The aim of the M.Sc. Scientific Computing programme at Savitribai Phule Pune University is to train computer science graduates to use computers in solving domain-specific problems computationally. Being an autonomous school, the ISSC teachers have academic flexibility so as to adapt the syllabus to the latest trends in the industry.


Traditionally pure science can be categorized into two sub-categories viz. theoretical sciences and experimental sciences. With the advent of computers, the third type of science was introduced - Scientific Computing. Scientific computing is in-between these two sub-categories. It is more than theoretical but less than an experimental science. Scientific computing is the application of computers to solve problems from domains of sciences such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, computer science and others. These problems are solved using big enough computers.

The syllabus in this M.Sc. Scientific Computing course at Savitribai Phule Pune University enables the students to do computational work in a domain of their choice. Courses on algorithms, principles of programming languages, core and advanced mathematics, statistics, parallel programming provide enough training to work on computational problems. The syllabus has core computer science subjects such as software engineering, databases, operating systems, networking which enable the students to opt for the software industry.

Career prospects

  • On completion of the programme, a student can choose from research, teaching or the software industry or can opt for higher education.
  • Up to four students are selected for a fellowship, generally during the first semester of the programme. Students availing these fellowships carry out their industrial training at the corresponding organization. These fellowships are given purely on the basis of performance at the ISSC-Entrance exam and interview conducted by the respective organization.
