The Department of Computer Science is one of the first two Departments established by the University in the year 2010. The Department initiated its teaching activities through a post-graduate program in Computer Applications in 2010 with a total intake of 30 students. The program was transformed to a more focused, rigorous and intensive program in Computer Science in 2011, as the faculty strength of the Department increased. To strengthen research activities of the University, the Department has instituted Doctor of Philosophy program with an early exit option with M.Phil. Degree. To create appropriate experimental setup for the proposed doctoral research program and the existing masters' students entering into their thesis component, the department has formulated a comprehensive laboratory plan with one general purpose computing laboratory and seven specialized laboratories, and has initiated the required procurement and installation process. At present, the Department of Computer Science consists of five regular and one visiting faculty members.
The research focus of the department is in the following areas:
