With the globalization of Indian Economy, vast opportunities of growth have been thrown open for the computer software and hardware industry. Software being one of the largest growing sectors of the Indian economy, the department of Computer Science & Engineering at the Mehr Chand Polytechnic has been at the forefront of churning out Software Engineers with a high caliber of technical expertise. Besides imparting theoretical knowledge, a lot of stress is laid on hands-on training and overall development of the individual’s personality.
There are two fundamental paradigms in science and engineering developed about two decades ago – physical experimentation and mathematical analysis. Today, computer based simulation and visualization has emerged as third one. Computers are most powerful tools to access information. Department of Computer Science and Engineering in Mehr Chand polytechnic College, Jalandhar was started in 2003 with an intake of 60 students. The course curriculum is comprehensive and aims to provide sound practical knowledge and theoretical concepts. The course curricula have been designed mainly to focus on the following thrust areas :-
–   Computer Network
–   Database
–   Software System
–   Embedded System
Duration of the course is of three years and Examinations are conducted by Punjab State Board of Technical Education and Industrial training, Chandigarh.
Computer Engineering : Computer Labs
Computer Engineering Department of Mehr Chand polytechnic is well known for rigorous exposure to hand on practice to reinforce the spirit of excellence among the students and to make them successful technocrats. There are three computer labs in the department. The labs are well furnished and equipped with modern facilities like smartboards connected with internet. There  are more than 275 computers existing in the labs with the latest configuration and specifications. All labs are supported with 24 hrs. internet facility (50 Mpbs leased line).
Apart from Diploma in Computer Engineering, a special skill course of Diploma Vocational (Information Technology). “Software Development” part time is also conducted in the Polytechnic under Community College Scheme granted by M.H.R.D. Govt. of India.

To facilitate the flexible environment to students with fundamental innovation of theoretical and practical study to achieve the requirements in the industry and society. At diploma level, our vision is to prepare the students to face the challenges of life and to solve the real problems which occur in society.


To provide quality engineering that help students to enhance knowledge in their perspective fields and stimulate academic and intellectual growth of students by outstanding teaching.

Major Project work done by students of the diploma aims at developing innovative skills and hands on practice in the students; where they implement their theoretical knowledge and skills to solve the industrial problems or by undertaking a project by organization. The faculty of department identify aptitude and skill strength of students to assign various projects. The project assignment list is as follows :

Name of Projects Software Used
  College Map Locator   3D-MAX, Flash, Pagemaker, Corel Draw
  Implementation of Proxy Server   Win  and Server 2003
  Student Information System   Oracle  & V.B.
  Super Market Management System   Oracle & V.B.
  Insurance system
  Advertisement of college   3D-MAX ,Flash, Corel Draw

The criteria for accessing student performance includes planning, execution, and quality of Performance, Report writing skills and viva voice.



There is a gap between the products of Engineering Institute and requirements of industries, with the motive of reducing this colossal gap; the students have to undergo training in relevant industry. Report Writing Skills and Seminar Presentation do the evaluation of performance.

A quality placement of any institute is the caliber of student, which has correlation with efforts of the students and faculty. I feel immense proud to inform that many industries approach us for campus placements like Trident, AMP Solutions, L & T, Spice, etc .

By considering, the need of industries for soft skill & interview skills and working with this aim in mind, at computer department we lay special emphasis on the personality development. Workshops on personality development, interview skills and behaviour modification etc. are regular features at department. Our faculty and students are also involved in developing and delivering executive development programs for industries.
