Master of Science in Computer Science is being offered by the Department of Computer Science. The program is designed to produce academicians and professionals of high quality. The designed course work provides depth and breath-based knowledge of core computer science areas (as identified by the HEC), moreover specialization courses enable students to develop advanced expertise in their chosen area of specialization. Currently, following specializations are being offered:
The program is designed to meet the growing need for IT experts in the rapidly evolving 21st century economy. The mission is to provide post-graduates with a strong software engineering, computer networks and databases expertise. The study program enables students to capitalize on the increasing career opportunities in the information technology sector, to expand the limits of their knowledge, and to pursue further doctoral studies.
MS in Computer Science (MSCS) Program aims to:
Enlighten students with advanced theoretical and practical computer science knowledge.
Impart research capabilities in the students.
Enable students to add fruitful research contribution in the area of their specialization.

Courses of Study
MSCS Study Scheme w.e.f. Fall 2019
Infotics Education revised the study scheme for two-year MS in Computer Science (MSCS) degree program as per the guidelines of HEC curriculum. Following are the revisions carried out in the study scheme:
The MSCS program is offered with thesis only now.
The number of core/requisite courses has been increased to four. Now the core/requisite courses are CS701 – Theory of Computation, CS702 – Advanced Algorithms Analysis and Design, CS703 – Operating Systems, and CS704 – Advanced Computer Architecture-II.
A three credit hour “Research Methodology” course is added in the study scheme. A student must pass this course in order to be eligible to enrol thesis.
The minimum credit hours for degree completion are increased to 33 (due to the inclusion of “Research Methodology” course).
A student can enrol MS level course(s) only if he/she has already passed its respective pre-requisite course(s). A student may attempt to improve a 'C' or a 'D' grade in a course at most once.
The courses may be revised time to time as a result of continuous review to bring them at par with courses from being taught at top-class foreign universities. While reviewing the courses, needs of local industry and job market are also given full consideration.
The University reserves the right to change fee structure from time to time.
