Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education

M.Tech – Network Engineering


To become a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Research in the field of Computer Science and Engineering.


1. To prepare the students for a prospective career in IT industry and for higher learning by imparting sound technical knowledge.

2. To carry out research in cutting edge technologies in computer engineering to meet the requirement of the industry and society.


Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established in the year 1984. In 1995 the Department became the first self-finance engineering college department in south India to offer M.E (CSE). From the year 2003 the department is offering a unique course on M.E Network Engineering. Based on the infrastructure and faculty strength the department was recognized as research centre by Anna University in 2003 to offer M.S (by Research) and PhD programs in the area of computer Science and Engineering. Recently B.Tech. Computer Science and Engineering programme is accredited by NBA under Tier 1 category(Outcome Based Education) as per Washington Accord.

The department has well equipped laboratory facilities including Web programming, Distributed Computing, Programming Languages, Software development, Open source Technologies laboratories to provide the practical training to the students. Also, the students are given the opportunity to work in the Network Technology and Network Security Laboratories attached with the TIFAC-CORE in Network Engineering.

Highly qualified and experienced faculty with specialization in Data Mining, Image Processing, Software Engineering, Natural language processing, Web Technology, Embedded systems, Evolutionary computing, Network Technology and Distributed Computing are working in the department.
The Students are given exposure to latest trends in technology including Embedded system design, Big Data Analytics, Image Processing, Extreme Programming, Software Testing, Sensor Networks, Cloud Computing, Soft Computing etc. through workshops, guest lectures and seminars. The department offers many value added educational programs and Certification programs to the students including CCNA, Security+, Sun Java, RedHat Linux Certification, etc. The department in association with the Computer Society of India and IEEE Student branch regularly organizes workshops, seminars and technical talks for the benefit of students and the staff. The department has close interaction with leading industries and educational Institutions. Many projects were carried out in association with leading software industries and research laboratories including Naturesoft, Pentasoft, Hexaware, CTS, HCL, Sathyam, IGCAR, CECRI, CLRI, Ramco Systems, Wipro, TCS, Flextronics, etc.


The department of Computer Science and Engineering has started M.E. (Network Engineering) in the year 2003. Initially, this Program was approved by AICTE and was affiliated to Anna University, Chennai. From July-2007 onwards, the course is offered under Kalasalingam University as M.Tech. (Network Engineering). The curriculum is aimed to give sound knowledge in the areas of Computer Networks, Network Programming, Network Routing, Network Management, Simulations of Computer Networks, Network Security. A host of elective subjects namely Optical Networks, Wireless Sensor Networks, Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, Cloud Computing, Enterprise Networks, Mobile computing etc enable the students to gain the knowledge in latest trends in Network technologies. Students can get the hands on training through the facilities available in Network Technology Lab, Network Security Lab, Gigabit Testing and Monitoring Lab, FLUKE NetMAT lab associated with TIFAC-CORE in Network Engineering.
