I extend you a heartiest and warm welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I would like to share with you the views expressed by our honorable former president Late Dr. APJ Kalam (first and may be the last president known as people's president) that in India, there is no dearth of resources and talent, only thing we need to change is the mindset. He has set a vision for us to see India a developed country by 2020, and the basis for his vision is the talent of our youth.
It is my firm belief that our youth has immense talent and energy, but the only concern is that they lack direction, motivation and zeal for excellence in their worthy acts. I also want to share with you my views about the (holistic) education. As I believe, holistic education has two aspects: First aspect of it is that teaches us how to make living and second aspect of it is that teaches us how to live life. I assure you that my dedicated team of faculty and technical staff will shoulder their responsibilities of imparting both aspects of education so that we can contribute our share in the development of the country by producing individuals who are globally competent in their respective disciplines and are well equipped with morals and values of joyful life (honesty, sincerity, integrity, loyalty, commitment).
To achieve our objectives, apart from providing the best know how in the field of Computer Science and Information Technology, we will have a plan to take initiatives for the overall development of personality (grooming). In this direction, we plan to take initiatives for strong character building, enhancing their communication and presentation skills, improving their logical reasoning and analytical skills, inculcating leadership qualities.
I am certain that my beloved students will make best use of all the initiatives planned and undertaken at the department level and will not only emerge as a globally competent professional but also as a nice human being. Wish you a wonderful, productive and fruitful stay here.
