A Master of Science is a master's degree in the field of science awarded by universities in many countries, or a person holding such a degree. In contrast to the Master of Arts degree, the Master of Science degree is typically granted for studies in sciences, engineering, and medicine, and is usually for programs that are more focused on scientific and mathematical subjects; however, different universities have different conventions and may also offer the degree for fields typically considered within the humanities and social sciences. While it ultimately depends upon the specific program, earning a Master of Science degree typically includes writing a thesis.
In India, all science universities offer MSc programs. However, a few technological universities do offer MS degrees alongside the conventional MTech or ME degrees. Generally speaking, in India, post-graduate technological courses lead to MTech while engineering courses lead to ME. For example, a master's in automotive engineering would normally be an ME, while a master's in physics would be an MS or an MSc. This is in contrast with universities in UK and the USA which usually offer MS or MSc degrees for all science, technology, and engineering programs. A few top universities offer undergraduate programmes leading to a master's degree; these are known as Integrated M.Sc./ M.S. / B.S. + M.S. degrees. To pursue for M.Sc. in India, aspirants should have to clear an entrance exam like – IIT JAM (Joint Admission Test for M.Sc.) NEST (National Entrance Screening Test) JEST (Joint Entrance Screening Test).
