M.Sc Computer Science
M.Sc. Computer Science is a two-year post-graduate degree programme in Computer Science and is one of the most sought after graduation in the field of computers science /application (BCA /B.SC.IT/ B.SC.ITM/ B.SC.IST/ B.SC CS / EQV)
Apart from MCA and MTech in CS/IT. these courses are mostly the same curriculum in different flavours and have the same levels of importance.
However, pursuing MSc Computer Science is always an edge apart higher than the rest. What makes it a hot pursuit for students are:
Intensive exposure to advanced topics:
It offers an intensive, high-end exposure to topics which are exclusively focussed on advanced modules on Computers and allied sciences. In contrast, students enrolled in MCA have to undergo management modules too. Therefore, students enrolled in the MSc programme have a better understanding of the core and the advanced topics in a more intensive and dedicated manner.
Duration of the course and entrance:
MSc Computer Science is a 2-year programme whereas MCA is a three-year full-time programme. As a result, MSc. CS saves one year for the students providing with same level of expertise. Also, admission to MCA or MTech in premier colleges would require high scores in national level entrance tests like GATE, NIMCET and so on.
On the other hand, admission to MSc Computer Science is based primarily on the expertise and performance in the graduation level programmes such as BSc and BCA which makes the programme more benchmarked.
Also, MTech in CS can be pursued only after MCA or BTech and therefore it is more time efficient for pursuing MSc in Computer Science.
