Computer Science and Engineering
Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) encompasses a variety of topics that relates to computation, like analysis of algorithms, programming languages, program design, software, and computer hardware.
Computer Science Engineering has roots in electrical engineering, mathematics, and linguistics. In the past Computer Science was taught as part of mathematics or engineering departments & in the recent days it has emerged as a separate engineering field.
As per Wikipedia; Computer Science is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers. It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications and the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information.
Computer Science & Engineering is one of the most sought after courses by Indian students, thanks to the software and IT boom of the past two decades. Apart from putting India on the global map, computer science has pretty much changed the whole landscape of how people live. Right from social media to the genomics revolution, computer science has played a central role in many of the greatest technological innovations and developments of the 21st century.
Computer Science Engineering in BMS College
The Department of Computer Science in BMS College of Engineering was started in 1983 with an intake of 60 students for undergraduate programme. The intake was increased to 90 seats in 2000 and 120 in 2011. The department of Computer Science & Engineering also has PG programme, M Tech (CSE) established in 1992 with an intake of 18.
The Research Centre, Department of Computer Science started in the year 2010 under VTU, Belgaum. The research areas of the center covers machine learning, cloud computing, big data analytics, wireless networks, social networks analysis etc. Currently there are seven registered guides, who are experts in fields like artificial intelligence, wireless networks, medical imaging, computational accelerators, etc. There are 20 research scholars working in the research center.
The department has well qualified, experienced and committed faculty to provide quality industry tuned education to the students. The Department Infrastructure fulfills the requirements of academics, supports research and learning skills on the latest technology in the industry.
The vision of the department is “To be a model centre for education and training in the frontier areas of Computer Science and Engineering.”

Careers after Computer Science Engineering
Job opportunities are available for Graduates in Government as well as Private sector. They can be:
Software Developers – Software developers are professionals who are concerned with facets of the software development process which involves activities such as design and coding, computer programming, project management, etc.
Hardware Engineers – These professionals do research, design, develop, test, and oversee the installation of computer hardware which inter alia includes computer chips, circuit boards, systems, modems, keyboards, and printers.
System Designer – Professionals involved in system designing, Logical & Physical Designing wherein logical designing can be enumerated as the structure & characteristics such as output, input, files, database & procedures, etc.
System Analyst – Computer engineers who work as systems analyst do research about the existing problems and plan solutions for the problem. They also recommend software and system related problems and coordinate development between business development teams.
Networking Engineers – Networking engineers are computer professionals involved in designing, implementation, and troubleshooting of computer networks.
DBA – DBA or Database Administrator are the professionals who are bestowed with the job to design, implement, maintain, and repair an organization’s database. Inter alia DBA professionals are also known as Database Coordinator or Database Programmer in IT sector.
Demands of Computer Science Engineering
B.Tech or B.E in Computer Science Engineering is on high demand now-a-days, every student are running to be an computer science engineer, even 3 out of 5 parents wanted their son/daughter to an engineer in computer science branch.
Computer Science Engineers are paid very well all over the world, be it in India or abroad. However, salary varies greatly and is highly dependent on student’s academic profile and university reputation. Average starting salary is generally between 3-5 Lakh Rupees an year.
Placements for Computer Science Engineering at BMS College of Engineering are too good, almost all students get placed at good salary package.
