Research Facilities

While the major focus of research is on Information Systems, the departmental research interests span the Computer Science spectrum, as well. Recent publications cover topics in Human-Computer Interaction, Information Security, Networked Embedded Systems, Natural Language Processing, Software Engineering, VLSI, etc. Students are made to involve actively in research projects and many of them co-author technical papers and give conference presentations. The numerous refereed publications that have resulted from Masters theses, research work and projects testify the quality of research. DCS research potential is reflected in the grants from the Ministry of Human Resource Development for thrust area research.
