The department has maintained an excellent reputation for high
quality degree programs. Entry into all degree programs is highly
competitive. All students are offered scholarships during their
period of study, subject to satisfactory performance.

proven research track record to apply for
post-doctoral fellowships/research associate positions.
CSA offers two research programs, M.Sc. (Engg.) and Ph.D., that train
a student to become a perceptive and sound researcher. Students are
expected to conduct independent research under the supervision of a
faculty member, prepare a research proposal, and write a dissertation
describing their original work. The anticipated time to earn the Ph.D.
and M.Sc. (Engg.) degrees are 4 and 2 years, respectively. Before
completion of their programs, students are expected to present and
publish their research results at premier publication fora.
The two course-based masters programs currently offered by
the department are structured to provide a solid foundation in core
areas of computer science through course work while allowing enough
flexibility for the student to pursue an area of specialization in their
research projects. M.E. (Computer Science and Engineering) is the
flagship program of CSA that attracts the best students in the country.
The M.E. (Systems Science and Automation) program, jointly offered with
the Electrical Engineering Department is a unique program that blends
computer science and systems science towards problem solving.
