For the first time in India under graduate course in Computer Science and Engineering was offered in 1977 under Electrical Engineering Department with a modest strength of 10 students. Over the years it has established itself into a separate department. The department with the passage of its evolution and growth has succeeded in creating its place of excellence not only within the Institute but among its counterparts in the country and abroad. It has been attracting bright students from all parts of the country for quality education in computer science at under graduate, post graduate and doctoral levels. During the course of time it has offered opportunities to its inmates in the area of quality education, research in pursuance of a long cherished mission of the department.
The computer Science Engineering Department offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering, and Information Technology. It also offers a Master of Technology in Computer Science & Engineering, Master of of Technology in Software Engineering, Master of of Technology in Information Security, and Master of Computer Application (M.C.A.). Further, the department also enrolls candidates for Ph.D. .The department has qualified and experienced faculty in the areas of Computer Architecture, Database Systems, Image Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Wireless and Sensor Networks, Computer Networks, and Software Engineering. There is close interaction between the Computer Science & Engineering Department and various other departments like Electrical Engineering and Electronics & Communication Engineering in the field of teaching and research.
The Department Computer Science & Engineering has following missions
- To offer high quality undergraduate and graduate programs, to train the students in different aspects of computing discipline and to offer other training programs to enhance, augment, and/or update technical skills of stake holders.
- To provide a learning environment that helps students to be successful in their professional lives and to prepare students to be lifelong learners by offering a solid theoretical foundation in computing along with applied computing experiences and educating them about their professional, and ethical responsibilities.
- To have high quality faculty and staff with an appropriate know how and degrees with a commitment to remain professionally advanced through ongoing research and professional development programs.
- To attract and retain a diverse and multicultural population of student, faculty, and staff.
The Computer Science & Engineering Department of Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad would continue to provide leading programs in the field of computing. The graduates produced would be globally recognized as innovative and well-prepared computing professionals. These graduates would be leaders and innovators in the industry, education, and other walks of social life. The faculty working in the department would influence the national and international agenda through quality in teaching and research. Department would strive for inter-disciplinary pursuits that reinforces the impact of computation in other disciplines.
