M.Sc. Computer Science

The M.Sc. Computer Science programme, introduced in the year 2004, aims to develop core competence in Computer Science and prepare the students to take up a career in the highly competitive IT industry as well as carry out research and development. The M.Sc. Computer Science programme is a 2-year full-time course consisting of 4 semesters. The objective of the programme is to develop human resources with core competence in various thrust areas of Computer Science with sound knowledge of theory and hands on practical skills. Taking into account the Computer Science curriculum that the students have undertaken at he undergraduate level, it covers up the advanced courses in Computer Science. The programme includes a minor project in the 3rd semester and a major project in the 4th semester. In that, the course allows the students to specialize in the areas of their interests.

To supplement the core, elective subjects are offered to provide a better understanding of the technology behind the applications of computing.

Along with the theory courses, assignments are given to hone the students 'analytical and problem solving skills. The assignments provide an opportunity for students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in various courses as they synthesize a solution to a significant, realistic and practical problem.

Projects / Presentations:
While conventional methodologies in terms of classroom learning are important, students are provided with considerable exposure to real life situations by way of case studies and projects. Students work in teams to analyze the problem, plan software development and implement a solution. Students work closely with faculty members and periodically make presentations about the technical work and process issues.

Major Project:
To prepare the students for technical positions in the software industry and to give the necessary hands-on practical experience, the curriculum includes a minor project in 3rd semester and a major project in 4th semester.
