About the Course

The confluence of academia and industries is inevitable in the growing field of Computer Science. HITS has come out with a novel solution of running B.Tech courses aligned with industrial standards along with the industrial leader IBM.

Cyber Security specialization will provide a deeply engaging learning experience with interesting real-world applications. Cyber Security and Forensics gives a better understanding of protecting your data from cyber-attacks with proper risk management and mitigation. The B.Tech Program with specialization on Cyber Security and Forensics will have professional core courses from Computer Science and Engineering and electives courses in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics, which are exclusively designed by IBM. Upon successful completion of the course, every student will receive a digital badge from IBM along with the degree from HITS, which is an added credential and gives them an edge over other students.



The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Computer Science and Engineering are listed below: The graduate after 3-5 years of program completion will

  • PEO 1: Excel in his/her professional career and/or pursue higher education including research by applying the knowledge of Computer Science and Engineering.
  • PEO 2: Demonstrate the technical skills to analyze and design appropriate solutions for problems with social consciousness and ethical values.
  • PEO 3: Adapt themselves to organizational needs by understanding the dynamically changing technologies.


(To be achieved by the student after every semester/year/and at the time of graduation) At the end of this program, graduates will be able to

  • PO 1: Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • PO 2: Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • PO 3: Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • PO 4: Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • PO 5: Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • PO 6: The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
