Project Ideas for CSE / IT Students


I have been to many colleges all over India for campus recruitment and appalled at the hit ratio. I have seen frustration, many times  on the faces of my Project Leaders / Managers when fresh graduates become part of their team. The gap between industry requirements and academic input imparted to students does not seem to be decreasing for various reasons.

Information technology (IT) Industry looks primarily  for strong basic concepts, initiative, analytical mind, ability to work in group and good communication skills in CSE /IT graduates from academic institutes. A good project work, an essential part of curriculum,  provides opportunity to develop and demonstrate the desired skills.  However, students because of improper and insufficient guidance end up taking projects that do not add much in their development. How to change it? This is one of the ways I am trying to make my small contribution and in the process  bridging gap between industry and academic.

This site Project Ideas for CSE / IT Students has been created to:

  • Provide ideas for projects of different types in areas that CSE / IT  students may be somewhat familiar with. This site should help in better  understanding of requirements of computerized systems in those areas. It should help a student in proper  design and development of  an IT application;
  • Help students visualize similarities in different computerized applications and how various applications fit in a larger application system;
  • Provide directions for making projects close to real life application and thereby generate awareness of scope and complexity of real-life  IT applications;
  • Suggest many useful enhancements thereby making a project suitable for group working and working at a senior college level;
  • lastly, suggest topics for investigations which a student may like to pursue and demonstrate his interest and initiative to influence decision for enrollment in MS / PhD programs.

Site Organization

Commonality among different IT applications of a particular class has been extracted and explained in subsequent pages. Additional information to explain some uniqueness has been covered in posts under the same class.  Posts are categorized & tagged. Readers are advised to look at archives also. Senior College students must read material on’ making system ready for real life.

New – Addl Project Ideas

I have added a page on project ideas which exploit newer developments in IT technology. I suspect many students may not have necessary exposure in their academic program to work on these projects. But, I guess some students/ faculty keen to experiment in new technology will do necessary self-study and attempt these projects. As of now I cannot find a good way to categorize except by technology. Hopefully it will evolve.

Request to Students: Primary purpose of site is to help students and not “spoon feed” them. Hence no detail design and code will be hosted. However,  I will be happy to provide further explanation. Questions can be sent as Post /Comments on this site or raised by an e-mail  to me. There is also possibility of getting a surprise gift. Please see page on Project Ideas.

Request to Teachers: Hopefully explanation given are sufficient to help in guiding students in detail design and working out logic of programs. This site should also help in citing examples in courses on File Organization / Data Structures, Programming, AI/expert System, Graphics and Systems Analysis & Design.

I urge all readers to  share feedback for improvement. Also suggest additional project ideas and  interesting extensions that you may like to be discussed and covered for larger benefit of student community.

Hello sir,
This attempt is really helpful to students who are undecided about projects initially. A website like this can be very handy in context of project selection and applications.

Dear Mehta Sir,

The pros and benefits of this blog is a huge list. I really do not want to write them all. All I want to say is – This blog really is a gold for IT/ BE students. Because, the project ideas are close to how real world projects are developed.
On the other hand – please do include complete code of at least one or two projects. This will help average students.
Please let me know if I can contribute some thing to this blog.

Thank you for this value.
