I have an MCA with 75% marks. I am working as a software engineer from 6 years and currently in the US. I would like to do MS. Is it a good idea to do it. I am a technical person n see myself as an architect in few years. If not MS then can you suggest some good courses in good universities which can help pursue my dreams.

Dear Zabin,

Greetings from Hotcourses!

You can definitely opt for a Masters degree to enhance your career but it should be in a relevant field. Masters in Architecture requires an undergraduate degree from a relevant field and after MCA you can apply for MS in Computer Science or Software Engg as per your profile and to give you more precise information please share your CV at and get yourself registered on our website at to keep receiving updates on Overseas Education!

Hi Navdeep

Thank you very much for the reply.  I forgot to metion that I have done my Bachelors in Computer Application as well.  As I would like to pursue in computer architecture, do you think there are any MS programs for Computer Architecture or any other short term courses.  I will be sharing my resume soon.  

Awaiting your reply.

Hi Zabin,

Thanks for writing to Hotcourses again Zabin, that's good that you have a very descent profile. If you are planning to pursue Masters in Architecture then you can refer the following Universities. Georgia Tech, Penn State University, University of Texas at Dallas and many more. It will be very convenient for me to short list some more Universities if you could forward me your Cv at

Thanks & Regards,
