Professor (Dr.) Kalyani Mali

Head of the Department Professor

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering was established in 1992. It started functioning in the
Department of Physics, University of Kalyani, with only one programme: Postgraduate Diploma in Computer
Application (PGDCA) with a student strength of fifteen. Subsequently, at the end of 2002, the Department
started functioning in its new building. The two AICTE-approved existing courses, Master in Computer
Application (MCA) and Master of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering (M.Tech.(CSE)) were
introduced in 2001 and 2003 respectively. Moreover, the Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and
Engineering (B.Tech.(CSE)) course has been introduced in 2022 as per the approval of AICTE. Besides this, the
department currently supervises two M.Sc. programmes in Computer Science and Data Science, which have
been introduced in the academic session 2019-2020. The department also offers Ph.D. degrees in various
areas of Computer Science and Engineering. The department employs 07 regular and a few contractual faculty
members, along with other staff members to run its courses smoothly. Healthy teacher-student relationships
and well-equipped laboratories have paved the way for growth in the IT sector. The department recognizes
the importance of Information Technology in the modern world and is dedicated to making all possible efforts
to place its students in the long run. Moreover, the faculty members of the department are highly involved in
cutting-edge research in different trending areas of computer science and related topics and have published
more than 600 articles in reputed peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
