I found that writing software was much more difficult than anything else I had done in my life.
- Donald E. Knuth

Almost every aspect of our daily lives depends on software. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people are called software-intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems, business applications with an emphasis on web services etc. These systems have massive numbers of nodes (ensembles) which operate in open and non-deterministic environments. Failures of these systems can have dramatic consequences for our economy and well-being. While many of the problems posed by traditional software are difficult but manageable, some of the challenges posed by these complex systems are beyond the current state of the art of software engineering. The International Symposium on Ensemble Networks and Software Engineering (SENSE-2015) is intended to serve as a forum for researchers, practitioners, and developers to exchange ideas and results for the advancement of ensemble networks and software engineering.

SENSE’15 is co-affiliated with Fourth International Conference on Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2015), August 10-13, 2015, Kochi, India. ICACCI-2015 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The Conference is technically supported by IEEE SMCS Technical Committee on Soft Computing and IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Internet.

The Centre of Sustainable Water Technology and Management (CSWTM) at the College is developed as a centre of excellence to solve water and water related problems as an Indo-German Project with the cooperation and technology support from the University of Applied Sciences, Weingarten, Germany (UAS). Regular students and faculty exchange programmes are undertaken between the College and the German University. Prof (Dr.) Johannes Fritsch from UAS is in-charge of the Project and is an adjunct Professor at SSET. German Water Partership(GWP) is a consortium of 350 German companies working on various aspects of water technologies. The water related projects of SCMS under CSWTM caught the attention of several companies who are the members of GWP. They have decided to collaborate with CSWTM in order to fine tune the outstanding German technology on water to be ideally standardized for Indian local conditions for solving the water related problems in the country. CSWTM is envisaged to be a Center of Excellence in water in the coming years.

Department of Computer Science and Enginnering at SSET has always given paramount importance to research. Research areas include Desktop and Mobile Malware Detection, Image Security, Information and Network Security, Security in Mobile Ad- Hoc Networks, Big Data Analytics, Cloud Computing and Natural Language Processing. The Mechatronics Research is an area gaining wide application in industry. A section of the Department is researching into the different aspects of application of electronics in the automotives and other equipments which uses electronics to improve their performance and save cost. The team at SCMS has developed a system by which the efficiency of auto engines can be improved and it is reaching its final stages for making a public announcement.

Recently SSET entered into an alliance with People’s Friendship University of Russia for academic cooperation in research and also for student and faculty exchange. Through this alliance the enormous technology job opportunities in Russia is opened to students of SSET. SSET is the only engineering college in India to have such an arrangement with a top Russian University.
