    Thank You

    • I guess with your experience Northeastern’s Information Systems is perfect for you. I am currently graduating from that course and it contains everything you have done and Java in depth. Kindly look into it

  4. Hi Shrinivas,
    I’m opting for CS but i’m unsure about specialization right now.
    A little off topic question.
    I want to keep it open. What should i write in SOP for that?
    Often people put their area of interest.
    I’m a 4 yrs experienced person in java and related technologies. But dont want to restrict it to java only.

    • You have to write and emphasize on the reason because of which you are a great student to be selected.
      – Your background
      – Your passion and interests
      – Your experience
      – Why you wish to join MS

      If you focus on these things in your SOP it would be great

  5. Hi Admin… I have been operating the computer from a very tender age n’ I’ve got great typing and drawing skills… I further studies Computer Science Education at the University but there was little or nothing I learned from it… I however feel unsatisfied because I haven’t gotten what specialization to consider. If I’m to choose an M.Sc course in computer science, which do you think would be most applicable to my person. I have great flare for computers but dont wish to meddle with programming/coding. Any suggestions would be highly regarded even as to choice of schools to apply for M.SC as well. Thanks for your reply.
