The importance of introducing computer Engineering as a department was felt back in 90’s.To serve the growing need of computer specialized manpower, the sanction for starting Computer department was accorded to Govt. Boys Polytechnic Jammu in year 1992 with the initial intake of 10 students annually. The new department started functioning and admitted the first batch of Diploma in computer Engineering in the year 1993.

The department admits about 30 students every year in the diploma Engineering Program. The curriculum of the Department is revised under the World Bank scheme, which is industry oriented & practice based .Emphasis of the course is on computer science, s/w development, hardware design-management & networking. Specialized knowledge on analysis & design of information is imparted to the students through the audio-video aids (multimedia projectors). Industrial training plays a very important role in meeting challenges of today’s industry, so students of department are given chance to go for the industrial training for short periods. The Department also impart lectures to the students of other disciplines of the college. Various workshops on current topic are organized in the department from time to time. To make full utilization of the course by the students various training /seminars based on the entrepreneurship are organized by the Department Currently, the department has faculty of seven members whose interests spans among various areas of the Computer Science.

Utilizing the grants provided & grooming the student’s inlue of latest technology, the students are exposed to latest software & hardware technologies in well-equipped Computer labs established in the department.

Career Opportunities in Computer Engineering - Computer hardware engineers are expected to have favorable job opportunities. Employment of computer hardware engineers is projected to increase faster than the average for all occupations through 2010, reflecting rapid employment growth in the computer and office equipment industry, which employs the greatest number of computer engineers. Consulting opportunities for computer hardware engineers should grow as businesses need help managing, upgrading and customizing increasingly complex systems. Growth in embedded systems, a technology that uses computers to control other devices such as appliances or cell phones, also will increase the demand for computer hardware engineers.

Computer engineers are also responsible for designing, developing, implementing and testing computer-based hardware and software, including the components that are found inside computer equipment, as well as the actual devices that contain the computers and the software that runs on those machines. They may also design networks that connect computer systems, and work on integrating software programs with computer hardware.
