Top 20 MS Computer Science Programs in Europe

It’s mid-November, and as usual, I got flooded with queries regarding college lists, admission procedures, application deadlines and availability of scholarships. Not a surprise to me, a lion share of queries have been from the Computer Science and Information Technology graduates. However, there is a difference this time. Unlike last two years (I was used to getting queries from college students), most of the queries are from working professionals (having work experience of 1.5 – 3.5 years). Either I am getting noticed by the matured folks, or maybe the applicants are raising their bar after realizing the competition of the admission process for foreign universities. Whatever the case might be, I couldn’t deal with all queries on a personalized basis. So, to make up for that, I am writing this blog post in an attempt to answer the majority of those queries – the best universities for Masters in Computer Science with Scholarship opportunities, top computer science universities for Indian students in terms of ROI, best computer science programs in Europe, programs with a good job opportunities, programs with low or no tuition fees, and so on.
