Department of Software Engineering aspires to be an internationally top-ranking center of excellence that serves society through continual innovation in education, research, creativity, and entrepreneurship.
Software Engineering Program Mission
To produce graduates with a broader knowledge and skills in the field of Software Engineering who can impact society in a transformative way – regionally, nationally, and globally.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of Software Engineering Program
Graduates will apply theoretical and practical knowledge of Software Engineering for analysis and design of quality software systems of varying complexities. Abilities and skills of analytical thinking, logic formulation, algorithm construction, complex designing, appropriate validation and economic maintenance will be inculcated. They will also be prepared to successfully pursue higher studies.
Graduates will be sensitive to environmental, professional, civic and societal contexts, committed to ethical action, and engaged in life-long learning to remain effective members of their communities. They will be equipped with the skills and attitudes to be responsible, effective and thoughtful contributors to society.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Graduates will apply their abilities, talents, and insights creatively and productively in fields and professions beyond those explicitly represented in, or anticipated by, the Software Engineering curriculum. Graduates will make their mark on the world in many ways: they will start companies, become professors, invent technologies, and make creative contributions in every profession, science, and art.
Graduates will take initiative, and demonstrate resourcefulness. Equipped with interpersonal, leadership and communication skills, they will collaborate in multidisciplinary teams and will be leaders in their organizations, their profession and in society.
