Computer Science and Information Technology

CS & IT - News Letter - Issue 1

The Department of Computer Science and Information Technology was established in the year 1999. Initially the department introduced the Under Graduate Program in 1999; later in 2006 the Post Graduate Program was launched. Over the past few years, the department has acquired National and International Importance, which is achieved by the collective and responsible efforts of the faculty and the students.

Presently, it offers:

  • Associative Degree Programs  
    • Management Information System
    • Information Science & Technology
    • Computer Science majors
  • Bachelor degree programs  
    • Management Information System
    • Information Science & Technology
    • Computer Science majors
  • Master degree program (M.Tech.)
    • Computer Science.

The department has well qualified faculty and staff members. The Department follows principles to maintain the quality of Teaching and Research. At present, the department has 20 faculty members in all, with 7 PhD and 13 Master qualifications. The department periodically conducts seminars, workshops, faculty induction program and industrial visit for the benefit of staff and students.

Vision

To be in forefront of technology and innovation of Computer Science that permeates all modern endeavors in academia aimed towards betterment of society and developing the ways to success through IT.

Mission

Our mission, as a constituent unit in the academic mission of the Mazoon College, is to:

  • Design, implement, and modernize a high quality educational environment in computer science that contributes to knowledge in fundamental and applied areas.
  • Maintain an awareness of current needs, and anticipated future needs of the community by recognizing the growing interdisciplinary nature of computer science. 
  • Provide undergraduate education with a strong background in the fundamentals of computer science to foster intellectual maturity, to emphasize knowledge that is relevant to technological and business needs, and to prepare the student for advanced studies.
  • Promote graduate education with a leading edge research in the major areas of computer science and to educate students with an enriched research experience relevant to an industrial or academic career.

Goals

The following goals were developed as a reflection of the Computer Science programs philosophy and mission.

  • Computer Science graduate students will demonstrate competence in problem solving based on the application of logic and mathematics to developing, adapting and understanding algorithms and data. 

The students will be able to employ the following components of the scientific method:

  • Understanding of a problem
  • Formal specification of a problem
  • Experimental design
  • Implementation of a solution
  • Output data analysis
  • Communication of results 

The students will graduate with an understanding and appreciation of the connections between levels of design and organization as they pertain to systems, interface, software, hardware, networks and operating systems. Computer Science graduate students will be able to thoughtfully communicate and integrate ideas in both oral and written form. The students will graduate with proficiency in design, computer programming, and machine organization. Computer Science graduate students will be able to work effectively in groups as both leaders and collaborators.

The students will graduate with an appreciation of the complexity and ambiguity of ethical issues relevant to the development, acquisition, dissemination, and responsible use of technology and be able to apply ethical principles in their personal and professional lives. The Computer Science Department programs will encourage intellectual engagement leading to lifelong learning and independent research. Computer Science graduate students will be grounded in theory so that they can keep up with the dynamic changes in technology.

Graduate Attributes

  • Be able to use a range of programming languages and tools to develop computer programs and systems that are effective solutions to problems.
  • Be able to understand, design, and analyze precise specifications of algorithms, procedures, and interaction behavior.
  • Be able to apply mathematics, logic, and statistics to the design, development, and analysis of software systems.
  • Be equipped with a range of fundamental principles of computer science that will provide the basis for future learning and enable them to adapt to the constant rapid development of the field.
  • Have experience of working in teams to build software systems.
