This facility at the School of Computing has been constantly upgraded to meet the academic and research needs of the entire campus. M/s Tata communications Lab for Cyber Security, Microsoft Technical Services Lab for Cloud, Tata Realty-Data Science Lab, VLSI Lab, Embedded systems Lab, Microprocessor Lab, NAMASTE Lab and recognitions like Nvidia – CUDA Centre of Excellence makes the facility a world class infrastructure paving way for students and faculty members of SASTRA Deemed University to excel in their respective domains.


To ensure that all students have access to computers and up to date software packages the University has implemented the following:


Gigabit LAN and a fully WiFi enabled campus (Hostels and classrooms) gives 24 X 7 access to all the IT resources of the University


CISH that hosts the licence servers of a wide variety of software and the HPC Cluster (32 TF) is accessible from the user devices any time


Each School has a separate DreamSpark Premium Subscription (in addition to the campus agreement), which gives unlimited access to the Microsoft products for enhancing the teaching/ learning experience. Students, faculty & Lab machines get genuine Microsoft software and OS updates through these subscriptions


The Lab machines, faculty & student Laptops across the campus can be Installed with Matlab (latest edition with updates) which comes through the Campus agreement with Matlab

Access to Google Classroom (as a part of Google Suite Subscription), helps the students get engaged with their Professors after the class hours, making learning a fun.
