What is Computer Engineering?
Computer engineering is the branch of engineering that integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. Computer engineers design and develop computer systems and other technological devices.
Works by Computer Science Engineer
A computer engineer, also called a software engineer, is responsible for developing, testing and evaluating the software that make our computers work. They may help in the development of new computer games and business applications, or even in the design of entirely new operating systems.
The Department of Computer Science Engineering & Information Technology at CLGIET has shaped itself to meet this challenge and
prepare the future computer professionals by the way of bringing change in teaching methodology, students participation in
seminars and project work. The programme provides intensive training to the students at advanced level to enable them to take
up research and development activities. The course curriculum has been specially tailored to fulfill the growing global outlook
and focus on upcoming technologies in the field of computer science to cater to the needs of the industry and R&D organizations.
To achieve the above, the department has a computer center and hi-tech labs equipped with latest software and hardware
technologies. With this background, the passing out candidates would be in much better position to carry out activities like
software design, development testing and R&D.
The Faculty is actively involved in research and development activities. The Faculty members of the Department have actively
participated in National Conferences and Seminars.
The Department interacts with Information Technology Industry to augment the teaching methodology with industrial needs to provide
industrial experience to the students to help them to focus their energies in the right direction .It has developed state- of -art
laboratories in various fields of Computer Engineering, Database Management Systems, Computer Networking, Artificial Intelligence,
Software Engineering, Multimedia, CAD/ CAM, Web Designing, etc. The thrust areas of the Department are Computer Networking, Neural
Networks, Distributed Computing, Software Engineering, Databases and programming language.
Today Computers have not only assumed strategic importance in the corporate world, they are also being effectively used in almost
every field of human endeavor, ranging from space exploration to food processing and banking to communication etc.
The Six main sectors in this field are:
1. Hardware & Networking:
This includes the physical elements of the computer system and deals with the designing, manufacturing and maintenance of
computers. This area also includes the assembling of the manufactured components of the computers.
Installing & integrating computer systems on one or at many locations over Networks for better connectivity among businesses.
2. Software Engineering & Development:
This includes the set of instructions by which a computer is programmed for working and performing of specified tasks
Programs may be for controlling the functioning of the computers or they may also be some user-friendly programs for specific needs
3. Services & Application Support:
Systems integration & applications management
Networking & data base management
Installation & maintenance of software applications.
4. Business Development & Customer Relationship Mgt. (CRM):
In IT, these are akin to the Sales & Marketing activities.
As Software solution providing is essentially a consulting discipline the marketing is highly technical & termed Business Development.
5. Research and Development:
It involves designing of chips and circuits, computer architecture and integration of peripherals.
It also includes improvement and upgrading of the existing systems, softwares& applications.
6. I.T. & Infrastructure Management:
Managers ensure that the development and operations work goes on smoothly.
They look after the allocation of resources and planning. B. Tech (CS or IT) + MBA) are much sought after in this segment.
The Major Recruiters for this field are: Infosys, Accenture, Syntel, IBM, TCS, ORACLE, WIPRO, HCL Comnet, Mahindra Satyam, L&T
Infotech, Birlasoft, Interglobe, Patni Computers, Seclore Technologies, Hexaware Technology.
