MCA

About the Course

The very fact that industries in India and abroad have been placing the MCA students on regular basis is a proof of the quality of the course and the students.

It is the only department which gives opportunity to both students completing BCA and also to the non-computer science graduates. It encourages students to be able to choose an education line which will eventually allow them to choose a career which students pursuing B.Tech & M.Tech in Computer Science or Information Technology. Students doing MCA from our institution will eventually become good programmers as other Computer Engineers if they put in extra effort during their tenure of Education.

The course is designed to meet the skill requirement of any IT or Application related organization. It is an extremely balanced course with a lot of emphasis laid on planning, designing & building of complex commercial application software & system software and equal importance given to functional knowledge in various areas.

  • One can work for companies such as Microsoft, HP, Aricent etc.

Career Path 2: Devising New Ways to Use Computers

  • This refers to innovation in the application of computer technology.
  • A career path in this area can involve advanced graduate work, followed by a position in a research University or Industrial research and development laboratory.
  • It can involve entrepreneurial activity such as was evident during the dot-com boom of the 1990s or it can involve a combination of the two.

Career Path 3: Developing Effective Ways to Solve Computing Problems

  • This refers to the application or development of computer science theory and knowledge of algorithms to ensure the best possible solutions for computationally intensive problems.
  • As a practical matter, a career path in the development of new computer science theory typically requires graduate work to the Ph.D. level, followed by a position in a research or an industrial research and development laboratory.

Placements

Corporates such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys, Satyam, L & T Infotech, HCL visit the University campus every year and recruit students from 3rd & 4th Year in large numbers. The University has developed special modules to prepare the students to appear for written examinations given by these companies. These modules are handled by its own senior faculty members. The University has hired private enterprises who deal in Personality Development and prepares young students for Group Discussions.

The industry offers packages ranging from 3.0 to 4.5 Lacs per annum. In about 3 to 4 years, the earnings of these youngsters get doubled. For those trained in niche areas of software development such as ERP, VLSI & chip design or in MNCs of repute, the offering from industry is Rs. 4 to 8 Lacs per annum at entry level. Almost 50% of the demand is from the Banking, Finance, Securities, Investment, and Insurance sector.
