Computer Science and Engineering

Overview

The department of Computer Science and Engineering was started in the year 2010 as part of the partnership between Loyola College Society (LCS), Chennai and ICAM, France to impart technical education and engineering expertise particularly to the poorer and marginalized society. The department offers an undergraduate programme with an intake of 60 students per year. The department maintains an active interaction with the industries to provide an exposure to the students and to bridge the gap between the industry and academia. 

Faculty and students of the department have been instrumental in developing and maintaining software applications ranging from Performance Evaluation System, Apps for Education, Learning Management System (Moodle), Enterprise wide Content Management System and various other campus wide networking activities. The department organizes National level technical events and competitions like Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Yatra and Srinivasa Ramanujan Mathematical Competition (SRMC).

The department is managing G-Suite for education to offer various ICT services offered by Google. It also provides various global certification programmes under Red Hat Academy since 2014. The department organizes and manages National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technologies (NMEICT), Faculty Development Programmes, College to Corporate Programmes and Aakash R&D offered by IIT Bombay and Kharagpur under MHRD, Government of India. A grant of around 20 lakhs has been received as part of this project.

The students of the department have brought out a number of innovative projects such as Project AR Labs, Implantable Hearing Machine, Project MicrOS, etc. The students and faculty members of the Department have made laudable contributions by developing software for campus management, attendance help line and on-line test. Many of the students are well placed in leading software companies such as Infosys, Tech Mahindra, SAP, Vernalis etc. As part of the MoU with ICAM, France, every year around 10 to 15 students along with a faculty member are sent to ICAM campuses in France to complete technical projects.

Our Vision
