The Computer Sciences department of the college, earlier known as the Xavier Institute of Computer Applications under the purview of the Gujarat University, was established as an independent college within the campus. However, under the purview of the autonomous status of the college, it has become a part of SXCA and functions as a department. The curriculum is designed such that the practical applications of the subject are imbibed by each student. Thus, projects, case studies, assignments are given a lot of importance as these nurture the problem solving potential in the students.
