JNTU-HYDERABAD : B.Tech any branch and M.Sc. courses eligibility criteria for M.Tech. (Computer Science) for the academic year 2012-13
With reference to subject cited above, it is to inform that if all the branches of B.Tech are given eligibility for M.Tech Computer Science, then the course level of M.Tech has to be downgraded to basic levels only and also there is a comment received from the NAAC and NBA committee who have already visited certain departments of JNTU on various inspections intimated that there is no difference between the B.Tech Computer Science and M.Tech Computer Science as its almost equivalent. Master level course syllabus cannot be offered if admission into the M.Tech Computer Science is given to all the branches of B.Tech and to compete with the advance course of Computer Science one should have the basic knowledge on computer science subjects.
Previously B.Tech. Computer Science were not offered by all the affiliated colleges and the outcome was very rare, hence all other branches of B.Tech and some M.Sc. courses were given eligibility to join in the M.Tech Computer Science course and as of now all the affiliated colleges are offering B.Tech (CS & IT) and also MCA courses and there are number of Computer Science graduates coming out. Hence the eligibility criteria for M.Tech Computer Science has to be restricted for only B.Tech (CS/IT/) & MCA graduates only.
Further, the same eligibility criteria’s are maintained by the IIT’s and NIT’s all over India and also as per the AICTE norms the candidate who has completed his Undergraduate and Post Graduation in Computer Science is only eligible for the Assistant Professor in Computer Science, hence for getting admission in the M.Tech Computer Science should be a B.Tech. in Computer Science. Hence admission into the M.Tech Computer Science course cannot be offered to any other branches other than B.Tech (CS/IT) and MCA students for the academic year 2012-13 so as to maintain the standards of Masters level syllabus for these streams
