Established in 1998, Narasaraopeta Engineering College (NEC) embodies the motto of providing a world-class educational structure with a vision of creating a path towards excellence. Spread across in a beautiful 40-acre of land, NEC’s campus is located in a town called Narasaraopeta 50 km away from Guntur city. The college has received the approval by AICTE – New Delhi, the highest sanctioning authority of Government of India. It also has a permanent affiliation with JNTUK and is twice accredited by NBA, an autonomous body of AICTE. These recognitions have been backed up by the academic performances of students of NEC in recent years, especially in the field of Computer Science. NEC is now regarded as one of the top engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh for Computer Science and Engineering (CSE).
The Department of CSE, like the institution, came into existence in 1998 with an intake of 40 students. The rapid pace of development within the department allowed the institution to increase the intake to 240 students by 2012. The department’s overall success in the recent past has been massively supplemented by its present-day infrastructure. The CSE branch is equipped with hi-tech computer labs that can accommodate all the students at once. The computers in these labs are powered with latest processors, high-speed internet, and authentic software.
The functioning of the department is exceptionally structured with a highly diverse and experienced faculty. The students are constantly exposed to the latest technologies and innovations that are revolutionizing the technological landscape globally. Narasaraopeta Engineering College believes that practical exposure is the key to success in science. Hence, the students are being provided with the hands-on experience in NEC’s laboratories through innovative projects from the industry. The department also organises research establishments, workshops, seminars, etc. on regular basis. This exposure helps students to come up with out of the box ideas, which can later turn into innovations.
The department’s technological and educational expertise is also augmented by the department library. This library’s huge collection books, journals, thesis, CDs, DVDs, etc. are available to all the students. John C Maxwell once said that “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.” It totally applies to the HoD of CSE department, Dr. S N Tirumala Rao. His guidance has always been instrumental for all the students. With 13 years of experience in teaching and 8 years in the industry, his value-centered leadership is aligned with the objectives of NEC.
The CSE department of NEC aims at improving the academic proficiency of students by setting up a systematic, honest, and consistent evaluation system. Campus placements are the prime focus for the institution. In recent years, top Multi-National companies (MNCs) like TCS and Tech Mahindra have recruited many candidates from NEC. The institution has an ample amount of opportunities in store for candidates, who are willing to pursue Computer Science Engineering in the coming years.
