I am happy to announce that I have joined BITS pilani to pursue my higher studies. Starting this 19th, my weekends would be productively invested towards achieving my postgraduatation. I have been approved to take admission into MS programme in Software Engineering from this premiere institute.

The duration of this course is 2 years (4 semesters) and it is being offered in collaboration with my employer Yahoo!. This is one more benefit that yahoo is offering to its employees starting this year. I am preveliged to be in the very first batch of such a collaborative program. Classes will be conducted in the office premises during weekends. It may be a bit difficult to manage work, studies and personal life. Thanks to my family members who have pledged support to realize my dream of getting masters from a renowed institution. Wish me all the best :)

    Hi Mohan,
    It would be highly appreciated that if you can clarify the following points in regards M tech (QM) under WLIP:
    On line class timing & flexibility
    Certificate attestation; can we do self attestation
    Mentor selection; can I select outside my organisation
    How difficult is the course to complete

      Hi Arvind,

      I have done my BS and MS from BITS, Pilani WILP. I was also college topper in Diploma in those old days (1995 batch). In my opinion you should do part time (evening college) recognized BE/BTech in regular university. BITS B.Tech will not be helpful in doing ME/Mtech from other universities as it is not recognized by AICTE.

      Hi Arvind,
      If you can for full time then it would be a great option, otherwise part time option wont be bad either. I don’t think you would have placements for part time. BITS degree is recognized world wide. I have done my masters from BITS pilani part time. If you want to do PHD after that you shouldn’t have any problem though . At least in New Zealand they don’t make a fuss about it ( I am currently living here since last 5 years and have applied for PHD here and got approved but i decided not to pursue ). At the end of day degree don’t matter much its what can you do for a company with your knowledge that matters :) Good luck

      Hi Krish,
      I think you need to find a mentor from your company /or best is talk to your HR they would be able to assist you. Back in days (2009) when i joined this course all i needed was mentor from company (Senior than you).

    I am confused between MS in Software engineering vs software systems. Which one should I go for? Any suggestions?

    • Mohan July 22, 2014, 7:08 pm

      Hi Kavya, this depends on what your focus areas are! Please go through the subjects you can choose in each of the course and decide what inspires your professional goal.

    Hi Mohan

    I wish to join BITS Pilani this year for HD(ME/M.tech).I heard from a few people that it not a worth doing HD in BITS as it has no scope for Phd(If at all one has to pursue),is this true.??

    Also i am from mechanical stream it would be of a great help if you know any of the peer in this stream who is studying and connect me to him..


    • Mohan July 9, 2014, 7:57 pm

      Hi Jayanth, sorry for the delayed response. Have you made up your mind yet on whether to pursue with the course or not with BITS? What is HD in your query, i didn’t get that.
