The Central Computing Facility (CCF) forms an important component of the Institute's infrastructure, providing a wide spectrum of services to the students as well as faculty and staff involved in research and other academic activities.
All students have various computer science papers in their courses. The CCF provides the support for them to have a hands-on feel of what they learn in the classrooms and enhance their computer skills. The CCF also supports research activities undertaken in the Institute.
The CCF comprises of seven laboratories (of the Department of CSE and the Department of IT) housing approximately 400 computers having the very latest configuration. The wide range of software includes C, C++, Java, Ora AutoCAD, MATLAB, Macromedia Flash, 3-D Studio Max, Photoshop, Prolog, LISP, Rational Rose, etc. All syste are networked and anyone occupying a terminal can access resources available on the network, barring security restrictions. Students also learn how to harness the capabilities of a network.
A special place of pride in the CCF is occupied by the PARAM- 10000 super computer, which was gifted to the Institute by C-DAC, in recognition of the Institute's commitment towards quality higher education and research. The PARAM supports a large number of projects that require parallel processing and multi processor capabilities.
