About Department

Department of Computer Science and Engineering:

The Maharaja Sayajirao University was the first in the State of Gujarat to offer a Bachelor of Engineering Course in Computer Science and Engineering: BE(CSE) in the year 1982 and a Post-graduate three year Master of Computer Applications (MCA) course in the year 1984. Initially both the courses BE(CSE) and MCA were conducted  under Electrical Engineering Department. In 1987 Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established as an independent department. Ph.D (CSE) started in the year 2004. Since 2020 the MCA course is now offered for 2 year duration with an intake of 45 students.

It has been the endeavor of the department to bring excellence in every aspect of development and growth of departmental facilities both in teaching and extra-curricular activities. The main focus of the department is on strengthening UG/PG teaching, research in thrust areas and improving the infrastructure, which has resulted in reaching high degree of acceptance of students by IT industry reflecting almost 100%placement through campus recruitment.

The MSU Computer Alumni Association was started in the year 1998 and became very active and dynamic in the year 2012. Since then, the alumni association has continued to assist the department in the development of infrastructure, renovation and activities related to the growth and progress of the students.

Most of the Professors of the department hold Ph.D. degrees and are associated with NBA, NAAC, UGC CARE, UGC NET and UGC Standing Committee for Computer Centre and MCA course, AICTE Committees, Selection Committees of teaching staff etc., in several capacities. 
The Department is affiliated with other national level technical bodies like Computer Society of India (CSI), Institute of Engineers (IE), Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE) and Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). In collaboration with CSI, the department has been organizing several workshops, seminars and technical talks. The department is one of the major exam centers for the CCC+ exam of the Govt. of Gujarat.
