M.Sc. Computer Science

Department of Computer Science

Course Overview

The M.Sc programme in Computer Science is designed to provide students an overview of computing, an understanding of the concepts, principles and skills in their application and extension, and a practical experience in applied computing. The programme emphasizes the fundamental principles underlying computing and helps develop an understanding of the computer science considerations involved in computing system design, implementation and usage.The objective of the program is to develop human resources with core competence in various upcoming 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 the undergraduate level, it covers up the advanced courses in Computer Science. The program is comprised of full time 4-semesters, including a major project in the final semester and a minor project in the third semester. In that, the course allows the students to specialize in the areas of their interests.
