About Program

Objective: The broad objective of the MCA program is to prepare graduate students for productive careers in software industry and academia by providing an outstanding environment for teaching and research in the core and emerging areas of the discipline. The programs thrust is on giving the students a thorough and sound background in theoretical and application-oriented course relevant to the latest computer software development. The program emphasizes the application or software technology to solve mathematical, computing, communications/ networking and commercial problems.
This Master’s Degree Programme has been designed with a semester approach in mind. The first year courses are aimed at skills development in computers using various technologies, the second year is more focused on core courses providing a conceptual framework and the third year provides the specialization and the project work. After the successful completing of first year courses, the student will receive the PGDCA (Post Graduation Diploma in Computer Applications) certificate.
