Computer science and Engineering is a discipline that spans theory and practice. It requires thinking both in abstract terms and in concrete terms. The practical side of computing can be seen everywhere. Nowadays, practically everyone is a computer user, and many people are even computer programmers. Getting computers to do what you want them to do requires intensive hands-on experience. But Engineering in Computer Science can be seen on a higher level, as a science of problem solving. It embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment.
History of Christ University:
Christ University was formerly Christ College (Autonomous) affiliated to Bangalore University. Established in July 1969, Christ College became the most preferred educational institution in the city of Bangalore within the first three decades. From 1990 onwards it scaled from heights to heights. By the introduction of innovative and modern curriculum, insistence on academic discipline, imparting of Holistic Education and with the help of the creative and dedicated staff, Christ College has been continually rated among the top 10 educational institutions of the country. It has the rare distinction to be the first institution in Karnataka to be accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) UGC for quality education. On 7 October 2004, UGC has conferred Autonomy to Christ College (No.F.13-1/2004). On May 20, 2005, it became the first College in South India to be reaccredited with A+ by NAAC. UGC has identified it as an Institution with Potential for Excellence in June 2006.
July 22, 2008 is the most glorious day in the history of the institution. Under Section 3 of the UGC Act, 1956, Ministry of Human Resources Development of the Union Government of India, vide Notification No. F. 9-34/2007-U.3 (A), has declared it a Deemed to be University, in the name and style of Christ University
History of Computer Science and Engineering in Christ University:
The Discipline of Computer Science and Engineering, a 4 year Under Graduate Programme in Christ University was started in the year 2009 with 5 students and 1 faculty member. The initial importance of the study was on Programming Paradigms and the fundamental objective was to provide the opportunity for our students to develop a firm foundation in Mathematics, Science, and Design Methodology. The teaching pedagogy was limited to just Class Room Teaching and Power Point Presentations.
Later in the year 2011, 3 more programmes augmented, a 4 year Under Graduate Programme in Information technology, 2 year Post Graduate Programme in Computer Science and Engineering and a PhD programme. Also certificate programmes in Algorithms and Matlab too was included in the curriculum to enhance learning skills and to cope up with the Industry Standards. The importance of the study changed towards the soft computing skills. In the year 2013, a Post Graduate Programme in Information Technology started. The teaching methods evolved with the usage of Video Films on actual situations, Case Studies, Seminars, Industry visits, Poster Presentations, Projects and the MOODLE – A Learning Management System.
Evolution from Teacher Centric Teaching to Student Centric Teaching, The Discipline covers all fundamentals, working and expert subjects that provides enough learning environment where students understand and are able to apply the most contemporary and essential tools needed in the breadth and depth of computer science and engineering.
Also the department provides various skills and activities like Leadership, Management, and Placement through a common forum named ASCII (Association for Students of Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology with Innovation). The department assist our students in developing and evaluating methods that encourage them to continue to learn after leaving the university and aims for students to become Academic Intellectual Entrepreneurs.
Today, the Discipline has evolved to address highly specialized and specific application needs of the world including various domains like Data Sciences, Machine Learning, Digital Image Processing, Cloud Computing and so on. Today all these programmes in the Department are aiming for Holistic Development of an Individual and to Foster ethical computational excellence in all areas of technology and to benchmark the Institute as one of the top-notch global institutions.
