Computer engineering department in association with user industry will harness knowledge and potential for application based product development in future, through world-class education to empower the society around.
Computer Engineering department will be the widely recognized center of excellence for promoting value added engineering education. We will contribute by evolving innovative technology solutions to solve a wide range of complex scientific, technological and social problems.
The Department of Computer Engineering was established in 2004-05 with affiliation to University of Pune, recognized by Directorate of Technical Education, Maharashtra State & AICTE, New Delhi with an initial intake of 60 students for UG Programme. Intake increased to 120 in 2006-07, and the present intake for the UG programme is 180 with an additional intake of 60 by second shift in 2010-11. We are also running Two Master programmes in Computer Engineering & Computer Networks.The student to teacher ratio is 15:1.
What do we do?
The Department emphasizes on all round development of the students, to make them competent engineers. The Department has well qualified and experienced faculty members and technically competent supporting staff. Being fully residential campus a unique opportunity in terms of availability of students for 24 hours exists here. A unique model of Value Addition Programmes (VAP) is implemented to ensure project based learning (PBL). VAP has been proved to be a successful tool to bridge the gap between University curriculum and industry expectations. Presentations, Group Discussions, various competitions and technical festivals proved to be useful for life skill development of students.
How do we do?
We have taken efforts in order to get industry sponsored projects so that students get exposed to industry environment. Campus extended programs by a good number of industries has added much more learning to students. As a part of this we have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IBM, Infosys Ltd for their campus connect programmes. The efforts taken by the department with this regard are also appreciated by IBM into the national event titled as "The Great Mind Challenge 2010-11" (TGMC) were SIT is in top 30 based on quality of projects displayed by department. We are able to achieve consistent placement of students with focused placement training, starting in 3rd year itself and preparing them for placement interview. The companies visiting the college include Infosys, TCS, Cognizant, Persistent, TechMahindra, Accenture, Tata Technologies, NVIDIA , Iautix, Capgemini etc. The official students' forum of the department is "ACES", which conducts seminars, workshops, and technical events to help students improve their knowledge and develop leadership qualities. The students are encourage to do innovative projects, and participate in National and International competition.
Program outcomes (PO’s):
Students are expected to know and will be able to:
i) Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
ii) Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
iii) Design/Development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
iv) Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions for complex problems:
v) Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
vi) The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
vii) Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
viii) Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
ix) Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
x) Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
xi) Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
xii) Life-long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological change.
