About CSI

The seed for the Computer Society India (CSI) was first shown in the year 1965 with a handful of IT enthusiasts who were a computer user group and felt the need to organize their activities. They also wanted to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on a fast emerging sector. Today the CSI takes pride in being the largest and most professionally managed association of and for IT professionals in INDIA.

Currently having more than 500 student branches and rooted firmly at 73 different locations, CSI has plans of opening many more chapters and activity centers in smaller towns and cities of the country.

The CSI chapter of the college consist of more than 75 students including core team members. The Inauguration started with a melodious invocation song which was followed by a welcome speech by the student chair Rukshar Ahmadi who welcomed our privileged guests and addressed the gathering.

GNU/LINUX Users have formed a group called GLUG in P.E.S. College of Engineering, Mandya. The main objective of this group is to provide awareness of free software in students. Free software means software that respects user's freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, "free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of "free" as in "free speech", not as in "free beer". GLUG campaign for these freedoms because everyone deserves them. With these freedoms, the users (both individually and collectively) control the program and what it does for them. When users don't control the program, we call it a "non-free" or "proprietary" program. The non-free program controls the users, and the developer controls the program. This makes the program an instrument of unjust power. This group is strongly supported by Free Software Movement of Karnataka (FSMK) group.

GLUG, PESCE is active in conducting technical events like regular workshops, Hands-on sessions, conferences, etc. GLUG is co-ordinated by Dr. Minavathi, Professor, PESCE, Mandya.
