Engineering is the application of science, hence in computer Science and Engineering ,we study the basic sciences of computer, the term Engineering is involved so that how we apply this in our respective field. Computer Science and Engineering has made advanced leaps and bounds from the early days of abacus which was early aid for mathematical computations. It's only value is that it aids the memory of human perforating the calculation.

A skilled abacus operator can work on addition and subtraction problems at the speed of a person equipped with a hand calculator (multiplication and division are slower). The abacus is often wrongly attributed to china. In fact, the oldest serving abacus was used in 300 B.C by the Babylonians. The abacus is still in use today, principally In the Far East. A modem abacus consists of rings that slide over rods but the older one dates from the time when pebbles were used for counting.

In 1642 Belasis Pascal, at the age of 19, invented the ascalineas an aid for his father who was tax collector. Pascal built 50 of his gear- driven one- function calculator (it could only add) but couldn’t sell many because of their exorbitant cost and because they really were that accurate (at that time it was not possible to fabricate gears with the required precision)

By 1822 the English mathematician Charles Babbage was proposing a steam driven calculating machine of the size of a room, which he called differential Engine. The machine would be able to computer tables of numbers, such as logarithm tables. He obtained government funding for this project due to the importance of numeric tables in ocean navigation. It was hoped that Babbage Differential Engine proved exceedingly difficult and the project soon became the most expensive government funded project up to that point in English history. Ten years later the device was still no where near completion, acrimony abounded between all involved, and funding dried up. The device was never finished, but Babbage was not deterred, and by then he was on to his next brainstorm, which he called the Analytical Engine. These were the first generation computers. When transistors were invented, the size of the computers reduced terribly from the Size of the room to a mere chip of few centimeters. Later on with advent of VLSI, the size reduction came to nearly 1 cm sq. In India after the computer revolution in 1984 by our visionary leader Late Rajiv Gandhi, India has become the superpower in IT Industry services and the world has saluted our progress.
