Indian Institute of Science, the only institution in India to be ranked within the top 20 Universities of the world, confers Master degree in various disciplines of Engineering to about 450 students every year, in addition to the Doctoral degree to around 350 scholars in Science and Engineering Departments. IISc continues to attract the cream of young graduates from various states of India and shapes these potential leaders to face the ever increasing challenges of industries and R&D Centres. The M.E (Master of Engineering) degree programme (spread over 24 months), the M.B.A and M. Des. (24 months programme) and M. Sc. (Engg.) degree through initial course work followed by research (completed in about 24-30 months) are equally popular. Flexibility in selecting the appropriate courses and the availability of abundant computing and other state-of-the-art facilities in all the departments help our graduating students to be on par with (and most often superior to) their counterparts from other Institutions.
