The Department of Computer Science was established to meet the demand for well-qualified computer professionals and was conceived in the year 1980. In our college, Computer Science Department established in the year 2006. The Department offers a 3-year degree program in Computer Science.
The program focuses on programming languages, theoretical computer science, Operating system, Statistics, Mathematics and Electronics, as well as software and application development. Department has well qualified vibrant faculty hold postgraduate degrees from reputed institutes with specializations in different subjects and are dedicated for the betterment of the students.
Most of the students passed out are well placed or have opted for higher studies. The department has provided a two well-equipped and well furnished computer labs, one Electronic lab and one Statistics and Mathematics lab with latest necessary computer software’s. The Laboratories are installed with broad-band internet facility.
The annual intake of students in First year is 80. The department ensures that program objectives are constantly met and learning outcomes are monitored through periodical tests and assignments.
In the department, student centric programmes like student classroom seminars, group discussions, learning through PowerPoint presentations, science exhibitions (poster presentation and project presentation) etc. are practiced. Quantitative and qualitative increase in results is the plus point of the department.
Establishment of the Departments
To meet with the new challenge and demand of the students SMBST society has taken a step in the field of Information technology by starting the department of Computer Science on December 2006 within a short span of time the department has made its name in the field of computer science in an around Sangamner city. The department is having good infrastructure, faculty as well as well equipped with other facility required.
Current view of department:
PROF.Chaugule I.L (M.SC. Computer Science, MBA (I.T.)) has been working as a HOD of the department. Department purchased 30 latest configuration computers for 2 new well established computer laboratories. Dept also provide internet facility to the student and the staff. All subject and syllabi related recent software’s are available on PCs for students. The enthusiastic and young staff is one of the plus point of the dept. Students take active participation in various curriculum activities like Avishkar, Science exhibition etc. The dept recently organized Spoken tutorials conducted by MHRD Mumbai. And the dept trying to progress more with the era.
Scope of the Course
There is bright career prospects for computer science professionals, with the opening of huge Information communication Technology industries in India, the job opportunities have increased considerably. A career in computer science has been proved lucrative and rewarding since last decades. The individual, who studies computer science not only learns the software aspect of the computer but also learns the knowledge of Operating system, Programming languages, database, Statistics, Mathematics, Reasoning skills and Electronics. Future opportunities in computing are without boundaries. This field is evergreen and many more developments are still to come. The digital age needs computer scientists.
Steve Ballmer stated that “Computer science is the Operating system for all the Innovation.”
Importance of the course
The most importance aspect of computer science is problem solving, an essential skill for life. Students study the design and development and analysis of software and hardware used to solve problems in a variety of businesses, scientific and social contexts because computer solves problems to serve people, there is significant human side to computer science as well.
Edsger W. Dijkstra states that “computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescope.”
Intake Capacity: 80 students
