The Department of Computer Science and Engineering started M.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering in the year 2013. The program is approved by AICTE, New Delhi, and Government of Karnataka and is affiliated to Visvesvaraiah Technological University (VTU), Belgaum, Karnataka.
The objective of this discipline is to train the manpower required
- (a) To meet the industry needs.
- (b) To pursue research in specialized areas.
- (c) To meet the growing needs of engineering colleges for trained faculty in Computer Science and Engineering.
The curriculum is aimed to give theoretical and hands on in the areas of Advances in Operating Systems, Advances in DBMS, Computer Systems Performance Analysis, Formal Models in Computer Science, Advanced Algorithms, Advances in Computer Architecture, Computer Networks, and offers elective subjects like Advances in Digital Image Processing, Computer Graphics & Visualization, Topics in Artificial Intelligence, Protocols Engineering, Advances in Storage Area Networks, Advances in Compiler Design, Advances in Pattern Classification, Information Security etc.
Candidates who have acquired BE/B.Tech or equivalent degree in Computer Science / Information Science / Electronics & Communication Engineering / Telecommunication Engineering / Electrical & Electronics Engineering by securing not less than 50% marks in aggregate are eligible. However in case of candidates belonging to SC/ST/Group, the aggregate percent of marks in qualifying examination should not be less than 45%. The admissions are through central counseling on the basis of merit in PGCET or GATE. A few seats are also available under sponsored and Management quota. GATE qualified candidates are eligible for scholarship through AICTE.
This is a 2-year graduate program which involves three semesters of intense coursework and a final semester project, either in the institute or as an internship at leading software companies, making it a job-centric program.
