The Computing Centre came into existence in early 1980’s, which was setup under the multilaterally funded UNDP project, and had distinction of having state of the art computing infrastructure, which not only served the purpose of the project but also introduced computing courses in the technical institutions in western region of the country. During the same period interaction with industry was initiated when transformer design division of BHEL, Bhopal got involved in development of engineering designs and drafting with the help of the department. Currently the computer centre is part of Computer Science and Engineering Education department.
