Department of Computer Engineering
The Department of Computer Engineering at the K. K. Wagh Institute of Engineering Education and Research, Nashik was established in the year 1984. Since then, especially in the last fifteen years of the IT revolution, the department has taken long strides and is now among one of the best departments in the University. The Department has well furnished laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software resources, instruction halls, a seminar hall and tutorial and faculty rooms. The Department has a blend of experienced and young faculty members who also work as mentors to the equally diligent, hardworking and intelligent students.
The Department offers four years Bachelors Degree Program in Computer Engineering with an intake of 120, two years Post Graduate Degree Program in Masters of Computer Engineering with an intake of 18 and a research center in Computer Engineering wherein Doctoral program is also offered. Currently there are 550 plus students are studding in department. Various activities and events such as Seminars, workshops, Conferences, symposiums, Short term training and certifications, Lecture programs, programming, quiz, project and web designing competitions are organized by the students under the guidance of faculty members through students’ club named as Debuggers’ club established in the year 1988, student branch of CSI established in the year 1996 and IBM’s center of Excellence established in the year 2010. Around 250+ students have obtained certification for IBM DB2 and RAD From IBM. Student group has won the first prize in IBM TGMC, a National level completion organized by IBM wherein 24000 students from 800+ colleges participated.
The department has excellent track record of University results as well as placements in industries. Our students have obtained ranks in the University examinations. Several fortune 500 IT industries such as TCS, NVIDIA, Accenture, Infosys, Wipro, Persistent Systems, Zensar, Patni Computers, L & T Info-tech, KPIT etc. visit our campus for campus Interviews and almost all eligible students are placed in these Industries. Many of our alumni are working at key positions in industries in India and abroad such as Oracle, IBM, GE, Microsoft, Yahoo etc. Many of our students have passed various competitive examinations such as GATE, GRE, Tofel, CAT, MAT etc with good scores and secured their admissions in premier educational Institutions in India and Universities abroad.
The Degree programme is spread over four years with two semesters in each year. Students study five theory courses and work on assignments in two or three laboratory courses in each semester. The first year of engineering is common to all disciplines. The students learn basic courses in Computer Engineering, such as Discrete Structures, Data Structures, Digital Logic and Microprocessors in Second Year Engineering. The courses such as Data Bases, Software Engineering, Signal Processing, Computer networks and Theory of Computation are offered in Third Year Engineering. Students present seminar on topic as per their interest and also carry out a mini project in a group of 3/4 students. In the Final Year Engineering students not only study core courses such as Algorithms, Compilers, Object Oriented Modeling, Advanced Computer Architecture, Distributed Operating Systems, but also choose elective courses as per their interest. Students’ also carryout project work geared to the needs of the industry.
The curriculum has in all thirty nine theoretical courses spread over the period of four years and makes the student conversant and provides an in depth knowledge.
We strive to impart basic knowledge of the vast area of Computers, which serves as the most apposite platform for students to pursue higher studies in their areas of interest.
