The Computer Science and Engineering department was started in the year 2001 with an intake of 60 B.Tech. students. The current B.Tech. intake is 300. The department also offers M.Tech. in CSE (with an intake of 36). The department was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in the year 2007.

The faculty in the department consists of seven Professors, ten Associate Professors, out of which nine are pursuing Ph.D. in their respective areas from JNTU, OU and UoH, and twenty six Assistant Professors, out of which one is pursuing Ph.D. The department has expertise in the areas of Cloud Computing, Secure Computing, Software Engineering, Image Processing, Data Mining, Mobile Computing, and Parallel Programming.

Professor K.V. Chalapathi Rao has guided 8 Ph.Ds and is currently supervising 6 more.

Major achievements by  students of this department include the award of 3 Gold Medals by JNTU(H) to Mr. Harsh H. Shah, during 2008-09 (for outstanding academic performance among all affiliated colleges).

The department has set up 2 research labs for encouraging research activity. The department is equipped with licensed software like Rational Rose, the latest Microsoft software through an Microsoft Imagine subscription, as well as a Digital Library. Along with Windows and Linux, various advanced operating systems (Windows Server, MacOS, VMWare) are available in the labs. Labs are also equipped with the latest IBM/HP/Apple servers. There is a separate Apple Lab with iMac and Mac Mini systems. Students also have access to devices like tablets (iOS, Android) for doing projects.
