Five Year Integrated M.Sc. Programmes

The Department of Computing offers only three unique Five- Year Integrated MSc Programmes with different specializations

M.Sc.(Software Systems)

·  Specialization in design and development of software automation across domains

M.Sc. (Data Science)

·  Specialization in Data Analytics for insights into data that leads to designing and developing business intelligence systems

M.Sc. (Decision and Computing Sciences)

·  Specialization in Decision Science and Information Technology for optimal decision making

About the Programmes

The salient feature of these programmes are the specially designed curriculum in which theory is perfectly blended with extensive laboratory practice and sandwiched with real time industry / research projects through two internships, each of six months duration in software industries / research organizations in India / foreign universities.


The curriculum includes a number of electives from specialized streams like Software Engineering, Data Analytics and Management. Students of any of the M. Sc. Programmes have the option to select electives across the streams to specialize in technology or consultancy or decision making or gain  holistic entrepreneurial knowledge.


The teaching learning process includes exposing the students through project based learning right from the beginning thereby enabling the students to gain exposure to solve real-time problems at the earliest.


With academic autonomy, the department regularly updates its student focused curriculum and syllabi. This enables them to solve the problems in any domain and enhance their  technical skills to adapt to any evolving computing methodologies. These talented students are much sought after by  multinational software giants like IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, Global scholar, Amazon, AMD etc, research laboratories and foreign universities.
