Hi mayank,


I have heard that universities are a better choice for pg diploma courses,as universities majorly offer masters and also employers in universities mostly prefer ms students,whereas pg diplomas,then make up the second tier......also there is some issue with visa lso....thse guys do not give visas for pursuing diploma courses in univ.also colleges are cheaper.

Right now, Thinking for Masters only .

Initially I got convinced for 1 year PG Diploma in IT after attending Education fair but now would like 2 go for 2 year Program and hardly any colleges offer 2 year of PG in IT .. The one which exist do not provide Course modules to my interest.

The only concern for me is Budget Constraint and + Non -Relevant Back ground i.e Electronics for pursuing Masters in IT on the basis of Work Ex...Not sure whether Univ would accept.

I dont have ne1..

Its actUally a mixed scenario there being CN a gud economy.

Job depends on on ur course selection, province, grades etc but I would suggest  that if u r spending money then go fo quality programs and I am not very much convinced for PG diploma courses from community colleges.

N 1 mr thing -
I am concerned dat whether univ wil acept My application as there should be relevant background to pursue even course based Masters in CS/IT... i.e. ideally graduation should be in IT related stream bt lets see as I have work ex as well...

We have to contact each univ dept to clarify and lets update each other also whatever exact reponse we get.

Also mention the CS related  subjects in ur query mail which u hv learnt In ur graduation with Electronics like microprocessor, data structure, networking etc So that they atleast give the tentative idea like whether we r good to apply n let them assess our application in detail or not otherwise its just wastage og application fees.

Experts here saying that it might be posible that they offer some Pre-master computer subjects before diving in the main program . This We need to get clarified also .
