What is Computer Science Engineering

Computer science engineering includes the study of design, computational processes and programming languages. Students get to learn technical know-how about how to develop a variety of hardwares and softwares and gain knowledge about communications systems and other similar devices. Usually students and potential candidates tend to confuse computer science engineering and computer science as one subject. There is a large difference between both subjects. Computer science is a study focussed on troubleshooting issues on a software level. This study deals with programming languages and operating systems and learning the technical aspects related to softwares and its advancements. On the other hand, computer engineering is a study focussed on hardware and software interface development as well as its related problems.

Highlights of Computer Science Engineering

Computer science encopmpases the studty of various topuics such as languages, programming, algorithms, program designing and software designing. The field of computer science has its roots embedded in subjects such as maths, electrical engineering and linguistics. A computer science engineer works to design and develop software applications, networks as well as manage hardware if necessary. They often write codes for softwares, electrical devices such as printers, modems and scanners to name a few. They also write codes for operating systems such as Windows and Linux. 

Computer engineering is a branch of study where individuals design and develop various technological devices and computer systems. They basically research, design & develop processors, motherboards, circuit boards, memory devices, routers and test computer systems. A computer engineer works to integrate the developed components into network systems and computers as per the respective requirement. Usually, computer engineers work on another important aspect called software development. They work on a variety of other aspects such as CAD (computer assisted design), CAM (computer assisted manufacturing), world wide web, voice over internet protocol, networking and communications. This also includes compiling and debugging in programming languages, anti-virus, encryption, firewalls and user authentication. 

There are a variety of courses from a professional point of view which are becoming increasingly popular when it comes to computer science.

  • Mobile & Applications development

  • JAVA & its framework

  • Data science

  • CISCO Technologies

  • Cloud Computing

  • Web designing

HOW CAN I GET COMPUTER SCIENCE ENGINEERING IN NIT IN ONE YEAR? DONT PROVIDE LINK TO CHECK PLEASE MENTIONED THOSE POINTS THANK YOU

Nikki Nair 2nd Apr, 2020

Hello Aspirant

If you are targeting for NIT and for CSE its a sure shot deal that you should have good rank and good marks in JEE MAIN paper.

Well the only thing that will fetch you an NIT is lot of hardwork

As you mentioned that you have a year left.Let us consider that you are done with 50% of your syllabus.

As you will also be giving your 12th this year the main thing you need to focus on is NOTES

Start making notes!

Read all NCERT books throughly

Make a full proof Timetable(Divide time to each subject)

Complete Chemistry inorganic part

Divide your list from easy chap to tough chapters(EASY CHAP THAT CAN FETCH YOU MORE MARKS)

Practice daily

By heart all the formula in Mathematics(maths will fetch you marks)

Physics is tough but first complete easy chapters

Keep all the formula and organic chemistry equation ready and stick it to the wall.Glance through it daily.You will slowly start remembering it

Solve Plethora of Mock test

I know its difficult ,but only hardwork and smartwork will fetch you NIT

Regards!
