Computer Science and Engineering

Computer Science engineering deals with design, implementation, and management of information system of both software & hardware processes. It integrates several disciplines such as Information Technology, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Software Design, etc. The engineers are mainly involved in the development of software and hardware systems of various aspects of computing.

Computer Science engineering includes testing and designing of computer components. It is also known as electronics & computer engineering or computer systems engineering. Professionals who work with computer hardware and software are known as computer engineers. There are 2 types of computer engineers. An individual who studies the computer programs are known as a computer software engineers. A candidate who studies the computer equipments are known as a computer hardware engineers. Computer engineers apply their knowledge of mathematics and science for the design and development of computers. Amongst all the engineering branches, computer science has been found to be the most popular choice of students.
