The School has well equipped laboratories with a wide range of computing facilities including smart class rooms, video conferencing facility and virtual class. The postgraduate programmes of the School focus on strengthening the students knowledge in almost all areas of Computer Science and on exposing them to the issues involved in the development of computer systems. Curriculum revision is done regularly to keep the programmes up to date.
Blended Learning with smart class room, e-learning ,e-seminars, virtual computing and simulation tools.
The students have access to the common facilities provided by the University like High Performance Computing, University Library, Health Center, Canteens, Hostels etc.
The School plans and ensures a conducive physical ambience for the faculty, researchers and students in terms of adequate research laboratories, computing facilities and allied services. The School has an efficient policy for the creation and enhancement of infrastructure in order to promote a good teaching-learning environment. Well equipped labs, Research workstations, broadband internet facility through Campus Area Network, Wi-fi enabled classrooms, latest software, Smart class room for conducting lectures, Video conferencing facilities for real time interaction with experts/ scientists from national/international organizations, School level digital repository of workshops, seminars, PhD open defences and other e-learning contents for use as a research resource and a cloud computing environment running Vmware software are some of the major facilities available in the School.
Under the DST-PURSE programme, School of Computer Sciences has setup a specialized High Performance Computing (HPC) environment running on one Master Node server (Dell PowerEdge R 740) , two compute node servers (Dell PowerEdge R 640) and one GPU node server (Dell PowerEdge R 740). Software enabling the parallel computing environment is Intel Parallel Studio XE. Mellanox SX6012 network switch acts as the backbone to interconnect all the servers and clients in the HPC environment. All the equipments are housed in a rack with a cooling unit. Users can access the environment through client computers. The post graduate and research students from science departments whose work requires highly intensive computations utilize this environment.
The School is an active partner in conducting and participating e-seminars, e-workshops, e-conferences etc. using the A-View e-learning environment. The School is also planning to be part of the National Knowledge Network connectivity. The School promotes the use of Open Source tools and software. The School is co-ordinating the Spoken Tutorial Project of IIT Bombay, implemented in the University.

The Library of the school has a vision to inspire technological exploration, inculcate research aspiration and backup the academic community to attain the goals having been set. The library uses various tools for providing information to the user community. We stand out with good collection of academic as well as research-oriented books of high reference value. To cater to the increasing amount of information needs of the students, research scholars in particular, we have made available online journals from IEEE with high impact factor. Apart from the IEEE database, we have access to e-shodhsindhu a Consortium for Higher Education Electronic Resources provides e-resources to Universities, Colleges and Centrally Funded Technical Institutions in India, being executed by INFLIBNET Centre. We have dedicated machines with high speed internet connection for searching e-resources and OPAC. The resources of our library have been made available online by being a part of the union catalogue in collaboration with the university central library.
The library plays a vital role in imparting knowledge to the students as well as the research community by disseminating information with having maintained a good collection of most sought-after books and e-journals. The library holds more than 4000 research oriented reference materials including books, journals of major international publishers, theses, project reports and e-resources. For ready reference, the abstracts of all the theses have been kept as a bound volume. Books were well classified with Dewey Decimal Classification System.
The library uses Web based Online Public Access Catalogue powered by KOHA to retrieve information about the available resources. Towards getting to complete automation, all the books in the library have been barcoded. Internet facility is provided to the users with a speed of 1GBps for accessing e-contents. Mendeley, a reference manager and academic social network, is being used as content management system for e-learning.
The School has an air-conditioned Seminar hall, with a seating capacity of about 100 persons.The seminar hall is well equipped. The Seminar Hall is an ideal venue for conducting Workshops, Seminars and Departmental activities as it has a special ambience to suit every event. The Seminar hall also holds a smart board through which we have made education interactive and effective to make learning easy. The faculties also find it convenient to communicate the subject in a better way.
The School has a conference hall with a seating capacity of 20 persons and is equipped with computer, projector and speaker facilities
