The Department of Computer Science was established way back in the year 1991, with the blessings of His Holiness, with a vision to inculcate quality education to the geographically disadvantaged and under privileged students hailing from rural areas in and around Kanchipuram and train them in the ever changing field of Computer Science and IT . The department encompasses various UG and PG courses under its umbrella, namely B.Sc & M.Sc(Computer Science), BCA and M.Sc. Computer Science and Technology (5 years Integrated Course) boasting around 600 students in its wings.
The Department is streamlined with good infrastructure and equipped with a start-of-the-art Laboratory, consisting of over 150 computers with latest software and cutting-edge technologies, used to train the students to meet the growing demands of the ever evolving IT field.
The department is proud of having consistently producing University Rank Holders including First Ranks and Gold Medals both in the U.G and P.G levels.
The Department has established an association named SAINT(Sankara Association of INformation Technology) which provides a pool of innovative ideas and emerging trends for the young minds to thrive upon. It envisages new vistas for the budding talents to prosper.
In the odd-semester SAINT organizes a two-day State Level Symposium named “GOLDEN GATES” for the academicians and students alike from other institutes to present their research papers.
