The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is an attractive destination for research talent.
The CSE department has a pool of motivated and committed faculty members in several research areas like networks, multimedia processing, machine learning, data analytics, theoretical computer science, compilers, distributed computing, high performance computing etc.
On the networking front, focus areas like Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi), Long-Term Evolution (LTE), Machine to machine communication (M2M), Internet of Things (IOT) and Cloud- Radio Access Network (C RAN) are pursued by the NEWS (NEtworked Wireless Systems) Lab group. Among these C-RAN is funded by the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) project. Software Defined Networking (SDN) and IPv6 are also thrust areas that are looked into.
The department has a very active Image and Video Content Analysis (IVCA) group. IVCA researchers deal in the broad areas of image and video processing, machine learning, visual recognition, biometrics, deep learning, intelligent systems, computer vision, multimedia computing. The data analytics group focuses on various aspects of big data, predictive analytics, data mining etc.
The theoretical research group has a broad range of interests in algorithms, combinatorics and complexity, with specific interests in graph theory, extremal combinatorics, algebra, parameterized algorithms and quantum computing.
The compiler research group looks into various aspects of compiler design and optimization with focus areas like polyhedral compilation, scalable compiler techniques for modern architectures like Multi-Core/GPUs etc.
The department is also involved in the DISANET (Information Network for Natural Disaster Mitigation and Recovery) project which aims to build efficient communication and search facilities in disaster-stricken areas. This project is funded by Japanese agencies JICA and JST and is a joint effort by several universities in India and Japan.
Overall, the department is well represented in various fundamental and applied research areas of computer science. The proximity to the tech-hub in Hyderabad is an added advantage since this facilitates easier interaction with industry.
