The School of Computer & Systems Sciences was established way back in 1975. It is one of the foremost institutions to start teaching and research programmes in the broad areas of computer science. The School has established itself as one of the most prestigious institutions in the area of computer education in the country. The School offers programmes of instruction and research leading to degree of MCA, M.Tech.(M.Phil.) and Ph.D. It attracts best of the students from all over the country. Every year around ten thousand students including applicants from the neighbouring SAARC countries, appear for the MCA and M.Tech. entrance examination. The popularity of the courses offered can be judged from the excellent (100%) placement of successful students in the best of the companies in the field of Computer Science and Information Technology. The graduates from the School have been placed in companies such as IBM, CSC, TCS, Flextronics, Siemens, HP, Parot Systems, CSG, Accenture, Cadence, Genpact, etc. The School has also trained students from foreign universities in the field of Computer Science.
The School continues to be at the forefront of offering interdisciplinary courses - a goal in JNU's charter. The School has the following specialized laboratories where M.Tech./M.Phil., Ph.D. students are actively engaged in research: Artificial Intelligence & Software Engineering, Data Communication and Networks, Microprocessor and Operating Systems, Multimedia & Modelling, Natural Language Processing, Parallel Processing and Distributed Computing, Systems Software.
THRUST AREAS: Computer Graphics, Databases, Data Mining, Data Warehousing, Knowledge Engineering, Mobile Networks, Modelling and Simulation, Natural Language Processing, Optimization Theory, Parallel and Distributed Computing.
(A) PROGRAMMES OF STUDY
(i) Direct Admission to Ph.D. Programme
Course Work - The selected candidates are required to take a minimum of six courses (including the seminar course of 3 credits) within first two consecutive semesters.
