The PG Department of Computer Science at STC was established in the year 2005 with the main objective of imparting knowledge on the latest trends in the field of computer science and enables the students to excel themselves in the field of research with analytical, creative and problem solving skills and to meet the current needs of the industry. The department has more than 100 diligent students and a team of dedicated and experienced faculty to mould the students to become smart in all aspects. The department conducts Board of Studies meetings every year to update the syllabus and introduce new courses based on the feedback from industry in consultation with field experts. The department is proud of its students association SAXON (Student Association for Excelling on New Technologies). The main motto of the association is to provide a platform for the students to achieve excellence in curricular and co-curricular activities and develop their leadership traits. The department, to its credit, releases a magazine TECHNOCHIP to motivate the students to publish articles in popular journals. It also offers summer internship training programmes and assists the project work by which students would get the opportunities to develop their programming skills and gain exposure to the work in the industry environment. Many of our graduated students are placed in reputed organizations like Infosys, Wipro, CTS, TCS,Tech Mahindra etc., and bring laurels to the institution.
The following are the other activities of the department:
- Guest Lectures
- Inter – Collegiate Meet
- Hardware and Software Expos
- Placement Training (through Talent sprint)
