The Discipline of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) was set up in July 2009. It is one of the disciplines under the School of Engineering and offers Bachelor of Technology (BTech) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs. The discipline 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 discipline 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.
