The Department of Computer Engineering of GMIT offers Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program in Computer Engineering with intake of 60 students.
Computer Engineering embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. Computer engineering is solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering and it applies these theories and principles to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes.
There are two specialities in computer engineering:
1. Computer Software Engineering
Computer software engineers develop, design, and test software. Some software engineers design, construct, and maintain computer programs for companies. Some set up networks such as "intranets" for companies. Others make or install new software or upgrade computer systems. Computer software engineers can also work in application design. This involves designing or coding new programs and applications to meet the needs of a business or individual. Computer software engineers can also work as freelancers and sell their software products/applications to an enterprise/individual and start business with very low capital investment.
2. Computer Hardware Engineering
Most computer hardware engineers research, develop, design, and test various computer equipment. This can range from circuit boards and microprocessors to routers. Some update existing computer equipment to be more efficient and work with newer software. Most computer hardware engineers work in research laboratories and high-tech manufacturing firms. Some also work for the Indian government.
Department of Computer Engineering provides laboratory which has at par hardware and software configuration. The combination of up-to-date curriculum and the committed, dedicated and the competent faculty members has helped our students excel in computer field.
