Overview

Overview of Computer Engineering

Computer Engineers contribute enormously to the progress of modern human life. It is computer Engineers who enhance the efficiency of power distribution networks, build the next-generation stock market platform, design robots with artificial intelligence, build scalable data warehouses that powers search engines and allow a grandfather to video-chat with his grandkids over Skype.

Overview of Information Technology (IT) Engineering

IT Engineers have changed forever the landscape of communications (personal & enterprise), media & entertainment. IT Engineers enable a James Cameron to make a Titanic or Avatar or a Mark Zuckerberg to make a Facebook. Behind every successful game – from Angry Birds to Farmville to the Playstation, lies an IT engineering. It is due to the efficiency of the software program written by ingenious IT engineers that our banking system can handle millions of transactions per hour or a mega e-governance project like UID (Aadhar) can come to life.
