Ph. D. (Symbiosis International University, India), Associate Professor and Incharge Head, CS & IT department
The department endeavours to impart quality education to students in the areas of computer science and engineering and information technology with exposure to industrial problems and application development through specialization programmes, student workshops, industry internships, Value-added courses and Projects.
The department has very competent faculty certified and trained to teach advanced areas in computer science like cloud computing, software quality, cyber security, artificial intelligence and machine learning, blockchain technology, Internet of Things and so on.
The faculty is actively engaged in research and publications and has recognised projects to their credit in collaborations with industry, international universities and research labs of high repute.
Ms. Archana Atmaram Chaudhari (JRF) and Dr. Preeti Milind Mulay published patent on “A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ANALYSIS OF SMART METER DATA”
The students are actively engaged in application based projects as well as research projects with industry, R&D labs, research centres as well as international universities.M.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering)
Duration: Two years
M.Tech programmes have been designed to transform the students into competent professionals. The institute employs a very effective and interactive teaching-learning process using most recent teaching aids including multimedia. The curriculum has been developed considering the present and future needs of industry and higher education. Teachers prepare detailed presentations, lab manuals and course files to ensure the effectiveness of teaching-learning process. A salient feature of the curriculum is an Internship semester, totally devoted to carrying out projects in the industry. Students of all post graduate programmes spend an entire semester in industry, other organizations, renowned institutions and universities, both in India and abroad, as part of their curriculum. They are encouraged to undertake projects in various areas of the industry to augment their theoretical learning. The emphasis during the Internship is on exposing the students to real life problems in their chosen field of work and their solutions, using a systematic and logical approach employing latest tools, techniques and technologies. The Institute is making a conscious effort to shift from the traditional classroom teaching learning process to a problem based, project-based and scenario based teaching learning process. Students are given projects or problem statements right in the beginning of the semester and they undertake these projects either in groups or individually, depending on the nature of the project, and are guided by the subject teacher. Large, inter-disciplinary projects are also given and encouraged. For M. Tech courses, emphasis is given on the practical know-how and application of the subject matter and special emphasis is given on problem solving and self-learning.
Students participate in technical fests, present papers in conferences and also undertake projects in Industry during internship to augment their classroom learning with learning outside the classrooms.
It is necessary to give students an insight into the practical aspects of theory taught in the institute. The institute, right from its inception, has ensured industrial participation in curriculum development, guest lectures by experts from Industry, student trainings and internships. In addition to these, several industrial visits are also arranged for students in order to give them an exposure on the practical solutions and industrial environment.
SIU started Ph.D. programme in Engineering from the academic year 2010-2011. Presently 90 research scholars are pursuing their research from Faculty of Engineering. Research equipment and facilities have been established at SIT to carry out high quality basic and applied research. Faculty members send proposals to funding agencies for sponsored R&D projects in emerging areas of research. They also have a large number of publications in refereed journals and are actively engaged in publications. M.Tech students also get an opportunity to work on some sub- areas of larger research problems as their M.Tech projects and thesis. The institute regularly augments necessary equipment and facilities in the identified research areas.
