DEPARTMENT OF Computer Engineering

RESEARCH

Following are the some highlights about  Reasearch  of Our Department.

At Computer Engineering department we currently have a major project running which is funded by the RPS scheme of AICTE on real-time facial expression recognition to provide a feedback for e-learning systems. The grant received for this project is Rs. 7.04 Lacs. Apart from this, we have 4 projects which have been funded by RPS scheme of Savitribai Phule Pune University, which are worth Rs. 4.65 Lacs. The department has expertise in the domain of data analytics and provide consultancy to industry. The expert faculty provided a two week long training consultancy to Zensar in the last semester worth Rs 1.75 Lacs. Other area of expertise the department has is parallel and distributed computing. The department has setup as GPU computing lab which is been funded by NVIDIA and is been awarded “GPU Nodal Center” by GPU excellence Center of IIT, Bombay. In this area last semester the consultancy provided is worth R. 55,000 for a week’s duration. We have a government funded web-technology based project going on in the department which is worth Rs. 48,000.

The department has active ACM student chapter ACM, the professional body, allows us to hold many events which provide national as well as international exposure to students and faculty. Through this body the students have started with a coding club. The main aim of this club is collaborative learning to develop analytical and programming skills.
