The Department Society
Here is where the entire department interacts casually. The Department Society organizes various social functions and other events to pep the otherwise busy lives of the students and faculty. The Society conducts creative programming contests (See below), faculty-staff-student cricket matches, freshers' welcome, farewell parties for final years, etc.
Faculty advisor: Partha Bhowmick and Animesh Mukherjee.
