Computer Science and Engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with computation technology and various aspects of computer systems. The computer engineers are responsible for the development of hardware and software systemhdsjhhahdhf s of a computer and various other high-grade computing technologies. The increased computerization and dependence on technology has led to an increasing number of students seeking admission in btech Computer science Engineering courses. The lucrative salary packages of computer engineers and various avenues of advanced research are the principal reasons for its popularity.
Course structure and duration
The duration of btech Computer science Engineering courses is 4 years spread over 8 semesters. The first semester and second semester are devoted to mathematics, applied physics, network theory, and data structure, engineering drawing practices, computer programming lab and semi-conductor devices. Third semester deals with data processing, logic design, and mathematics and file organization. Rest of the semesters involve a plethora of high-grade topics such as object oriented programming, operating systems, programming languages, system programming, microprocessors, computer networks, software engineering, java programming, data mining, robotics, etc. At the end of the course, the student is well prepared to take up various jobs such as computer programmer, software engineer, research and development engineer and many more.
Master of Technology courses in Computer science Engineering are available in many specialized fields such as electronics, database systems, java programming and website design, networking, computer systems and hardware, algorithms, computer architecture and many more. M.Tech degree in a chosen field expands the scope of employment and designation in a company. In order to get admission into an M.Tech course, the student must clear the GATE examination.
Diploma courses in Computer science Engineering is also offered by many colleges in the country. The duration of the course is 3 years and can be pursued in government polytechnic colleges or private institutions. The diploma course is designed to include all the basics of computer science such as networking, database, hardware and the programming languages.
Advantage of a diploma course is that the student can get admitted directly into the second year of a B.Tech program in Computer Science Engineering after obtaining the diploma. This is known as Lateral Entry. A diploma can also help in getting employment in computer hardware industry, consultancy services, electronics and communications industry, etc.
There are many colleges, both governments owned and private, where one can pursue a B.Tech course in Computer Science and Engineering. For example, St Andrews Institute of Technology and Management, Gurgaon offers a B.Tech in various engineering disciplines including Computer Sciences Engineering.
JEE Mains is the common basis of admissions in various engineering colleges all over the country. Some colleges also hold their own entrance test. Management quota seats are also offered by any private colleges. Admission into Computer Sciences Engineering program depends upon the number of seat available in the department and the JEE rank or the rank obtained in the entrance test organized by a particular college.
IIT Bombay, Delhi and Kanpur are the best colleges in India for pursuing Computer Sciences and Engineering. In order to get admission into these IITs, the student must clear the JEE Advanced with a very good rank.
