A. Admission Requirements:
Individuals who hold a Bachelor’s degree in any academic discipline from a recognized university having CGPA not less than 2.0 will be considered for admission into the Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering program. Students who have weak under graduate grades or have not come from CS/CSI/CSE/EEE/Applied Physics background will be required to take a number of prerequisite courses (list enclosed) as decided by the department of Computer Science and Engineering. The applicant’s undergraduate grade point average (GPA), GRE score and work experience will be considered in the admission process. A personal interview will be encouraged and may be required. Upon acceptance, students will receive a copy of their planned academic program. Students are encouraged to meet periodically with the program director to discuss academic progress, career placement and special needs.
B. Degree Requirements
A total of minimum 36 credit hours of graduate course work with a minimum GPA of 2.0 are required to earn the M.Sc. in CSE degree. Students may belong to either thesis or non-thesis group. Thesis group students should take 18 credit hours course work and 18 credit hours thesis. Non-thesis group students should take 30 credit hours course work and 6 credit hours project. At least 39 contact hours constitute a 3 credit hour course. In addition to class work, students have to engage themselves intensively in course based laboratory works. Taking at least four or more courses from a particular area will constitute a major in that area. The courses are distributed among the following majors: Software Engineering, Multimedia, Electronic Commerce, Intelligent Computing, Embedded Systems and Communication Engineering. Students who have weak under graduate grades or have not come from CS/CSE/EEE/Applied Physics background will be required to take a number of prerequisite courses (list enclosed) as decided by the department of Computer Science and Engineering.
