DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

 

Rajveer Singh - Director, School of Computing & IT, MUJ

Computer Science is at the frontier of technological advancements and thus we have the onus to be amongst the leaders to further advance the knowledge and exploit the same for humanity. In the School of Computing and IT (SCIT), every effort is made to keep pace with latest pedagogical paradigms and practices including MOOCs, Online Learning, webinars; the tools/aids for modern teaching; ever-evolving syllabi keeping pace with technological advancement and industry trends etc. At SCIT, we strive to imbibe the virtues of 60+ years of Manipal education system amongst the newly inducted faculty. The depth of subject knowledge is the key for its effective dissemination to students and thus, each member of the school is engaged in research tapping the frontiers of technology.

The research work is supported through internal endowment grants and external funding. To prepare students for immediate absorption in the industry, an exposure is offered through problem based research projects during the 6th/8th semester. In the same vein, enriching the laboratory experience through mini projects as well as interaction with industry by way of expert lectures and lab exercises drawn from projects running in field. The Project Based Learning (PBL) offers the students to develop problem solving aptitude and enhance skills for applying classroom learning. Working on live projects offered by industry partners is is being focussed at the school, leading to industry recognized certifications.

SCIT is major school of MUJ with its four UG and two PG programs with commensurate numbers of experienced faculty. Due to large demand in industry, data science is being offered at both UG and PG level. Information Security skills are in huge demand, specially during COVID-19 pandemic, and thus, our PG program aims at addressing scarcity the skills. We also connect with computing experts at large through quality events. Our three series of quality conferences, Smart Systems – Innovation Through Computing (SSIC), Intelligent Communications and Computational Techniques (ICCT), and Innovations in Computational Intelligence and Computer Vision (ICICV) have established themselves well in computing fraternity of India and abroad. Our strong industry partnerships with Amazon, Cisco, Dell, EC Council, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, RedHat, VMware, etc allows students to participate in their flagship events, beg prestigious internships and many turning into placements. Due to such exposure, our students are selected in large numbers by Fortune 500 companies.

We have long way to go in terms of establishing SCIT as one of the best schools in India. Based on the recent COVID-19 crisis, we have adopted online academic engagement focusing on quality delivery courses to the students using state of art technology platforms.

I wish the students of SCIT very best of learning and excellent career. For the ones who are yet to join, a promising lively environment awaits, with latest and industry-focussed curriculum, equally dedicated but experienced quality faculty, and state of art labs with open source and commercial software.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Apart from the three UG programs, School of Computing & Information Technology (SCIT) also offers postgraduate programs in Computer Science and Engg, Advanced Computing and Data Science (ACDS) and Information and Network Security (INS), the latter two in collaboration with Centre of Development of Advanced Computing, CDAC, Pune (A Govt of India undertaking). Doctoral programs are very popular, with a substantial number of research scholars, both full time and part-time on the rolls. The School has a highly qualified and motivated faculty in its three Departments. The faculty is not well versed with teaching and research, but also active in conducting international conferences, seminars and workshops. Their expertise is now also being channelized to engage with industry in terms of consultancy developing state of art solutions for business problems. 

The teaching and research work at the School is amply supported by a number of core subject labs aided by industry standard commercial hardware and software  platforms like Nvidia, Param Shavak Super Computer, Oracle, EMC2,  Microsoft Office365 cloud, .Net, Azure etc.  There are special projects labs for  IoT and data analytics as well as Open Source Wireless Platforms like WARP.

 

The School is focused on  preparing students to meet the ever-increasing technological and social challenges with traditional self-discipline, hard work, all-round personality development and a creative approach to problem solving. We also promote and nurture the spirit of innovation and enterprise in our students from the first semester itself, so as to enable them, not only to be industry ready, but also to be job creators, not just job seekers. To this end, we have engaged with industry to provide a flexible and interdisciplinary, credit-based curricular structure to students. SCIT has collaborative programs for students and faculty, with many IT  giants Dell, Microsoft,  EMC2, Oracle, Nvidia, Intel, TI, ARM, EC Council, etc. The School also provides ample opportunity and encouragement to its students to participate in various sports and other extra and co-curricular activities, to help them develop a well-balanced personality.
