Computer Science & Engineering

About the Department


The Department of Computer Science & Engineering was established in the year 2003 with B.E. (CSE) with an intake of 60 students. Presently the intake is 180. It is amongst very few CSE Departments in Engineering Colleges of Central India that has been accredited twice by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in 2013 & 2016. The CSE department offers PG program in M.E. (CSE) since the year 2009-10 with an intake of 18 students. There has been consistent development in all the spheres including infrastructure, staff and student strength. Well-equipped laboratories with high-end computers, high-speed internet (Broadband and Wi-Fi) facility and well-qualified staff members ensure excellent standards of education delivered by the department. Computer Science & Engineering is a dynamic and exciting area that provides excellent career opportunities in various sectors of the society. We are committed to give our students an environment where they develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they advance through the program.




Computer Society of India (CSI)

IIST is an institutional member of CSI. Under this platform, we conduct different workshops, seminars and trainings. Computer Society of India is the first and largest body of computer professionals in India. It was started on 6 March 1965 by a few computer professionals and has now grown to be the national body representing computer professionals.


State of the Art Lab Infrastructure


  • The Department of CSE is proud to introduce two State of the Art Infrastructure starting this academic session 2018-19.
  • They are the Mac/iOS development Lab with dedicated iMac machines of 3GHZ, 1TB, 8GB Ram and Internet of Things (IoT) lab for working on Smart City Projects.

ICT support for Learning

It is an initiative of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under the National Mission on Education through ICT. The Department of CSE conducts virtual labs programs organized by different IITs across the country.

IIST is conducting sessions of QEEE for different subjects organized by IITs. The Committee for Reforms in Technical Education under the chairmanship of Professor Ashok Jhunjhunwala, IIT Madras, has been constituted by the Ministry of Human Resources and Development (MHRD) with a mandate to bring about comprehensive reforms in technical education.

Massively Open Online Course (MOOCs) are aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as recorded lectures, readings and problem sets, many MOOCs provide interactive user forums to support interactions between students, professors and teaching assistants (TAs). MOOCs first introduced in 2008 is emerging as a popular mode of learning since 2012. Department of CSE encourages students to take MOOC once in every semester/year with the assistance of faculties to keep abreast with the latest trends in the sector.

Department of CSE has adopted Google Classroom to promote e-learning & teaching and online learning management system. Google Classroom is a blended learning platform for schools that aim to simplify creating, distributing and grading assignments in a paperless way. It was introduced as a feature of Google Apps for Education following its public release on August 2014. Its aim is to be a paperless educational system.


Message from Dean Academics & Research


It is high time that CS is emerging due to the IoT, Automation and Artificial Intelligence. With AI being there around the corner for more than 50 years, there is only a buzz very recently. This is primarily because of the cost cutting measures that the companies wanted to incorporate in their day-to-day activities. The Robots and the software could very well manage the repeated tasks performed by different people in the near future. With the various digital initiatives of the Government of India like Smart City, Digital India, etc. India is leading the digital revolution at the global level. However, the quality of engineers needed to implement the same is of a great concern. The focus of engineering education should be more towards practical learning that enhances the skillset of the learners. This could be achieved only with a proper infrastructure and well-qualified faculties who can lead Innovation and Research. At IIST, we are delighted to offer the state of the art platform for engaging the students in doing real-time projects that can solve the societal issues. The custom designed training courses to be offered across the years would enhance the employability of the students and make them confident enough to accept the challenges of the 21st century.
