Master of Computer Applications (MCA) emphasizes on the design and application of information systems and provides a solid background in business functions and Information Technology and covers latest developments in areas where commerce and computing and in general, applications and technology blend together successfully and define the state of art.

MCA students acquire strength in principles, concepts and foundations of computer science, information technology and various applications. They would also have extensive programming / software development experience over a wide variety of platforms / applications. The curriculum has explicitly identified lab components for every course that discusses the principles with an implementation component.

The course is well balanced with significant emphasis on planning, designing and building complex commercial application software and system software. The application areas include transaction processing (such as banking, stock exchange order processing), simulation, database management, e-commerce, networking, embedded technologies, bioinformatics etc.

This MCA programme is not only a complete professional grooming for students for a successful career in the IT industry, but also, provides value-based education through a system of wholesome learning.

This is a 3 year Post Graduate program specializing on Computer Applications. The students admitted to this program are with a graduation (B.Sc.) in Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science, BCA and B.Com. Also there is a provision for academically bright students with BCA, B.Sc (Information Technology) and B.Sc (Computer Science), to directly join the second year of the MCA programme through the lateral entry scheme.

Eligibility: BCA, BSc (CSc) or BSc (IT) with Mathematics or Statistics as one of the subjects, with an aggregate of minimum 60% marks.
