The research area of the Department is in the field of software engineering, data/knowledge based systems like data base systems and data warehousing systems, information systems and computer networking.
Computer Science & Engineering is a discipline that combines both electronic engineering and computer science. Computer engineers usually have training in Computer Science & Engineering, software design and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.
Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, designing VLSI chips, designing analog sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, and designing operating systems.
