The Computer Centre established in 1989, is one of the seven Level III centres, spread out among the various regions of India, under the ICOSER project initiated by the Technology Information Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) of the DST. High performance computing equipment has been provided with a view to promoting scientific research in this region. The Level III Centres across the country, are linked through 64 kbps data links, with connectivity to the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, which is coordinating the ICOSER project at the national level. It acts as the nerve centre for the campus wide fibre optic network, forming the central switching point in a hierarchical star structure. The design facilitates access of the unbeatable work stations and work group servers of the computer centre from the different Departments of the university. Remote login with the designated machines at the SERC IISc. is also possible, thanks to the ICOSER project. The Computer Centre, thus, offers major computational facilities for teaching and research programmes in the various Departments of the University, fosters interaction between other research institutions and industries and contributes significantly to high quality computer education in the non-conventional sector.
