Department of Computer Science & Engineering

About Department

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering is functioning at Govt. College of Engineering Kannur since its inception in 2001. Presently the department offers only UG programme. The UG programme is named B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering. The programme was initially having AICTE sanctioned intake of 30 students. The AICTE sanctioned intake was increased to 60 students in 2011. The department currently runs four batches of UG programme per year. Students are well placed through campus placement and few are also selected for higher studies in reputed institutions. The sanctioned posts of faculty members is 10 and that for support staff is 5. The sanctioned faculty post pattern is Professor (1 No), Associate Professor (2 Nos), and Assistant Professor (7 Nos).
