Since 2002, the Department of Computer Engineering, VIIT is dedicated to imparting quality education in the field of Computer Engineering. We now offer a four-year full-time Undergraduate (B.Tech.) degree program with an intake of 240. We offer a Postgraduate program as well, and this year we start with our Ph.D. program too.

The Computer Engineering program has been accredited three times by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) up to the year 2021. The department has state-of-art well-equipped laboratories and well qualified, experienced faculty who follow the NBA prescribed philosophy of outcome-based education (OBE). Our teaching is learner-centric, with importance given to achieving the objectives of the learning process. Our syllabus is in line with industry needs and includes contributions from industry experts. Various other activities and student interactions, in the department, are planned with a constant awareness of the graduate attribute that student should have at the end of the program.

In the past few months, during the lockdown period due to COVID-19 pandemic, systematic learning continued for our students. The faculty immediately switched to online delivery of lectures and practical sessions. Many other online activities were organized for students for proper utilization of time. Two such activities are a lecture series by Computer Society of India (CSI) and Machine Learning (ML) course by ACM.
