In the academic year of 1991-92, the Department of Computer Science came into existence with an extremely modest infrastructure comprising 3 computers but a great vision. Starting with the B.Sc. General in the annual mode, the academic programmes of the Department kept growing and finally in 1997, B.Sc. (Honours) in Computer Science was introduced. The Department of Computer Science at Kalindi College has kept pace with academic programmes offered by other colleges in the University. With highly qualified and experienced faculty using cutting edge technical assistance and techniques, it has emerged at the forefront among all the departments with high performing students.
In the recent years, the Department has taken the lead in the digitization of the course structure and curriculum of the College. Apart from the FDPs, the Department of Computer Science organizes Orientation Programmes, Departmental Fests, Student Awareness Programmes, Academic Conferences and many other events on a regular basis for overall development of the students. The students are also encouraged to participate in academic and non-academic inter-college and intra-college activities.
