2. Acquire skills for developing advanced products and systems in the area of industrial information and communication technology.
3. Be able to handle system-oriented analytical methods and tools.
 
Eligibility
Candidates for admission to the first year course of M.Sc.(Information Tehnology) need to possess B.Sc. degree with Mathematics as an allied subject.
 
Duration
2 Years.

Academic Progression

Students acquire in-depth technical knowledge and practical programming skills in all disciplines of Information Technology and Computer Science Engineering. Project development and ability to understand and solve industrial problems are other areas of research. Overall topper prize is bagged by the student who has the highest percentage in the department, during her period of study.
M.Sc.(IT) students undergo 4-6 weeks internship during the summer vacation of the first year and submit a report in the beginning of the third semester. The report will be evaluated in third semester and the marks are forwarded to the university along with third semester internal assessment marks. This helps the students to meet the industrial demands and face the needs of industries. They also undergo soft skill courses like ‘Language and Communication’, Spoken and Presentation Skills that paves a way for good communication which is a very important needed skill in IT industries.

Career Progression

After successful completion of their course, the students of M.Sc(IT) can pursue their higher studies in research or they can endeavour for job opportunities. They are well-equipped to work as professionals in the fields of software development, design and implementation.
