Department of Computer & Information Sciences became School of Computer and Information Sciences on 22-01-2013
The School of Computer and Information Sciences offers high quality post-graduate teaching and research programmes in all major areas of Computing, Information Science and Artificial Intelligence. The school has the unique distinction of offering M.Tech. programmes in Artificial Intelligence, and in Information Technology with specialisation in Banking Technology and Information Security. The current research areas include Computer Networks and Distributed Processing, Data Base Management Systems, Software Engineering, Computer and Network Security, Mobile Computing, Logic, Decision Support Systems, Enterprise Resource Planning, E-Commerce, Geographical Information Systems, Data Warehousing and Data Mining, Bioinformatics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cognition, Natural Language Engineering, Speech Processing, Image Processing, Pattern Recognition, Vision, Parallel & Grid Computing. The department has a verfy vibrant Ph.D programme with more than 50 registered students as on date and 40 scholars have completed their research till now.
The School maintains active contacts with both industry and research labs and participates in developing state-of-art computing systems. Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India has recognized the School’s research contribution by funding it under FIST programme. Research labs in the school are supported by various national and international funding agencies like DST, AICTE, MIT, Govt. of India, Verizon Inc. USA.
For strengthening research in Software Engineering and Business Process Re-engineering, it has initiated academic collaboration with United Nations University/International Institute of Software Technology, Macau and University of Trento, Italy. Recently, the School has signed MoUs with IBM, ISTL, Sierra Atlantic and Pramati to promote research and teaching programme in Business Processes Re-engineering and Middleware Technology.
The School currently executes several research projects (funded by MIT, UGC, ISRO, DRDO, MHA, DST etc.) on Content-Based Image Retrieval, Natural Language and Speech Processing, Grid Computing, Neural Networks, Formal Methods in Software Engineering, Business Process Re-engineering, Forensic Document Analysis and System Security. Ph.D. students may have opportunity to work at University of Trento, Italy, to carry out research in Formal Methods for Business Process Re-engineering. As the school always has a high priority for research, it strongly encourages fresh and brilliant students to participate in the above exciting research programmes as full-time Ph.D. students. Under these projects some fellowships may be available for supporting brilliant and needy Ph.D. students.
Post-Doctoral Fellowships are available for research in specific areas in collaboration with IDRBT and GATE fellowships are available for M.Tech. students. For M.Tech. (IT) students IDRBT provides scholarships for meritorious students as per the institute’s terms and conditions. In addition, a limited financial assistance is available to meritorious students with financially / socially weak backgrounds.
The quality of education in the school not only attracts high caliber students from different parts of our country but also a good number of international students.
