Anna University has granted it the status of Permanent affiliation and recognized it as a Research Center. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering desires to become a prominent center of excellence for producing competent IT professionals for providing software and software-enabled solutions.
Each individual is born with his own skill set, and over time he acquires skills that make him stand out of the crowd. The CSE Department has launched a club called INNOCOM, a way to incubate and express talent. INNOCOM is a club to encourage every student of the department towards the path of entrepreneurship, to become a breadwinner, and help them create a stand-alone future. The club increases the standard of CSEians and builds more achievers and trendsetters.
