Brief Profile of the Department
The state of Tripura is geographically isolated from the rest of India. Due to lack of infrastructure earlier it was difficult for the students of Tripura to pursue higher studies in engineering field(M.E/M.tech) within the state. The long standing dream of establishing Post graduate Engineering departments in Tripura University is now reality with the financial assistance received from H.R.D Ministry, New Delhi. Accordingly the M.Tech course in Computer science & engg. Under the faculty of science have been started on 19th August,2005 with due approval from AICTE.
Year of Establishment:
Head of the Department:
Prof. Sachindra Nath Karmakar
M.Tech. in Computer Science & Engg.

Brief of Biometrics Laboratory:
The Biometrics Laboratory at Tripura University (A Central University) was established on 27th Jan,2009 funded by DeitY, MCIT, Govt. of India and has a short experience in Biometrics specially Face Recognition applied to domain of information security applications. Many aspects and observations of Biometrics specially face recognition have been studied in the area of information security and multimodal identity. The main research scholars have been working on that field for the last two years and also learning and gaining experience in this domain day by day. The Laboratory is contacting various national and international laboratories who are working in the same field i.e., biometrics for secure authentication using face recognition and has conducted some visits to India’s Premier Defense Laboratory: “Thermal Imaging Laboratory” under Instrument Research & Development Establishment (IRDE), Defense Research & Development Organization (DRDO), all Defense R&D Organization, Ministry of Defense, Govt. of India, Dehradhun & the Tripura State Forensic Science Laboratory, Tripura, India etcFor details please click here
