M.Sc in Computational Science (2 years)
The Computational Science is an interdisciplinary subject which integrates different branches of sciences and technology using mathematics as a key tool of integration. Along with computer and software technology, the science of computation is increasingly seen as playing a pivotal role across all scientific disciplines. M.Sc in Computational Science programme is carefully designed to cater the needs of industry and research organizations, which deals with implementation of new mathematical techniques, algorithms, and methodologies for solving problems that ranges from pure science to applied areas like drug design, finance, manufacturing design and High Performance Computing.
A degree in computational science provides a great deal of career options in Scientific Organizations or IT industry. Course Objective are tuned to train and educate students in scientific computing and interdisciplinary programs and, to apply the power of high performance computing capabilities to various disciplines for studying, modeling, visualizing and forecasting properties of systems under investigation in order to manage or improve its properties.
The Master’s programme in Computational Science is open to students having Bachelor's Degree in Science/Engineering/Technology with Mathematics as subjects of study, with a score of 60 % marks or above or CGPA of 6.5 or above in 10 points scale in the qualifying examination SC/ST candidates are eligible for admission, if they have minimum pass marks in the qualifying examination. Students who are in final semester / year and appearing for the exams shortly can also apply.
Career Prospects for Computational Scientists:
India is poised for a massive growth in the scientific R&D sector. The Indian information technology (IT) industry has played a key role in putting India on the global map. Indian IT-BPO sector grew by 12 per cent in FY 2009 to reach US$ 71.7 billion in aggregate revenue. According to a study by Springboard Research, the Indian IT services market is estimated to remain the fastest growing in the Asia-Pacific region with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.6 per cent. As per a report prepared by McKinsey for NASSCOM, the exports component of the Indian industry is expected to reach US$ 175 billion in revenue by 2020. Many of the new jobs, however, will be in the so called Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) and Engineering Process Outsourcing (EPO) sectors, which will need to tap manpower in high technology and science, rather than the low-end IT and BPO areas. Although recent financial crisis retarded the growth of this sector slightly, global economic recovery is underway. Availability of manpower has been identified as a significant prerequisite to make further growth to be possible in the coming years. Given this prognosis, computational scientists will be in great demand in the R&D sectors of all high-technology areas, including IT, manufacturing, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and health care.
