On behalf of my colleagues, I
am delighted to welcome you to the Department of Computer Science and
Engineering. We are actively engaged in an exciting and forward looking
programme of teaching and research.
I hope that the information on
these pages reflects this vision and will motivate you to learn more about
us with a view to participating in our programmes - whether as a student, a
member of staff, or industry collaborator or sponsor. If you have an
opportunity to visit us in person, you are assured of a warm welcome.

The Department was started in
1987 with Dr. N. Chalamaiah who was the first head. The Department of
Computer Science and Engineering is a
center for top-quality education and research in Computer Science and
Currently, as one of the
largest Undergraduate Programs in the JNTU College of Engineering, Kakinada,
the enrollment in the Department includes 40 Undergraduate students in
Computer Science and 40 in Computer Applications. We also have around 120
Post-Graduate students in Computer Science.
The number of faculty members
in the Department has been steadily increasing. They are not only providing
high quality undergraduate and graduate education to the students, but also
are immersed in cutting-edge research which covers almost all disciplinary
areas of Computer Science and Engineering. They include: Software
Engineering, Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence, Programming
Languages, Databases, Internet Technologies, Data Mining, Computer Networks,
High Performance Computing, Computer Architecture, Parallel and Distributed
Systems, Theory and Algorithms, System Software and several other areas.
But that is just the tip of
the iceberg; the Department has been the launching pad for a large number of
other computing enterprises which is the center for the study of computing.
My view of them is in other computing organizations.
The Department has large and
active Research Programs in all areas of Computer Science and Computer
Engineering. Our Research Programs are well-funded and growing and we are
recruiting new faculty. These are exciting times in the Computer Science and
We welcome you to our
Departmental Website. This website is intended to serve several different
constituencies of the Department which include our
faculty. We hope you will find this
website very useful. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email

In closing, I remember my
favourite lines from the Upanishads:
"You are what your deep
driving desire is
As is your desire, so is your will
As is your will, so is your act
As is your act, so is your destiny"
