First thing’s first… Arguably we are living in the most connected society ever! Go ahead and try to google a thing or two what you are curious about right now! Maybe a terminology that’s in your head, a concept you’re not clear about, or LITERALLY ANYTHING that fascinates you! You will get the answers.

There are some things that you have to know like you can not get the toothpaste back to the tube once it’s out… ahem anyway, How many things do you know as a Computer Engineer student?
Most of the engineers always have this fear of missing out on some crucial information. And it’s very common!

So before it’s too late to know, allow us to provide you with some knowledge and wisdom about CE.

Here are the basics, and take our word for it you MUST know it!

1. The most important thing, learn the difference between computer science and computer engineering. You must know which stream you belong to… not all the students are “Rancho” from ‘3 Idiots’

2. Psss psss.... Dude do you know a little bit of illegal stuff?
There are Right things and Wrong things in life, in between these two there is a thing called ‘fine to do things’ like Rooting your phone for example. You must know formatting computers, laptops & mobile phones. Also, you have to be the one who can easily install an OS and know how to upgrade the system.

3. The basic understanding of a computer and it’s components. It is very simple but most of the students don’t pay much attention to it. You must know about the processor and its technology since these days, the computing industry is massively dominated by mobile technology. Latest Mobile phones have faster processors than a low price range laptop from 3 years ago, that too with extended RAM.

4. Let’s talk about some concepts and techniques.
Please go ahead and Check out this blog post by Steve Yegge (have worked in Amazon, now at Google)
  • Basic programming (including recursion, file I/O, formatted output, loops, etc).
  • Object-oriented design (including design patterns etc). You should be able to produce sensible OO designs as well as understanding the concepts.
  • Scripting and regexes.
  • Data structures — lists, sets, hashtables, trees, graphs, and so on — as well as Big O notation and algorithmic complexity.
  • Bits, bytes and binary numbers — how numbers are represented within the computer, and how to manipulate them.

5. You need to be aware of the latest techniques and hacks going on the mysterious and outstanding thing called the “Internet”
And to help you with that we have selected some websites and applications. Here is the list…

6. Video lessons and Youtube Channels.
  • The New Boston a YouTube channel for tutorials on almost everything which is related to the computer, do check out some videos
  • Gate Lectures by Ravindrababu Ravula You can get the solution of any technical subjects here. Some of the videos are paid but there are many other videos that can help you during your university exam.
  • And a recommendation, that is very popular already, Technical Guruji a channel that gives away vital information on technology, in Hindi. Videos on this channel are super simple to watch and understand!

7. The most required skills in your life, Soft Skills. Try developing a vigilant set of skills in your student life to reap the benefits later. As a computer engineer, you must know how to code but this soft skill adds up in your profile and makes a huge impact in your annual package. It’s feasible for any student to pick up a side course go ahead take it on, select any Soft Skill course.

At AVCOE we want our students to grow beyond academics and regular curriculum. With over three decades of expertise in the Department of computer education we are exponentially thriving for our students’ academic betterment.

Department has a tie-up with NVIDIA and has setup NVIDIA GPU Teaching Centre housing four workstations & IoT based NVIDIA Jetson embedded board which gives exposure to students on parallel and concurrent programming.

Also the department has tie up with IIT Powai for AAKASH R&D Project. The department has tie up with MiTu Skillologies, Nashik for Big Data Analytics Centre of Excellence to provide students with big data analytics platform. IRT Incubation Centre, Microsoft Student Partner Program, IBM Academic Initiative and NPTEL Local Centre are other initiatives in the department which has been proved as an extra advantage to the department. Department has also tie up with ESDS Software private Ltd. Nashik for Cloud Computing – Centre of Excellence for the exposure of student on Cloud platform.
