Computer Science

Computer Science Department was the first to start when BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus was first established in the year 2000. It started with a faculty strength of 2 and student strength of 40
Since then we have grown to 10 full time faculties and student strength of 350.
We work with a motivation and dedication to impart the best knowledge to the highly talented students admitted to our department. Our department has faculty experienced in various fields of Computer Science. Many of them are qualified from reputed institutions like IISC, IIT and BITS Pilani.
The department of Computer Science at BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus aims at producing world class Computer Engineers. A wide range of courses are offered to students to help them understand the various intricacies involved in computing. The courses are designed in a way to invoke students’ ability to think originally and creatively. The faculty members of the CS department are trained to produce Computer Engineers with the ability to design and develop systems involving the integration of software and hardware devices. The department is equipped with modern Computer Labs, with well trained lab assistants, to enable students better understand the theory lecture sessions and to give them an exposure to practical problem solving.
We are in the continual pursuit of improvising the curriculum in line with the recent advancements so as to enable our students to hit the ground running, as soon as they graduate.
Our students have excelled in various programming contests, and academic competitions conducted by various International Institutes (both Gulf Region and in India). CS dept has various clubs like Dot net, Linux and many others to facilitate the students gain knowledge in areas outside the curriculum. Our CS dept facilitates ACM chapter to improve the research activities of the students. 
We are proud to say that our students are placed in top multinational companies and top universities abroad.

Instrumentation Engineering

The department of Electronics & Instrumentation engineering started in the year 2001 and the first batch of students graduated in the year 2005. The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty. The instrumentation laboratory is of international standards with different process control work benches for measurement and control of flow, pressure, level etc. 
The primary focus of instrumentation engineering is the development and implementation of electrical and electronic instruments for the purpose of measuring, monitoring, and recording physical phenomena. Among many other types of instruments, instrumentation engineers develop seismic sensors, blood glucose sensors, fire detectors and a host of sensors for many applications. Major users of these instruments include industries that rely on automated processes, such as chemical and manufacturing plants. A very large field of work is also offered in biomedical engineering, and in metrology.
The scope of instrumentation engineering is vast, and is fast growing, in part due to the increased use of automatic control in manufacturing and process plants. Growth is also tied to the development of more accurate and more robust sensors, which allow us to detect phenomena of interest (such as the presence of minute levels of toxins in food) with much higher precision than what we could do a generation ago.
The Electronics and Instrumentation curriculum includes courses on the design of analog and digital electronic devices used for measurement and control of parameters such as flow, pressure, temperature, and level, and the calibration of such instruments. Students learn to program microcontrollers, and to design and implement communication networks composed of sensors, actuators, and programmable logic controllers (PLC). Since instrumentation engineering is closely related to control engineering courses on signals, systems, and control theory are also included.

Changes in economy towards science and technology require new profile of knowledge and skills to be incorporated into academic criteria. Globally, biotechnology represents a major driver for a high technology professional carrier. The demands from the biotechnology work force sector for development of knowledge and competencies were a major driving force for starting the B.E. (Hons.) Biotechnology program at BITS in the Middle East. The Department of Biotechnology established in the year 2007, offers B.E. (Hons.) Biotechnology & M.E. Biotechnology. It houses a total of six state of the art laboratories which are active in teaching and research. The main objectives of the department are 
  • Generating laboratory facilities for taking up R&D projects from various sponsoring agencies /industries
  • Strengthening the University linkage through R&D projects 
  • Conduct Hands on training for the faculty members and students in the field of Biotechnology.
  • Strengthening the B.E (Hons) Biotechnology and ME biotechnology program 
The department of biotechnology has collaboration with Department of Pathology, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, Bethesda, Maryland, USA for exchange of faculty and students, visit of experts and scientists between both the organizations and transfer of students to higher degree program. The department also collaborates with International centre for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) for engaging in R&D activities such as biosaline agriculture and biofertilizer development.  As a part of MoU there is a provision for Internship (PS) for students through short term and long term projects at both the institutes.
