The department boasts state-of-the-art computer labs for learning. The Computer Labs at CIS provide facilities and cutting edge technology to assist students and faculty in achieving their academic goals. The department presently has a total of nine commissioned laboratories. The laboratories presently commissioned are:
- Computer Networks Laboratory
- Microprocessor Laboratory I
- Microprocessor Laboratory II
- Logic Design and Switching Theory Laboratory
- Computation Laboratory
- Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory
- Computer Engineering Workshop
- Parallel Processing Laboratory
- Research Laboratory
The aforementioned laboratories are equipped with the latest hardware equipment and software. These lab facilities also provide adequate opportunities to post graduate students to undertake research projects. The laboratories are fully air-conditioned and provide a serene and stimulating environment for learning.
The Computation Lab has three high-speed and high capacity servers (one IBM Server x-series 235 and two Xeon Servers). Printing facility is also provided to students. The departmental LAN is linked to the Intranet of the University via the Optical Fiber Link through KVM switch hosted in Computation Lab.
The department has maintained its own Software Library at Computation Lab, Software Library is also amongst a number of facilities offered to the students as well as to the faculty members from where students can be issued different licensed software for installation at university workstations as well as for their homes in limited circumstances. Software Library also contains lab manuals for practical of all concerned courses. The list of available softwares at the software library can also be viewed on the portal of CIS Department

Parallel Processing Laboratory
The lab is one of the new labs of CIS Department. Developed in the year 2004, it was made fully functional in the year 2005. At present we have 2 Xeon servers, one acting as oracle server and one cluster server. The lab is also equipped with Intel Core 2 extreme workstations and quad core machines which are used for high end computing and one of the workstations acting as OPNET server for the department.
The lab fulfills high performance computational needs of the department. We have a variety of hardware platforms, operating systems and other supporting software.
Lab sessions of operating systems, parallel processing and VLSI design are conducted in this lab. Moreover the lab is extensively used by final year students for their project work.
It is four nodes (PIV) Linux based Beowulf cluster, connected via 100Mbbs Star topology.
- It is Linux based and having "MPICH" as cluster management software
- User and resource administration is being done using "OpenPBS"
- Benchmark installed "NAS Parallel Benchmark"
- For single PIV computer = 130 MOP/s
- Theoretical 4 X PIV = 520 MOP/s
- Benchmarked Cluster Output = 472.29 MOP/s
Usability in various applications:
Being used to demonstrate and teach the fundamentals of parallel processing its programming.
Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory
Artificial Intelligence & Robotics lab fulfills computational needs of the department. The lab is equipped with 24 Intel machines and a variety of Robotic arms with supporting softwares.
Lab sessions of Database Management Systems (DBMS), Computer Architecture & Organization, Information Theory and AI & Robotics are conducted here. For DBMS practical we have Oracle Server installed on one machine and all other machines access it through LAN.
Moreover, The Robotics arms are also used by students in their final year projects.
Computer Networks Laboratory
Computer Networks Laboratory is one such laboratory where we not only meet all the true requirement of networking courses by hosting some real routers but with some remarkable networks simulators too. Computer Networks lab also fulfills internet needs of CIS department. University's optical fiber link is hosted (via super stack 3 COM switch) in networks lab. The lab is equipped withIntel® Core™2 Quad, Intel® Core™2 Duo, 15 Intel Pentium machines and a variety of CISCO routers along with network simulation software's.
List of routers and switches that are available for students to gain hands on experiences:
- Router CISCO 2503
- Router CISCO 2505
- Router CISCO 2500
- Router CISCO 2801
- Router Catalyst 1900 Switch
- Switch 3 Com 24 ports
Networks lab is also equipped with a variety of network cables and connectors like:
- Cable smart serial cable with V.35 DCE Connector
- Cable smart serial cable with V.35 DTE Connector
- Cable DB-60 serial cable with V.35 DCE Connector
- Cable DB-60 serial cable with V.35 DTE Connector
- CAT 5e Network cable
Lab sessions of Computer Communication Networks (CCN), Internet Computing (IC), Digital Communication Systems (DCS) and Parallel Processing (accessed through clusters) are conducted here.
In order to support all practical needs of our students we also inherit simulation software's like Packet Tracer, Boson, and Wiresharks.
Computer Networks Laboratory also provides support to students in their final year projects.
