The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at GIFT offers Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in Computer Science& Engineering. Gandhi Institute For Technology (GIFT), Bhubaneswar, is accredited by NAAC with Grade A++’. The department of CSE got NBA accreditation for its quality teaching, efficacious academic result, enviable placement, majestic infrastructure and facilities. It is an ISO: 9001-2018 certified institute accredited by IAO, USA. GIFT is also recognized and accredited as a ‘Scientific & Industrial Research Organization (SIRO)’ by the Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India.

The Computer Science & Engineering Department became operational in 2007 since the inception of GIFT, with 60 students admitted through OJEE per AICTE guidelines. Our department also started the movement of robotics in the year 2008, and now it has become part and parcel of the culture of GIFT. The department has taken several initiatives to bridge the gap between industry and academia by conducting training and certification programs such as DB2, Android, Oracle, .NET, and SAP. It has its own Software Development Centre, which has significantly contributed to the development of CMS (College Management System) and is effectively operational now. The department is running Campus Connect Program in collaboration with Infosys Ltd.

Currently, the Department of CSE is enriched with 25 faculties. They contribute their knowledge to build vibrant academics and utilise their skills to apply computing science to solve real-life research problems. The department stresses the application-based aspects through laboratories, seminars, group discussions, viva-voce and project work, keeping pace with the growth in Computer Technology.

Information Science & Application Society

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering formed its Society, “Information Science & Application Society” (ISAS), on 21st January 2012. The Society has conducted several seminars, workshops and conferences in collaboration with IIT Bombay, ISTE and CSI.

Why Computer Science?

Computing and computer technology are part of our daily activities, from the cars we drive to the movies we watch and the many ways we interact with each other. Understanding the many facets of computing is necessary for any educated person in the 21st century. Whether you want to create the next hot application or need to map your next big idea for the boss, studying computing will give you a competitive edge, the ability to solve complex problems and a career that will never be obsolete. To keep your job on the cutting edge and marketable in any business environment, the field of Computer Science & Engineering is the only choice.

HOD’s Message

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) is where future leaders learn to design technology that solves problems and improves lives. The department is recognized as one of the top computing programs in India. We have passionate faculty, exciting research, excellent student job prospects, and a supportive community.

Computers are the most flexible and powerful machines ever created. And while the field of computing constantly grows and changes, the core magic of CSE remains timeless: students educated here build solutions for various problems, which supports Society to bring a significant difference in the world.

Our students learn the mathematical foundations of computing; get hands-on experience building software and hardware; and choose advanced courses such as human-computer interaction, computer graphics and animation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, data science, natural language processing, computer networking, computational biology, computer security and privacy, and much more. The department conducts regular Conferences, Seminars and Workshops on the above cutting-edge technologies and promotes active Industry-Institute collaboration by identifying areas of interest.

Our professors are great teachers who prioritise student education and are world-class researchers at the forefront of their field. Our faculty are qualified with M. Tech and PhD degrees and highly exposed to Industries, so students can be confident that they learn from the best. Most of our faculties work with student researchers who want real experience creating new technology. After graduating, most of our alums work at tech companies worldwide, from enormous tech titans to the smallest startups. The department has successfully ensured placement of students in top-notch companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Google, Nokia, HP, Infosys, Wipro, TCS, L&T, Tech Mahindra, Mind Tree etc., with lucrative packages.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering has taken a giant stride since its inception and offers a 4-year B Tech programme with an intake of 180 seats and M Tech with 25 seats.
