Difference between M.Sc. Computer Science and M.Tech Computer Science


M.Sc. in Computer Science and M.Tech in Computer Science are the post graduation courses offered by many universities in India. Both the courses deal with the same field i.e. Computer and related areas. Also both courses are of two years duration. Even though they handle the same theme, the nature of the courses are different in many aspects.

M.Sc. Computer Science

M.Sc. in this particular branch of study is a post graduate degree offered by many universities. This is a two year programme that can be pursued after B.Sc. Computer Science or Computer Technology. The admission procedure in universities or institutions for this course may be based on the entrance tests organized by the concerned organizations. The course is aimed on the development of software and its application. This application software is used in various fields of business, technology, education and science. The career opportunities for these graduates are also at bright side now. Those who have completed this graduation can perform in many areas like software tester, lecturers, software developers, etc.

M.Tech Computer Science

M.Tech in Computer Science is also a postgraduate degree with two years duration. Those candidates with B.Tech in Computer Science/ Information Technology/ Electronics & Communication can join this course. The MCA graduates and candidates with B.Sc. in related subjects are also eligible. The admission for this course in various universities is based on the GATE score. This is a research oriented course. The course focuses on the wide areas of computer application. It deals both with the software and hardware of the computer. The course offers wide career opportunities afterwards. Many IT firms and software companies recruit these graduates. They can also find employment in the government sector.

Key differentiators between M.Sc. Computer Science and M.Tech Computer Science

  • M.Sc. in computer Science includes the study of application software. On the other hand M.Tech in Computer Science includes the study of both software and hardware sections.
  • M.Sc. Computer Science can be pursued by only those who have completed B.Sc. in computer Science or Computer Technology. Whereas M.Tech in Computer Science can be pursued by B.Tech, MCA or B.Sc. graduates.

All though both these courses include the same theme of study i.e. computer their course nature differ in many ways.
