The Department of Computer Science was established way back in the year 1998, with the blessings of His Holiness, with a vision to inculcate quality education to the geographically disadvantaged and under privileged students hailing from rural areas in and around Kanchipuram and train them in the ever changing field of Computer Science and IT . The department encompasses various UG and PG courses under its umbrella, namely BCA and M.Sc. Computer Science and Technology (5 years Integrated Course) boasting around 600 students in its wings.
The Department is streamlined with good infrastructure and equipped with a start-of-the-art Laboratory, consisting of over 150 computers with latest software and cutting-edge technologies, used to train the students to meet the growing demands of the ever evolving IT field.
The department is proud of having consistently producing University Rank Holders including First Ranks and Gold Medals both in the U.G and P.G levels.
The Department employs an Integrated Package of Innovative practices for career development of the students. They include,
· Organizing Department Forums every week in a bid to enhance Interpersonal Skills and Competitive Spirit among students, wherein the students are indulged in paper presentation, group discussion and other activities. “IT ALERT FORUM” is being organized by the PG students. “STEEPING STONES” is the other forums being organized by the final year students of B.C.A respectively.
· Conducting specialized Placement Training Programmes to our students with the help of corporate trainers that gives them an edge over others during company interviews and placement offers.
· Organizing Recruitment Programmes, by inviting reputed IT-companies and MNC’s such as INFOSYS, HCL, WIPRO, TCS, CTS, IBM for an on-campus placement to give the much needed impetus to our students’ career.
· Organizing Guest Lectures delivered by eminent scholars and professionals in an effort to make our students be aware of the current trends in IT and instil new ideas into their minds.
The Department has established an association named SAINT(Sankara Association of INformation Technology) which provides a pool of innovative ideas and emerging trends for the young minds to thrive upon. It envisages new vistas for the budding talents to prosper.
In the odd-semester SAINT organizes a two-day State Level Symposium named “GOLDEN GATES” for the academicians and students alike from other institutes to present their research papers.
