Welcome !

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) was the first department in India to start Computer Science education. It started in August 1963 with an IBM 1620 system - a novelty then, even in many North American and European universities. The department runs BTech, MTech, MS and PhD programs and is engaged in cutting edge research with sponsored projects and consultancies. Many of the nation's leading experts, educationists and consultants in computer science today are the alumni of this department.

The CSE department mourns the demise of Prof. Pramod Subramanyan and offers condolences to bereaved family members, friends and colleagues of Prof. Pramod Subramanyan. Please visit the following [ link ] for some fond messages from his friends and colleagues.
