About the Programmes
M.Sc. Software Engineering programme was started in the year 1997 for the first
time in the country and well
received by leading software industries across the globe.
The programme has been designed to meet the challenging needs of the industry, by ensuring a good
understanding of the software design process and to develop resilient applications using
state-of-the art technologies.
The programme has been renamed as Software Systems since 2014.
M.Sc. Theoretical Computer Science is yet another innovative programme
introduced during 2007.
Any industry grows only if it has a strong R&D division.
In order that Research be fruitful, the R&D Team should have persons with strong theoretical
“It is the theory that describes what can be observed”, said Albert Einstein.
M.Sc Theoretical Computer Science has been designed to augment human resources for the R&D
divisions of software industries.
In the new era of Big Data, M.Sc Data Science was introduced during
2015 to solve the exponential growth
and curse of dimensionality in giant databases accumulated by the industries.
Companies are earnestly seeking data scientists to deal with the challenges of Big Data.
As the drive towards digital transformation continues to ceaselessly gather momentum, they also
significantly raise cybersecurity risks and threat levels.
Business is evolving itself at the pace of algorithmic speeds and digital risks are constantly
challenging even the most financially robust companies.
With the huge skills gap of cyber security workforce globally, there is an urgent need to
modernize Cybersecurity education to include vital skills.
The five year integrated M.Sc. Cyber Security programme,
the first of its kind in India aims to prepare students with the technical knowledge and skills
needed to protect and defend computer systems and networks.
The programme has a strong and wide technical base and internship programs which are the most
critical aspects to a good cybersecurity education.
An excellent academic record in Higher Secondary examination of the (10+2) curriculum prescribed
by the appropriate
authority of the Government of Tamil Nadu or any other exam recognised as equivalent with
Mathematics and Physics
as two of the subjects of study.
Shortlisted candidates with an excellent academic record in Higher Secondary examination
(based on Math and Physics HSC marks) will be called for online video call counselling
to identify the spark and the commitment of the applicant to study 5 year
integrated Masters programme (M.Sc SS/TCS/DS/CS) at PSG College of Technology.
Schedule of counselling will be intimated through applicant's registered email.
Candidates with SPARK / Research attitude are admitted to the programmes.
A call for counselling does not however confer any right of admission.
