Somaiya Post-Graduate Examination in Engineering (SPG-E) will be conducted Online. Last date of application is August 15, 2020

Bachelor of Technology

Computer Engineering | B.Tech (Comp)

Computer engineers are involved in the design of Computer-based systems to address highly specialized and specific application needs. The Department of Computer Engineering facilitates students to apply principles of Computer technology across a wide variety of fields for adapting to ever changing multidisciplinary converging technologies.

The Department houses classrooms and laboratories with modern infrastructure to facilitate their learning. The Teaching-Learning-Evaluation paradigm is a mix of traditional as well as active learning pedagogy and use of contemporary Information and communications technology (ICT) tools. The academic ambience encourages research, development and innovation activities. Leadership and teamwork are induced for imbibing the ethical and professional attitude to enrich society. Computer engineers work in most industries, including the Computer, Aerospace, Telecommunications, Power production, Manufacturing, Defence services and Electronics industries.

Key Information

Pedagogy

The Teaching-Learning-Evaluation (TLE) paradigm is a mix of traditional as well as active learning pedagogy and use of contemporary ICT (Information and communications technology) tools. The TLE process is facilitated by faculty members with use of active learning strategies and ICT like DIY (Do-it-Yourself), Think Pair Share, Google Classroom, LMS – Moodle etc. The MOOCs (massive open online course) courses are used for blended learning of the students. The projects are assigned as per students’ choice mapped with knowledge / thrust areas of Computer Engineering. Evaluation is done by a variety of tools including Open book tests, MCQs (multiple choice questions), Study of research papers, Internal Assessment tools etc. Mini-Projects are offered to encourage project based learning among students. Various virtual labs viz. Virtual Labs of IITs, VMWARE HOL (Hand-on-Lab), Quiklabs are used to make learning interesting for students.
