BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The department was founded in the year 1985. It started a one-year Post Graduate Diploma Course in Computer Science and Applications with thirty seats in 1986 under the headship of Prof. Malay Dutta.  At that time there were only a few institutions in the entire country offering post graduate courses in Computer Science. The objectives of the course were to produce Computer Programmers, Research Scholars, Teachers, Instructors, Computer Professionals. The course continued till 2000. Ph.D program in the department was also started immediately after its inception.


In January 2001 the department started a two-year MSc program in Computer Science after obtaining formal approval from UGC replacing the PGDCSA course, with a student intake of 15 per batch. The capacity was later on increased to 30.

In 2005 the Department started a second M.Sc program - MSc in Information Technology together with the existing MSc programme in Computer Science.

Eligibility for M.Sc.(CS/IT) Courses:

Candidates satisfying any one of the following qualifications or equivalent qualifications:

  1. B. Sc with Computer Science as the Major subject
  2. B. Sc. with Computer Science as a general subject
  3. B.C.A. / B.Sc(IT)
  4. B.E./B. Tech. (CSE/IT)
  5. B.Sc with P.G.D.C.S.A/P.G.D.C.A.

Candidates must have Mathematics (securing at least the minimum pass mark) as a subject/paper at both the TDC and 10+2 levels. The minimum percentage of marks required at the TDC level is 45% in aggregate (in the Major course only for candidates having Major in Computer Science). For candidates having P.G.D.C.S.A. (Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Science and Application), P.G.D.C.A.(Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Application) the minimum requirement is 45% in aggregate at the degree examination and P.G.D.C.S.A./P.G.D.C.A. individually.

Selection Procedure:

There will be a common admission test for all eligible candidates. The test will consist of a single paper of 100 marks, with 100 questions and all the questions are compulsory and will be of multiple choice (MCQ) type.   The course content for this paper will be the TDC general course in Computer Science of Gauhati University and will also include questions on General Awareness in the field of Computer Science. The final selection of candidates will be made on the basis of the performance in the admission test only. The test contains negative marking. ¼ th of the total mark will be deducted for each wrong answer i.e. .25 will be deducted for each wrong answer for a question with 1 mark. The test will be of 2 hour duration.
