About the Department
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering, since its inception in 2002, imparts quality education in the field of B.Tech. Computer Science and Engineering, keeping in mind, the requirements of the dynamic, innovative and highly global environment of the present era. The Dept. offers M.Tech. Computer Science with Specialization in Data Security since 2009, an in depth course on the methods, algorithms, techniques and tools of data security and cryptography. The annual intake for the B.Tech program is 90 (60+30*) and that of M.Tech is 24.
The Department has excellent infrastructure facilities with well-equipped computer labs, classrooms and library. We offer progressive teaching-learning environment through a team of competent and committed faculty members, experienced in both teaching and industry. Many of them are pursuing doctoral programs with their specializations in the areas of data and computer security, computer networks, image processing, data mining, etc. The Department is NBA Accredited for three years from 2017-18 to 2019-20.
Our Department maintains MoUs with various organizations like Technolodge, (Kerala’s first rural IT park), CDAC, ICTAK, Oracle Academy, VSB Technical University, Ostrava, Czech Republic etc., which help to impart industry standard trainings for our students. We effectively share the facilities and expertise to improve the capabilities for advanced education, skill development and research work. Bridge courses are conducted for necessary courses to strengthen the prerequisites for learning. Conferences, technical sessions and seminars are conducted on a regular basis to provide an insight into current technological developments. Short term trainings, workshops and hands on courses are offered, to make the students competent enough to equip themselves with the highly dynamic needs of the Computer and IT industry. We also strive to instill innovative thinking practices and empathy in the students to create best-in-class computer professionals, providing solutions to the current societal needs. Our students have repeatedly proven their potential by excelling in various national and international level competitions organized by premier organizations like NASA, Blackberry etc. and have secured certifications from foreign universities. Our Department is proud to be the nurturing ground for many young entrepreneurs who have achieved unthinkable positions of success and have inspired our new generations of students. Moreover, our alumni form, the workforce of major IT giants like HP, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, CTS, HCL, Accenture, etc.
The Department also takes initiatives to promote Research and Development in the field of Computer Science. Many of our faculty members are pursuing research in advanced areas of computing. The students are encouraged to take part in research activities, participate in project competitions and to publish their work in the national and international conferences, journals etc. Around 20 research papers are published every year by our PG students and faculty. UG, as well as PG projects aim to address social causes.

B.Tech. Computer Science and Engineering
The curriculum is carefully designed by APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University to inculcate in students a solid base in basic engineering subjects & mathematics and advanced practical knowledge in the core areas of Computer Science. Core subjects like Data Structures and Algorithms, Computer Architecture and Organization, Operating Systems, Database Management Systems, Microprocessors, Networking, Compiler Design, System Software, Object Oriented Design and Programming, Artificial Intelligence, Web Technologies, High Performance and Mobile Computing are taught. The syllabus incorporates advanced programming labs like Python, Java, FOSS, design project etc. It also covers add-on courses like Life skills, Design engineering, Business economics and Principles of Management.
M.Tech. Computer Science: Specialization in Data Security
The course has an integrated curriculum imparting in-depth knowledge in the methods, algorithms and tools of data and network security. It is efficacious to computer and communication Engineers who are interested in embedding security to foray further into information system or network wherein integrity, confidentiality and authentication to confidentiality, documents and communication parties will be ensured. In today’s high profile technology environment, where organizations depend more on information systems, it is very critical to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access and to prevent data loss or misuse. With the advent of cloud computing and mobile computing, data is distributed in the network and the importance of data security is gaining great importance.
The course offers you an opportunity to attend network/data security workshops so that you can gain hands on experience in security implementations. This course also offers extensive open academic research into cryptography – key management protocols, secret-key cryptosystems, public-key cryptosystems, digital signatures, firewalls and network security systems. Research interests include the design and analysis of cryptographic algorithms, cyber forensics, design of cryptographic protocols and hardware/software implementations.
