PhD admission for AY 2024-25, PhD Admission application deadline has been extended till 20th May (Monday) Talk on Mathematical Thinking: Newton to Cyber Security via Euler by Dr. Prof. Suresh (Suraj) Kothari from Iowa State University, USA on November 17, 2023


The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) was set up in July 2009. The department offers Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.), Master of Science (M. S.) by Research and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) programmes. From 2023 onwards, the department offers a Master of Technology (M. Tech.) programme. The department adopts a modern approach to teaching wherein students are rendered in adequate academic freedom to innovate and learn in the process. The state-of-the-art facilities including the latest software and advanced hardware are available in various laboratories for use in both teaching and research. This facilitates adequate implementation of major B.Tech., MS (Research) and Ph.D. projects and for verification and validation of research results.

The department benefits from the location of the Institute. 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 other major IT organisations have set up their offices here. For the Department of CSE, this provides an excellent opportunity to foster industry-academia partnerships.

Vision and Mission

Vision: The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is looking to become a leader in fundamental and applied research on cutting edge technologies and know-how in the area of IT and Computer Science. It aims to become a top destination for knowledge dissemination in its field. The department has a very talented pool of faculty and support staff that facilitate its steady progress in this direction.

Mission: To stay ahead of the curve in the use and dissemination of knowledge on evolving technologies.



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 department. 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.
