SSN School of Advanced Software Engineering
SSN School of Advanced Software Engineering in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University offers for the first time in India: Carnegie Mellon's Master of Science degree program in Information Technology with specialization in Software Engineering.
It is a one and a half-year full time residential program. The first year is offered in SSN School of Advanced Software Engineering.
In this period, the students complete core courses, prerequisites, electives and project work. Experienced faculty of SSNSASE and practicing professionals conduct the courses in the first year using Carnegie Mellon courseware. The faculty of SSNSASE and Carnegie Mellon University continuously evaluate the students.
On successful completion of the one-year curriculum in India, the students get a certificate from Carnegie Mellon University. They can then proceed to Carnegie Mellon University to complete further studies in six months, and obtain the MSIT degree. The coursework at Carnegie Mellon University consists of project work under the supervision of Carnegie Mellon University and two electives.
Admissions into all courses are done by following the rules and regulations that exist during that year. A certain percentage of seats go into the Anna University Single Window System and the remaining seats are included in the management quota. The percentage may vary each year.SSN gives out applications for the management quota seats in June(after the XII results are announced) and based on their cut-off marks students are short listed. A test and an interview is conducted for Management Quota seats for Bachelors Courses and candidates are shortlisted solely based on merit and proper consideration of caste based quotas as prescribed by the government.The test and interview take place at SSN college itself.The test consists of aptitude,I.Q Maths and English grammar MCQ questions and is usually for 100 marks in 40 mins.The interview is conducted immediately afterwards for those who have cleared the test.The student accompanied by a parent is interviewed by a two-member faculty team.The SSN administration then ranks the students for the management seats as follows:
Seats for Masters courses are offered on the basis of TANCET scores by AU SWS as well as by management quota following all procedures.Merit students are only given the preference. Admission into SSNSASE is based on a written test, followed by interview and then a final interview by a panel from CMU
