Yes, M. Tech(IT) degree offered by KSOU is recognized by the UGC. The KSOU is a recognized open university and you could go for the desired degree fromt this university. But, if you could avail the regular degree, it is far better than a distance learning program as you will have more practical exposure than that you would have through the distance learning. If you are in a job, you don't have any other alternative.
KSOU offers their courses in a number of modes which you can get from their website. They have collaboration with a number of institutes for a number of courses. For the M. Tech (IT) program, I had searched their site for a while and finally got to know that the KSOU university offers the M. Tech(IT) through VET(Virtual Educational Trust) which was established in the year 2001 with an objective of providing modern education with special emphasis on information and management through virtual and distance learning modes, for the benefit of under privileged groups by operating in rural and remote areas.
Here is the details about the recognition of the university which was given by me to another user for a similar question.
Karnataka State Open University(KSOU)being a distance education university in affiliated to Distance Education Council (DEC) New Delhi. http://www.dec.ac.in/……
You can find the recognition document in the aforementioned website under ODL Universities, Institutes Approved by DEC KSOU is also been approved by the Karnataka govt vide Government notification no ED 1 UOV 95 dated 12th February 1996 (KSOU Act – 1992).
M.Tech (IT) of KSOU is not recognised by UGC and AICTE. It is recgonised by Distance Education Council of India (govt.body). These degrees are useful for government employees to further their qualification for promotion/increments.
M.Tech IT program offered by Karnataka state open university is not AICTE approved. This course is yet not started in the university itself. Course offered from Study centers only. If you want to take only degree with no use in future then go for this. No matter is available on the university site. Rest is up to you.
