The first thing you might think a computer science graduate does is programming. Programming is a tool we all use, but primarily CS graduates solve problems. They are creators, designers, analysts, etc. They work with people to develop innovative ways to harness the power of computing to address problems in almost every discipline and industry sector. The programmer working long hours alone in a cubicle is mostly a myth -- and it is the kind of a job that is easily outsourced. Software engineer is a common job title for a CS graduate. Software engineers are not programmers; rather they are developers of complex solutions to a variety of important applications in almost all economic sectors. Computer engineers have similar roles, but typically emphasize integrated hardware/software solutions. Software and computer engineers have a role as analysts - working with customers, end users and other stakeholders to develop requirements, constraints and approaches - before they begin development. Specialists in systems analysis (computer/software/IT analysts) often work for consulting companies or as experts within other companies where they represent a company's interests and work with developers. Software/computer engineers play a role as systems architects where they develop or adapt high-level designs and solutions that guide the development of specific projects or families of products. Software and computer engineers may begin as testers or in product support as they expand their skills. Often, career paths will lead developers into management positions where they direct other engineers, analysts, architects, testers and product support personnel. Software and computer engineers who specialize in specific solution components may have job titles such as database analyst, communications engineer, network architect, etc.

Computer Science is primarily concerned with information processes, the structure and procedures needed to represent them, and the systems needed to implement them. Spanning a broad spectrum of basic and applied subdisciplines which range from foundations in logic and the computational complexity of algorithms through compilers, operating systems, and databases, the discipline continues to expand in terms of new architectures, networks, vision, robotics, and computer-aided design.

Performance Improvement Programme (PIP)
The staff members of Computer sceince department conducted performance improving program (PIP) for  T.Y.B.Sc. and M.Sc students wherein the students were coached to enhance their performance in the University Examination. The programme included:
  • A detail question bank for all chapters were  given to the students.
  • Expected answers are given in form of points.
  • Two preliminary examinations were conducted to help the students cope up with the stress of appearing in examinations.

Soft Skill Training & Placement
Under the skillful guidance of Ms. Amruta Philip, Development officer (Soft Skills), the students of T.Y.B.Sc and M.Sc were enlightened on topics like- Self awareness,  Assertiveness technique, Stress management, Time management, Interview skills and Group discussion, during the year.

The students also got an opportunity to interact with the corporate world during group discussions and mock interview boards.
