The history of Department of Computer Science and Engineering was started from 1963 with establishment of Applied Mathematics in Engineering College. As the study of computer science and engineering has evolved rapidly, the appearance of DCSE has changed a lot for decades.
In 1975,the Computing & Statistics Department in the College of Natural Science was established. After two years, the Masters Course was separated into a Computer Science major and a Statistics major. In 1978, the Electronic Computing Department in the College of Engineering was established. The name was changed to "Electronic Computer Engineering Department" in 1979.
In 1980, Department of Electronic Computer Engineering started to have Graduate school. In 1989, the department changed its name again into "Department of Computer Science"
The Undergraduate and Doctoral Course of the Department of Computing & Statistics Department in the College of Natural Science was separated in 1990 and 1991 respectively into a Computer Science major and a Statistics major.
In 2000, the Computer Science major in the Computing & Statistics Department and Computer Engineering Department were merged to form the "Department of Computer Science & Engineering" in the College of Engineering.
