Abstract

Information Science as a subject is an important interdisciplinary knowledge cluster and is very much close to Information Technology and Computer Science. But Information Science also deals with some other knowledge gradients such as Information Studies, Knowledge Management and hence Management Science. Still, MTech or BTech programme is mainly popular in India, it’s neighbouring countries and some UK Asian countries. As far as Information Science with MTech is concerned, not a single programme available on this nomenclature; but huge possibilities are there to introduce such programme with mixing up Engineering faculties with existing Information Science schools. Thus, this paper discusses about Information Science, it’s changing nature, and also about need and potentiality of five years integrated MTech-Information Science programme.

Keywords: Information science, informatics, MSc, MTech, education sector, educational systems, AICTE India
