MS in Computer Science

MS in Computer Science is an advanced degree program in the area of computer sciences which is aimed at preparing students for advanced and research oriented jobs in the area. Most of the courses in this program are designed in such a way that students are required to exhibit high level skills in research activities. A 6 CrHr thesis is a compulsory part of the MS curriculum. The program covers all major areas of computer sciences. Core courses related to Algorithms, Operating System, Theory of Programming Languages and Computer Architecture are offered by this program. Apart from core courses, students are also required to take courses from one of the specialization area of their own choice to fulfill the requirements ofMS degree at the University.
