IGNOU MSCMACS Admission Procedure
Admission to the programme is based on merit. Fee has to be paid after admission to the programmes and only registration fee of Rs. 400/- has to be paid with application form.
The core courses are designed to provide mathematical knowledge and techniques, necessary for use in many application areas. These core courses which you will be studying during the first two semesters of your studies, will prepare you well to study the courses offered during the third and the fourth semesters.
The elective courses will expose you to the applications of mathematics in the area of computer sciences.
Project work is compulsory for all of you. It aims to provide hands on work experience in some Industry/ Organizations/R&D establishment/Institution. The project guide will give you all the details related to the project work.
Most of the courses of the programme have computer practical component. Practicals session will be held at the programme centres. Attending and completing the practical sessions is compulsory for each student. The total number of practical sessions per semester ranges from 11 to 36. The sessions are spread over the entire
semester. In order to be eligible for attending the Term-end-Examination of the practicals in a course, the student has to complete at least 70% of the practical sessions prescribed for the course.
Scheme of Study
In order to enable you to complete your M.Sc (MACS) programme within the minimum period of two years, you will have to take 16 credits worth of courses in each of the four semesters. Registration for the programme is semester-wise. After the first/second/third semester, irrespective of whether you pass or not in all the courses of a semester, you have to register for the second/ third/fourth-semester courses respectively, by submitting the Course Registration Form with the requisite programme fee.
