M.Sc (Computer Science), Osmania University

Hello Friends,
This article is about the syllabus of M.Sc (cs). M.Sc in Osmania University is a very good choice. Because the course is very effective and it covers all necessary subjects. Only B.Sc with Mathematics or Computer Science candidate eligible for entrance test. It is a two year course i.e., 4 semesters. I had tried many times to search the syllabus for this course on Internet. But I did not find any information. Actually, before taking admission, I want to check the syllabus. However, I did not find any resource or information about the syllabus. I think it is important for some students who are planning to take admission in M.Sc (cs).
Here is the complete Syllabus of all semesters.
