Computer Science and Engineering
Computer science (or computing science) is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation, and of practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems.It is frequently described as the systematic study of algorithmic processes that create, describe and transform information. The general public sometimes confuses computer science with vocational areas that deal with computers (such as information technology), or think that it relates to their own experience of computers, which typically involves activities such as gaming, web-browsing, and word-processing. However, the focus of computer science is more on understanding the properties of the programs used to implement software such as games and web-browsers, and using that understanding to create new programs or improve existing ones. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering established in 2008 ( previously under Electronics and Communication Engineering Department ), offers the B. Tech and Phd. programmes.
Electronics & Communication Engineering
The Department of Electronics & communication offers B. Tech programme in Electronics & communication Engineering covering modern communication and software technologies. Keeping in mind the great potential and demand for new communication technologies, the Department aims at imparting its students with the latest knowledge in the field. To complement this the Department has well stocked laboratories housing various modern equipments to enable the students to keep pace with the fast changing technology.
The Mechanical Engineering Department is one of the oldest and finest Departments in the region. The workshops of the Department contain highly sophisticated machines presenting a unique and unparalleled quality. Various research & development activities undertaken by the Department put the students on busy schedules enabling them to blend to the modern industry requirements.
The Department of Electrical Engineering of NIT, Silchar is one of the finest and well equipped Electrical departments of the north-east region. It boasts of having a highly qualified faculty with an unparalled level of expertise in their field. Under the able Headship of Dr. A.K. Sinha and a 14 strong faculty team, the Department offers an 8 Semester B.Tech. Programme in Electrical Engineering, a four Semester M.Tech. Programme in Power Energy Systems Engineering and also a well integrated Ph.D. programme. The department offers core courses in Power Systems, Control Systems, Electrical Machines, Instrumentation, Switchgear and Industrial Protection, Microprocessors and Microcontrollers etc. Apart from these, the final year students can choose from a wide array of electives in the form of Computer Aided Power Systems, Flexible AC Transmission etc. In coordination with the highly stimulating lectures and quality enhancing tutorials in these courses, various practical courses are also held in the state-of-the-art Lab facilities of the department like Machine Lab, Measurement Lab, Circuit Theory Lab and Microprocessor Lab, to name a few.
The Department of Electrical Engineering is dynamic and vibrant in true sense. Various research and development activities taken up by the department put the students on busy schedules enabling them to blend to the modern industrial requirements. The course structure is constantly restructured to meet the ever changing requirements of the volatile industrial market, keeping the essence of the core Electrical Engineering intact.
