Established in the year 1982, Computer Science and Engineering department in NITR continues to remain the most preferred branch among the undergraduates. The department envisions preparing its students for securing opportunities at industrial and research profiles through study and implementation of the fundamental principles of the theory, abstraction, and software design along with presenting the ethical and social issues associated with computer science. Through these years, the department has witnessed immense growths in leaps and bounds.

After the dual degree courses were discontinued from the academic year 2017-18, currently, the department offers B.Tech (4 years) and M.Tech courses, with an intake of 90 and 60 students per batch in B.Tech and M.Tech courses respectively. Mr. Ashok Kumar Turuk is serving as the head of the Department. The department is blessed with 23 dedicated professors with specializations in various fields of Computer Science.

The admission in the B.Tech program is conducted by Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) and the ranks in JEE- Mains are considered for the same. The opening and Closing Ranks for admission in the year 2018 were as follows:

Computer Science is the systematic study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and of practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems. On the other hand, Computer Engineering has its roots in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. It deals with the study of the interaction of various devices among themselves and with the computer.

 The branch is well equipped with modern laboratories like software engineering, advanced database, information security and data communication, image processing and clustered computing, visual surveillance laboratory and hardware laboratory. There are many notable research works taken up by the department. For instance, “Deep learning applications for computer vision task” and "Optimal controller placement in software-defined wide area network".

In terms of placement, the branch never disappoints; the students of the department gets On-Campus placement offers from companies like Amazon, Adobe, Microsoft, Myntra Designs, Math Works, SAP Labs, ServiceNow, PwC Advisory etc.

As a developing field, the branch provides excellent job and research opportunities currently and will continue to elevate the benchmarks in the future.
