We strongly believe that depending upon the interest of the student, he/she may choose to go for higher studies or if recruited by any company can choose to do research, development, design, production, application, testing or management in the concerned industry. This department has always been vibrated with teaching, research and extramural activities. The academic development of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in recent times has been like this: Faculty Development Program in Cryptography and Network Security (FDCPNS 2018) held on 12-16th March 2018, where the eminent speakers are from ISI Kolkata, NIT Durgapur, IIT Madres. Internship Opportunities 2017 for the batch of 2018 and 2019 opened up at premier institutes like IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, ISI Calcutta, JU, IIEST Shibpur etc., RTITM 2017, the first National Conference in JGEC organized by Dept. of CSE in collaboration with MAKAUT, West Bengal, where academicians and researcher came together from all over the country to publish around 50 papers, and kick started a research environment in JGEC was due to active effort by the department.

Department has faculties with diversified field of interest. Graduates of this department is not only selected by very renowned software companies but also selected by core companies. Students are participating in state and national level competition and the have bagged various positions like Smarty India Hackaton, West Bengal State Science Congress. This year and the previous year students project in Texas Instruments has been selected. One of the students project has earned funding of 1.2 lac from CSIR. Students are doing their internship in various Sites, NITs, ISI, Jadavpur University, IIEST shibpur. The Department has also been academically active in collaboration with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering as organizers. The students from the third year are given mini projects to challenge themselves and work on different areas. Placement and Internship opportunities are also created for the students.
