Research Programs
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.

Course Programs
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.
