Computer Science and Engineering Association (2016-17)
Introduction to Computer Hardware
The Association of Computer Science and Engineering kick started its activities for the academic year 2016-’17 with an informal session for the students of the department, by the Association Secretary, for familiarising with computer hardware and the interior of the laptops. The session was organised to provide a general awareness to the students on the basics of the design and architecture of the computer.
The session was conducted on 5th September 2016 at 4:30pm in room number 219 and turned out to be lively and interactive sessions with the active participation of the students, who also initiated discussions on topic. At the end of the session, students raised their opinions regarding the topics they want to have discussions on, in the future activities.
INTRODUCTION TO HTML&CSS
On 22nd September 2016, the Computer Science Association conducted a session on ‘Introduction to HTML and CSS’ at 4:30pm in room number 219. The session was handled by the few students of the department who have got hands-on experience on the topic. The motive was to introduce the students to the field of web development and to motivate them to work in the area. The initial session rendered the basics which are necessary for the beginners. Considering the interest shown by the participants, a second session was conducted.
On 23rd September 2016, the session was continued, taking the students gradually to the next step in web development. Later on, students discussed in groups and they triggered various discussions complementing the session. It was very clear that the students were going to take greater leaps and were left free to explore the area. The association planned that further sessions would be conducted, after the students have done a bit of exploration themselves.
CodePad – Online Coding Competition
To introduce the students to the world of competitive programming, the Association of Computer Science conducted an Online Coding Competition for the students of the department, with the platform provided by CodeChef. The competition was conducted to induce a sense of responsibility in the students towards their academics and to make them understand the importance of being an ‘employable’ engineer at the end of their B.Tech curriculum.
The Competition was held from 10/10/16 to 16/10/16 through the platform provided by CodeChef. The questions were chosen from the miscellaneous programming questions, which are usually posed to the students, in the placement drives during the final year. There was active participation from the students of the department and Parth Suresh from the third semester grabbed the first prize in the competition. The association has analysed the performance of the students and has planned to take steps to improve the technical quality of the students.
Coding Competition for Third years
The Association of Computer Science and Engineering, believes that the B.Tech curriculum should be utilized well, in forming an employable batch of engineers each year. This process is a gradual one and has to be done with great care. Taking into account the placement activities, the final year students shared their experiences with the pre-final year students, giving them tips on how to begin with their preparation and the need to start preparing in the pre-final year.
The Association conducted a coding competition, on 17-10-2016, exclusively for the pre-final year students for giving them a chance for self-assessment. The students were given guidance by the final years and the faculty in helping them to start off with their preparations. The association has planned to conduct similar programmes in the future to maintain the momentum of the students’ preparations.
