Department of Computer Applications
Master of Computer Applications (MCA) is a three-year (six semesters) professional Master's Degree in computer science awarded in India. The course was designed to meet the growing demand for qualified professionals in the field of Information Technology. It is a postgraduate course that can be taken up after obtaining a Bachelor's Degree. The MCA programme is inclined more toward Application Development and thus has more emphasis on latest programming language and tools to develop better and faster applications.
The MCA program focuses on providing a sound theoretical background as well as good practical exposure to students in the relevant areas. It is intended to provide a modern, industry-oriented education in applied computer science. It aims at producing trained professionals who can successfully meet the demands of the information technology industry.
Being a full-time post graduate degree course with a duration of three years (six semesters), our mca covers various aspects of computational theory,programming, algorithm design and optimization, network and database management, mobile technologies, electronics, mathematics, probability,statistics, accounting, finance, etc.
The MCA program prepares students to take up positions as system analysts,systems designers, Programmers and managers in any field related to information technology. The program, therefore, aims at imparting comprehensive knowledge with equal emphasis on theory and practice. The MCA students are encouraged to spend a full semester working in the industry in the institute giving them insight into the workings of the IT world. However, the course curriculum has enough flexibility to enable a student to undertake advance studies in computer science later on.
The course is structured for the entire duration be completed in 6 semesters. The first semester comprises mostly of common subjects needed to build a base for the subjects to follow in pursuance of the objectives of the course. The2nd to 5th semesters will be mostly divided into core subjects and electives, which offer the student a choice to build expertise in some fields based on personal choice. The last semester will be devoted to project work testing the students application in the fields studied so far and provide valuable experience before stepping into the professional world of information technology.
