M.Tech. Computer and Information Science

The Department of Computer Science offers two M.Tech. Programmes approved by the All India Council for Technical Education. The M.Tech. in Computer & information Science is intended to develop Human Resources for System Integration, Data Base Design & Administration, Information Technology Enabled Services, etc. It is a cross migratory programme where any engineering graduate can enroll, with limited entry to post graduates in Science.

  • B.Tech or equivalent degree or AMIE/AMIETE in the branch of Computer Science or Information Technology or Electronics & Communication, or MCA, with a first class (60% marks) applicable to all the above, from any recognized University of Institution.

  • A valid GATE score in the subject 'Computer Science & Information Technology'.

M.Tech. Software Engineering

The M.Tech in Software Engineering is intended to train Computer Engineers to become Software Engineers and professionals, expected to lead software design and development teams, with good proficiency in testing, verification and validation. Software functionality as well as methodology is given adequate importance in the course content.

  • B.Tech or equivalent degree or AMIE/AMIETE in the branch of Computer Science or Information Technology or Electronics & Communication, or MCA, with a first class (60% marks) applicable to all the above, from any recognized University of Institution.

  • A valid GATE score in the subject Computer Science & Information Technology’.


Five seats each of the M.Tech Computer and Information Science and M.Tech Software Engineering programs are reserved respectively for candidates sponsored by the Department of Technical Education and research organizations of the central / state Govts. or Computer Industry. The sponsored candidates must have been in employment with their sponsor for at least three years, working in an area related to computers at the time of submitting the application. Applicants under this category are not required to have a GATE score.

One of the five seats in M.Tech Software Engineering is reserved exclusively for a DRDO candidate and this candidate is exempted from DAT, provided he / she is otherwise qualified.

M.Tech Computer Science with Specialization in Embedded Systems

The M.Tech in Computer Science with Specialization in Embedded Systems, is designed to gain specialized knowledge related to the design and development of embedded systems. The Program is targeted to working professionals interested in gaining expertise in Embedded systems that these days become ever more intelligent and distributed, as also more complex and interdependent.

  • First Class B.Tech degree in Computer Science & Engineering / Electronics Engg. / Information Technology / Electrical Engg. or equivalent branches or M.C.A with 60% marks or equivalent CGPA

  • Minimum of 1 year experience in Industry of repute or a University / Institution recognized by appropriate statutory bodies

M.Tech Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science and Artificial Intelligence) [Part-Time]

This programme is specifically designed and offered in response to the rapidly developing field of data science and AI that are currently gaining unprecedented traction in the industry as well as in the job market worldwide. As such, there will be rich opportunities for specially skilled graduating
students to work across multiple domains of the digital economy and participate in enhancing India’s global competitiveness. The programme hence aims to produce the next generation of highly skilled post graduates that are required to continue propel the high-value economy growth of our country. This programme strikes a balance between Computer Science, Statistics and Mathematical Sciences, which enables it to provide a more comprehensive training in terms of the computing aspects of data science. It is also system-and-product driven in that it covers the essentials in software and product development, and it provides students with a large amount of practical trainings.

The programme is structured to equip students with the following:
1. To impart principled understanding of data Science field
2. To understand methods to extract non-obvious and useful patterns from large data sets
3. To acquire skill sets required for a data scientist
4. To build machine learning models for challenging problems
