Overview

Computer Science Department was the first to start when BITS Pilani, Dubai campus was first established in the year 2000. It started with a faculty strength of 2 and student strength of 40
Since then we have grown to 10 full time faculties and student strength of 350.
We work with a motivation and dedication to impart the best knowledge to the highly talented students admitted to our department. Our department has faculty experienced in various fields of Computer Science. Many of them are qualified from reputed institutions like IISC, IIT and BITS Pilani.
The department of Computer Science at BITS Pilani, Dubai aims at producing world class Computer Engineers. A wide range of courses are offered to students to help them understand the various intricacies involved in computing. The courses are designed in a way to invoke students’ ability to think originally and creatively. The faculty members of the CS department are trained to produce Computer Engineers with the ability to design and develop systems involving the integration of software and hardware devices. The department is equipped with modern Computer Labs, with well trained lab assistants, to enable students better understand the theory lecture sessions and to give them an exposure to practical problem solving.
We are in the continual pursuit of improvising the curriculum in line with the recent advancements so as to enable our students to hit the ground running, as soon as they graduate.
Our students have excelled in various programming contests, and academic competitions conducted by various International Institutes (both Gulf Region and in India). CS dept has various clubs like Dot net, Linux and many others to facilitate the students gain knowledge in areas outside the curriculum. Our CS dept facilitates ACM chapter to improve the research activities of the students. 
We are proud to say that our students are placed in top multinational companies and top universities abroad.

Research

For an institute like ours imparting cutting edge technology to our students, we understand that engaging in high quality research is vital to keep up in the forefront. We emphasis on research by offering dissertation option for both undergraduates and  higher degree students in addition to practice school .Our dept has well equipped computer labs  with all the software  required to carry out advanced research. In fact we are in the process of getting  latest Microsoft software tools   including  window 7.5 mobile programming tool Mango, windows  Azure programming tool, Visual studio 2010, exchange servers, and other tools  through an academic alliance with  MSDN .In fact students from other depts. also can make use of the above  MSDN academic alliance facilities. The above tools will facilitate students  to undertake advanced research in emerging areas like  cloud computing and mobile computing. 
Research in CS department is mainly focused on areas of Web Services and Security, cloud computing, Software Engineering and Component based modeling, Computer Networks protocol verification, Web Mining and Data Mining and mobile computing. Students pursuing their Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science can work on a Thesis for a period of six months in the final year of the program. Our students and faculties from the CS Department have contributed to high quality publications in reputed international/national conferences and journals. 
Two of our faculty members Dr. Madiajagan and Dr.Sujala Shetty have earned their Doctoral degrees from BITS-Pilani by carrying out successful research using the facilities provided in our CS department. Further three of our faculties are doing active research in one of the areas mentioned earlier towards their Ph.D program.

Courses

The B.E. Computer Science  program offered is course and lab intensive and includes courses that enable students to master the fundamentals in Computer Science. Great care is taken when designing the courses. Most of the courses have both theoretical and practical sessions which aid to the better understanding of the concepts. In addition to the discipline specific courses,   we are offering electives   which will enable the students to get the expertise in relevant area of computer science. Based on the electives chosen a student   can have expertise in  specific  area of computer science like architect for building SOA applications, software architect ,Multimedia networking, Embedded controller HW and SW design.
By the time a student is ready to graduate, he/she will be fully equipped with strong fundamentals and abundant knowledge in Computer Science. The strong foundation laid in this institute is the reason for the technical excellence our alumnus is exhibiting around the globe. 
 As per the revised curriculum during the first year of the program  CS students will share  common courses with  other disciplines. From second year onwards they will be exposed to  core courses in computer science as given in the chart below.
