If you want to pursue higher education in computer science, this post is just for you. There are very few institutes in India that have MSc in Computer Science courses with higher demand.

NIT Trichy MSc Computer Science course is unique in its own in most of the ways. In recent years, students from MSc Computer Science, NIT Trichy have been placed in MNCs at good packages.

  M.Sc Computer Science is a full-time four-semester course spread over two years. The course provides a solid theoretical foundation through high-quality teaching complemented by extensive practical learning. 

M.Sc Computer Science programme has been offered since the academic year 2014-15. After M.Sc CS, the students can go for higher studies or a job. 

National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NITT), is an Institution of National Importance under the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.

The Institute has been imparting technical education in core branches of science and engineering, besides pushing frontier areas in research.

With a vibrant campus and best facilities, the Institute provides 10 undergraduate, 28 postgraduate and PhD programmes. NITT is no.1 among the NITs and 10th in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), MHRD, Govt. of India. Department of 

Computer Applications is one of the pioneering departments of the institution that offers three full-time post-graduate programmes Master of Computer Applications (MCA) accredited by NBA, Master of Science in Computer Science and M.Tech in Data Analytics.

Admissions to M.Sc. (Computer Science)

Students are admitted to the two-year M.Sc. (Computer Science) programme through Centralized Counselling for M.Sc. to NITs (CCMN) using the Joint Admission Test (JAM) score. 

Eligible candidates are interested to join M.Sc. (Computer science) programme at NIT-T should first register for JAM 2020 and write MS- Mathematical Statistics examination. 

Later on, the candidates should register with CCMN website at http://www.ccmn.in.

How to get into NIT Trichy MSc computer science course?

If you also want to pursue MSc from NIT Trichy, you must start preparing for the IIT JAM Mathematical Statistics subject.

One from a statistics background may think if MSc in Computer science is worthy for them.

The course is a perfect blend of computer science, statistics and data science.

Applied Statistics and Informatics (ASI) course at IIT Bombay has many computer science subjects. 

So, it’s going to be super beneficial for students from statistics backgrounds. If you ever wanted to be a data scientist, you will have to dive into the programming world.

Also, some of the students from this MSc course opt to do PhD in Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence.

I’m a statistics graduate so is it a good idea to shift to CS? I’m more interested in pursuing higher studies rather than placements. My score is 47.33 in JAM MS,general category.



Hi Diya, do you have computer science background earlier?



Yes, I had it as a subject in 10+2 and as a minor subject in college for 3 semesters.



Are engineers eligible for admission to this program?



Diya, although they don't ask for cs background but you will not face too much problem. Also placement opportunities are good too. You can do PhD in cs stream like machine learning, data science and other core topics after MSc. There is no such things as shifting to cs although at IIT bombay we are taught 2 courses of cs each semester.



Shakti, there is no any btech degree mention in the degree eligible for admission. But all msc degree is for btech students, but you can mail them on the email you will found on their official page.
