Seat/Quota distribution for M.Sc Program
Credit System:The curriculum is organized in the framework of the credit system. Each course has a certain number of credits, which indicates the weightage. The number of credits depends on the contact hours for course. Normally a course is designed for 4 hours of lecture per week. The tutorial on each course may include laboratory, simulation works and assignment works as determined by the department.
Instructional Methods:The courses comprise of Lecturer, Tutorials, Laboratory works, and seminars, short projects as applicable. The concerned faculty would give the assignments. Reference materials including international publications, journals, handbooks, web sites, related software etc will be used extensively. The course contents are designed in such a way that the students should use considerable self-learning efforts. Innovative approaches and ideas would be encouraged.
Registration:Every student must register and seriously attempt to complete all the courses including thesis work within two years. The program comprises of 20 credits of core courses, 12 credits of electives courses, 4 credits of open elective, 4 credits for project work and 20 credits of thesis. The topics of the thesis to be offered by the different faculty members will be floated in the beginning of the second semester. The students will be asked to give their preferences of the topics offered. Alternatively, the students will be asked to give their own topics of interest. The MSICE program committee, considering the preference given by the students and the availability of faculty supervisors, will then assign the students the topics. This will be completed by the end of second semester at the latest.
Qualifying Criteria:To qualify for the Master of Science in Information and Communications Engineering, a student must satisfactorily complete a program of course work of at least 60 credits including an individual thesis of 20 credits.
To be eligible for the admission to the Master of Science (M.Sc) in Information & Communication Engineering Program, a candidate must have passed BE (Electronics/Electrical/Computer) or Equivalent.
Course Contents:The course consists primarily of two types of courses; the core courses deal with the fundamental and application in different course areas whereas the elective courses deal with very specific details of the course. A student is allowed to select any relevant four courses from among the elective courses besides five core courses.
