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 focused on troubleshooting issues on a software level. This study deals with programming languages and operating systems and learning the technical aspects related to software and its advancements. On the other hand, computer engineering is a study focused on hardware and software interface development as well as its related problems.

Highlights of Computer Science Engineering

Computer science encompasses the study of various topics 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.

I scored 372 marks in aktu can I get cs or it branch in jss academy noida. I am a girl and uttar Pradesh domicile.

Anurag Khanna 25th Sep, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

As you have not mentioned your category so considering it as General.

According to the marks you have mentioned in the question  your rank is expected to be in the range of 7001-15000. On the basis of this rank you have some chances of getting into J.S.S. ACADEMY OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION,GAUTAM BUDDH NAGAR but not in CSE instead in IT as per previous year's cut-off. As cut-offs for this year is not declared yet so we can guide you on the basis of previous year's cut-offs which are given below :-

CSE - 1477

IT - 7171

For complete details about previous year's cut-offs refer the link given below :-

https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/upsee-cutoff

Note that the cut-offs are bound to change every year depending upon various factors, so to get an idea we can use last year's cut-offs.

However I would recommend you to use UPSEE College Predictor to predict the chances of your admission in different colleges  based upon your percentile and category :-
