P. K. Paul; P. S. Aithal

The world is changing and purely depends on Information rather computer. And for information affairs Computing and similar devices and technologies are very much important in current time. The domain initially started with Computer Science but these days the concept of applied science and interdisciplinary sciences lead various other domains and nomenclatures. The popular programs in the field available with BSc and MSc degree, while in India and few other countries the Computing and Information Sciences related programs also offered as Engineering Degree and thus BTech and MTech programs are also offered. In some countries and universities instead BE (Bachelor of Engineering) and ME (Master of Engineering) nomenclature are also being offered. In India the field is available with Science and Engineering in general, however here another discipline is popular with BCA and MCA tag for the candidates of diverse background. In India, Higher Educational Institutes have risen in recent past and among the universities, the categories of Private funded have been increased enormously. The worldwide changes in the academic model, platform, curricula, and eligibility criteria also affect and change the Indian Education System special reference to Private Universities. Initially, Science programs were open only for science background (except BCA and MCA) but recently non-science candidates are allowing to pursue science based courses. In case of MSc degree in the field of Computing and IT or simply Information Sciences the tradition of science backgrounds become changed; this paper in this respect explore a lot with reference to the initiatives of the private universities in India.
