and computer technology are part of just about everything that touches our lives from the cars we drive, to the movies we watch, to the ways businesses and governments deal with us. Understanding different dimensions of computing is part of the necessary skill set for an educated person in the 21st century. Whether you want to be a scientist, develop the latest killer application, or just know what it really means when someone says “the computer made a mistake”, studying computing will provide you with valuable knowledge.
Build a strong Computer research and teaching environment that responds swiftly to the challenges of the 21st century.
- Provide quality undergraduate and graduate education in both the theoretical and applied foundations of computer science and train students to effectively apply this education to solve real-world problems thus amplifying their potential for lifelong high-quality careers and give them a competitive advantage in the ever-changing and challenging global work environment of the 21st century
- Provide computer science education and training to students in other departments at VVIT.
- To continuously evolve methods to maintain new computer advancements as well as acquire software knowledge to face new challenges.
- To build global leader courage conviction and inculcation of good character with high Ethical values.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The Programme Educational Objectives of the B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering programme are given below and are numbered from PEO1 to PEO5.
PEO-1: To provide the graduates with solid foundation in Computer Science and Engineering along with the fundamentals of Mathematics and Sciences with a view to impart in them high quality technical skills like modeling, analyzing, designing, programming and implementation with global competence.
PEO-2: To prepare and motivate graduates with recent technological developments related to core subjects like programming, databases, design of compilers and Network Security aspects and future technologies so as to contribute effectively for Research & Development by participating in professional activities like publishing and seeking copy rights.
PEO-3: To train graduates for a high degree of employability in both public and private sector industries at National and International level by initiating in them professional competence, ethical administrative acumen and ability to handle critical situations.
PEO-4: To prepare graduates for higher education by providing training to excel in competitive examinations and to improve their technical and intellectual capabilities for lifelong learning process.
PEO-5: To train the graduates to have basic interpersonal skills and sense of social responsibility that paves them a way to become good team members and leaders.
Program Outcomes (POs)
The B.Tech CSE programme has documented measurable outcomes that are based on the needs of the programme’s stakeholders. The programme outcomes which are derived from ABET criteria are first drafted in the academic year 2009-10 and later revised in 2010-11. The programme outcomes that the department presently adapts to are as follows:
- Engineering knowledge: apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem analysis: identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural science and engineering sciences.
- Design/development of solutions: design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal and environmental considerations.
- Conduct investigations of complex problems: use research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
- Modern tool usage: create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
- The engineer and society: apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
- Environment sustainability: understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in the societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
- Ethics: apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
- Individual and team work: function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
- Communication: communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Project management and finance: demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
- Lifelong learning: recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broader context of technological change.
