Sure you can. Any student with a technology background can easily apply for a Master of Science in computer science program abroad. Universities abroad generally ask for an equivalent undergraduate degree in a related field from a recognized university. Mumbai University is more than recognized, and your BE in information technology is more than a related field of education.

Students from India aim for MS CS programs with bachelor's degrees like BE, BTech and BSc. You can apply to different countries like the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany and many more. A BE in IT degree can be used specifically for an MS CS program. For example, if you are interested in data and analytics areas of CS, your bachelor's is a perfect match. Because both IT and CS are very integrated, it won't be a new thing to give it a go.

You will need other things to aim for an MS CS program abroad. The very first thing is an English language proficiency test. This is an utter requirement that can not be overlooked. Every international student must submit a language test to prove their language expertise. The most common English language tests are TOEFL and IELTS. If you want to study in the USA and Canada, go for TOEFL. Otherwise, IELTS is better for European countries and Australia.

Other than this, you will need a standardized test score. I mean either a GRE or a GMAT exam. These tests are a requirement from universities to see your aptitude. GRE and GMAT exams assess your ability to learn, adapt and perform in the long run. It's better to aim for GRE if you pursue an MS in CS course. GMAT is mainly involved with business programs. With a standardized test and a language proficiency test, you are all set to apply for an MS CS program abroad.

As per your bachelor's and interest in masters, you are focused on STEM subjects. Computer science is a blend of all the STEM subjects. You will find your interests in a variety of topics in MS CS. Therefore, I can say that your decision regarding the master's program is excellent. If you need help finding the best MS in CS programs abroad, you can ask me without hesitation. We can see your records to match the best MS CS programs available.
