About Us

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offering the B.Tech (CSE) programme was established in the year 2009. It can be regarded as one of the first engineering departments conceived by the University of Kashmir. Although started with limited facilities, the department has made notable growth in all respects over the last few years. This includes development of labs, procurement of equipment, books and furniture, which has consolidated the department to provide just the right environment for young students pursuing the engineering degree in computer sciences.

One of the biggest advantages of the department is the strength of permanent faculty members. With six assistant professors assisted by as many contractual teachers, the department strives to maintain highest academic standards by putting in place best practices for ensuring smooth and efficient functioning of academics. Teaching-learning is systematic with an up-to-date curriculum. The major focus remains towards laboratory experiments and hands-on learning. Quality is stressed though standard mechanisms of monitoring and student feedback.

We believe in overall development of students and hence prime importance is given to student mentoring through regular counselling and interactions. Many batches have passed out with a significant number of students being absorbed in reputed industries and many others pursuing higher degrees like Ph.D in foreign universities.

We have recently conceived an innovative program called ‘Achievers Meet Aspirers’, which consists of guest lectures and interactive sessions by passed out students of our own department currently employed in the corporate IT sector. This is aimed at providing exposure and motivation to our graduating students. This year (2021), the department took a big step towards expansion with the commencement of M. Tech CSE programme which will provide great opportunity to candidates to pursue the said degree which is not yet offered in any other institution of the valley. 


The Department of Computer Science & Engineering consists of abundant and modern infrastructure that caters well to the curriculum needs of both the programmes offered i.e B.Tech CSE and M.Tech CSE. There is a setup of wide range of software and hardware resources to support the educational and research mission of the department. All the various equipment housed by the laboratories are of the highest quality/configuration. The following software/hardware resources are currently available:

Computer Labs: There are three capacious and fully networked computer labs consisting of modern desktop/All-in-one machines. All the three labs are ICT enabled with overhead projectors (OHPs) and ACs installed. 

System Development & Innovation Lab: The department has developed a special System Development & Innovation lab housing high-end desktop systems, microcontroller boards and kits that facilitates students to carry out project work and develop innovative solutions. 

Electronics & Communication/ Hardware Labs: The department consists of Electronics & Communication (E&C) and Hardware labs which include Digital Design Lab., Communication Lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab and Microprocessor Lab. These have all necessary apparatus in place including equipment like CRO, DSO, digital multimeter, power supplies, etc. and various kits/trainers viz. NV6513, ST2201, ST2202, etc. The said labs are also equipped with simulators like MATLAB, Logisim, LTspice, SPICE for electronic circuit simulation. 


Programming/Algorithms and Software Development: Code block, Dev C++, Turbo C++, Jupyter Notebook, JDK, XAMPP, Visual Studio Code, SASS, Jquery, PHP etc.

Data Science and Artificial Intelligence: Anaconda, MATLAB, Tableu, SPSS.

Networking: Cyber Security, and Cloud Computing: Cisco packet tracer, NetSim, NS2, NS3, Kali Linux, Wireshark, Vmware, Qemu, etc. alongwith networking devices like routers, hubs, switches. 

High Performance Computing Lab: The department has also set up a High Performance Computing lab that is equipped with highly optimized and scalable servers (with dedicated GPUs) capable of processing high workloads characteristic of areas such as artificial intelligence, data sciences and natural language/image processing. The said lab also houses an interactive flat panel display (IFPD) along with other ICT accessories which makes it truly state-of-the-art. The lab will be fully functional from Dec- 2021. 

Applied Sciences Labs: The applied sciences labs include labs for Physics and Chemistry. Both the labs are well equipped with basic infrastructure for conducting various experiments for the first-year students of B. Tech CSE. There is a dedicated Physics lab housing all essential equipment that provides a platform for experimentation and analysis. These include equipment such as Biot Savart’s Law, Wheatstone Bridge, Biprism apparatus, etc.

The Chemistry lab is equipped with all bench-level facilities and also comprises a chemical store. UV Spectrophotometer, distillation apparatus, and other such instruments are available in the said lab. 

In addition to this, there is a Mechanics lab for catering to the students of first year and consists of software like AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and SolidFace.

All the labs have dedicated and high-capacity UPS/battery bank systems installed in order to ensure a 24*7 power supply.

Library: The central library of the campus houses hundreds of books which include titles pertaining to core computer engineering and applied science subjects from reputed publishers such as Mc Graw Hill, Pearson, Wiley,etc. Further, books for competitive examinations like GATE, UGC-NET, etc. are available.


To transform students into good human beings, competent and responsible professionals, with focus on excellence in Education, Research and Technological development so that they can better serve the nation.
