The computer society “Websters” was started with the aim to foster interest in the world of computers and technology. It provides a platform for like-minded brains to communicate with each other and expand their horizons. All students as well as the faculty of the Department are members of this society.
Websters has a well-structured student council who are responsible for conducting all events of the department throughout the year.
