Computer Science and Engineering stream started in 2009. IIITDM Kancheepuram’s Computer Science and Engineering curriculum is modeled on the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) recommendations and is the first of its kind engineering program offered in India. This program is aimed at producing engineers equipped with skills required for efficient hardware-software interaction. In addition to courses offered by the conventional Computer Science curriculum, this novel program offers core courses such as Embedded Systems, Human-Computer Interaction, Signals and Systems, Product Design etc., that equip the students with both computing and electronics engineering skills that are very much required for the successful creation of products requiring hardware - software interactions. Our graduates would find wide scope in VLSI, Embedded Systems and Electronics Product Manufacturing related industries in addition to application development avenues and higher studies that are open to conventional Computer Science engineers. The laboratories are equipped with powerful Deep Learning Engine, HP Workstations, FUJITSU Windows Server, IBM Debian Linux server and network infrastructure such as the ISDN equipment, network distribution switches, fire- wall and redundant wireless access controller to cater to the computing needs of the institute practice courses. The Institute is also equipped with a personal Super Computer employing 4 Tesla cards giving a peak performance of 4.12 Tflops to assist in the advanced courses on Computer Architecture, Advanced Structure/Algorithms, Database Data Management/Knowledge Engineering and Image Processing. The HCI laboratory houses a powerful image processing workstation with intel x5690 6 core processor with dual monitor support.
Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) offers design centric programmes such as B.Tech (CSE), B.Tech(CSE with Major in AI), Dual Degree (DD) programmes (B.Tech in CSE and M.Tech in CSE), M.Tech.(CSE with Specialization in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence) and Ph.D in various research areas in computer science. The department has enthusiastic students numbering around 550 which includes B.Tech, DD students, M.Tech and Ph.D scholars. There are 14 faculty members who are actively involved in research in areas such as knowledge engineering, machine learning, wireless sensor networks, membrane computing, cyber-physical systems, IOT, high performance computing, VLSI architectures, biometrics, machine learning, image processing, soft computing and theoretical computer science.
