The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) was set up in July 2009. It is one of the department under the School of Engineering and offers Bachelor of Technology (BTech) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs. The department adopts a modern approach to teaching wherein students are rendered in adequate academic freedom to innovate and learn in the process. State of the art facilities including the latest software and advanced hardware are available in various laboratories for the use in both teaching and research. This facilitates adequate implementation of major B.Tech projects and for verification and validation of research results.

The faculty members of the department are from diverse streams and specializations. Being a part of an emerging and relatively new institute, together with extremely competent research faculty, the Computer Science and Engineering faculty of IIT Indore offer a unique interactive platform for the students to explore the arena of fundamental and applied research.

Indore is fast developing into a major IT hub in central India. Organizations like CSC and Impetus have a strong presence in the city and major players like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro are in the process of setting up their offices. For the discipline this provides an excellent opportunity to foster industry-academia partnerships.



The B.Tech. Program in Computer Science Engineering is a four-year program with selection through the IIT Joint Entrance Examination. Students are encouraged to work on research projects from their second year onwards in addition to course work and a semester long B.Tech. project offered in seventh semester. Projects undertaken are of inter‐disciplinary nature and involve faculty members from across disciplines. Its strong and interactive curriculum and hands‐on learning makes students capable of taking their career to the next level, whether it be in the professional engineering practice or in advanced study.
