Message from HoD...

Computer Science and Engineering serves as the foundation for various technological advancements that the world requires today. The field has grown by leaps and bounds. The future innovations that it brings along never seem to slow down. Yet another beauty of computer science and engineering is that it finds a place in many interdisciplinary fields as well. It is necessity to keep up to the global demand of finding highly skilled engineers and scientists. AMC Engineering College, one of the best technical institution in India drives on the purpose of providing quality education, employment and entrepreneurship and improving competence among students. We the Department of Computer Science and Engineering align our goals towards the same and expert engineers produced by us stand testimony to it.

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering was established in the year 1999, offering under graduate programs in computer science and engineering, CSE-Data Science, CSE-AIML and post graduate program in computer science and engineering with the annual intake of 240, 60, 60 and 18 students respectively. The laboratories of the department are well equipped with latest branded computers and other facilities, to fully satisfy the training needs of the students. A pre-placement training program and add-on courses (over and above the syllabi) from tie ups and MOUs with industries is in place and accommodated along with the class work from second year onwards.
