“I learned that computer science is not just about syntax and coding .we can make a difference in people’s lives by developing applications”


Computer Science is the study of computers, including their design (architecture) and their uses for computations, data processing, and systems control. It includes engineering activities such as the designing of computers and of the hardware and software. It also encompasses theoretical, mathematical activities, such as the design and analysis of algorithms.

Computers have in fact, permeated every aspect of our lives and have indisputably become a necessity in modern times, without which modern life is simply unimaginable. Recognizing this indispensable role of computers, the Department of Computer Science at SL BAWA DAV COLLEGE BATALA was established in 1995. Since then the department is engaged in high quality Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate teachings in Computer Science. The department has the ability to not just dream bigger but also to make these dreams a reality. The department also invites you to experience and effervescent academic atmosphere, congenial to industry-relevant studies, research and development innovations. Prof. Sanjeev Kaushal is the Head of the Computer Science Department.
