Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science & IT was established in 1999. Ruia College was among the first 8 colleges in Mumbai to start Computer Science Programme under the University of Mumbai. Subsequently, we introduced M.Sc. Computer Science and M.Sc. Information Technology in the year 2002 and 2011 respectively. Our Department facilitates academic excellence, innovations in problem-solving, research attitude and holistic development. Our Undergraduate programme in Computer Science focuses on training in a wide spectrum from core areas to emerging technologies by academic and industry experts. Our Post-graduate programmes emphasize on Research and Specialization in current trends of Computing and work experience in the industry through six months  Internship in last semester.   Department has progressed over the years in academics, placements and internships with dedicated efforts of well-qualified and experienced faculties. Our Department is proud to receive grants under the Star College Scheme from DBT, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India in 2016. These grants assisted to promote Undergraduate Research and training in current Trends and Technologies.
