School of Engineering under Dayananda Sagar University provides Science & Technology based Education required to develop high calibre Engineers suitable for Industry and Scientific Organization. The curriculum focuses on knowledge based course work integrated with skill development as a part of training. It equally helps in inculcating the scientific temper necessary for the Lifelong learning process.

At the Under Graduate level, a student goes through the foundation courses in Science, Humanities and Engineering. Each department ensures that the courses cover both Core & Electives as required. Provision for open elective help the students to acquire inter-disciplinary knowledge or specialize significantly in an area outside the parent discipline. At the Post Graduate level, students are exposed to knowledge beyond their specialization and help in broadening their horizons of thought process.

The School of Engineering follows two compulsory Semesters in a year with an option of a supplementary III Semester as a makeup semester. The I Semester begins from 1st August, II Semester from 1st December, and Supplementary Semester from 1st of April.

About Program:

Computer science and Engineering program's motive is to endow the arduous world with engineers who are proficient to be competent IT professionals, researchers and entrepreneurs. Programs helters all disciplines and intellectual enterprises of computer science province. Courses cover algorithms (study of design, implementation and analysis of their performances), various data structures, different programming paradigms, software development (end to end life cycle), software systems (compilers, operating systems, and databases), architecture of computers (machine level data representation to instruction processing), computer applications systems (networks, websites, cryptography) and also covers much required hardware support through subjects like digital circuits, interfacing techniques. The course helps students to be industry ready by continuous exposure to real time problem solving environment.

To emerge as a center of excellence in Computer Science & Engineering education and research, and develop high caliber graduates groomed to become professionals possessing exceptional technical expertise, skills and ethical values, capable of providing innovative solutions to the problems at the national and global levels.


  • To create a robust ecosystem where academicians, concept developers, product designers, business incubators, product developers, entrepreneurs, mentors and financial institutions are brought together under one platform of the department.
  • To ensure that the students not only find answers for many of their questions, but also get valuable exposure to real life situations in the process.
  • To establish Project Environment in the Department, provide hands-on experience to students and thus facilitate them working in projects that have relevance to industry, and/or business applications or societal necessities.
  • To establish a process to channelize student effort towards acquiring relevant competencies and skills in their chosen technology areas and domain so that they are confident, self-reliant and deployable in Industry.
  • To create continuous learning environment for teachers by arranging Faculty Development Programs to upgrade their knowledge and empower them to develop effective training delivery and research skills.
  • To establish Research Centers in collaboration with Industries and Institutions of National/International repute and conduct research in emerging areas as well as socially relevant technical and domain areas through funded research projects.

About the Department:

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CS&E). We bestow our students with wide-ranging curriculum, well outfitted with the applicable as well as theoretical essentials of computer science. We have high profile educators and researchers as faculty to inculcate true desire for knowledge amongst the students and achieve excellence in schooling.
