To supplement the core, elective subjects are offered to provide a better understanding of the technology behind the applications of computing.

The students are given a thorough exposure of the basic working of a computer through experiments conducted on various digital devices and microprocessors for underpinning their concepts.

Along with the theory courses, assignments are given to hone the students' analytical and problem solving skills. The assignments provide an opportunity for students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in various courses as they synthesize a solution to a significant, realistic and practical problem.

Projects / Presentations:
While conventional methodologies in terms of classroom learning are important, students are provided with considerable exposure to real life situations by way of case studies and projects. Students work in teams to analyze the problem, plan software development and implement a solution. Students work closely with faculty members and periodically make presentations about the technical work and process issues.

Industry Projects:
To prepare the students for technical positions in the software industry and to give the necessary hands-on practical experience, the curriculum includes 4-6 months of professional training in the industry.
