The dream of degree students entering the portals of Birla Institute of Technology & Science will be fulfilled, with its Hyderabad campus soon starting a Master of Engineering programme for B.Sc. graduates.

BITS Hyderabad Director V.S. Rao said ME in Information Security, under computer sciences stream, would be offered to B.Sc. graduates.

This would be the only course open for science graduates, exclusively on the Hyderabad campus. All other programmes were either for students who passed Intermediate, or B.Tech or M. Tech graduates.

The course, with an intake of 40 students, can be completed within 36 months. Classes will be held even during the summer vacation. Students will get paid internship in the final year.

Prof. Rao said the Hyderabad campus would double its numbers by 2020.
