Overview

About the Program

Bachelor of Computer Applications is a 3-year undergraduate programme which is spanned over six semesters. The course is designed to provide an insight into computing through fundamental concepts, principles, strategies and skills supplemented with practical exposure to effectively apply in real-time computing environments by incorporating the latest developments in to the curriculum. The Computer Science department aims to educate students with strong application and programming skills on the latest revolution in technology along with strong moral values to assimilate into the industry at ease. Besides they are enriched with knowledge beyond the curriculum through various value-added courses, certificate courses, seminars, workshops, industrial visits etc. It also prepares the student to pursue post graduate studies anywhere in the world and acquire greater competency.

Program Specifications

  1. GENERAL STRUCTURE

During the first four semesters, the focus is on fundamental principles and concepts in computing by providing Mathematical Foundation, Basics of Statistics, Accounting, Business communication, Digital principles, Problem solving techniques and algorithmic processes to understand, create, test and transform information. In the next two semesters the focus is on engineering considerations, system design, development and applications.

The first four semesters have one English and one Language in Part I, three core courses and two lab–oriented papers in Part II, one Additional Course such as Ability Enhancement /Interdisciplinary/ Skill Enhancement Course and Value education in Part III. The V and VI semesters have core courses, elective courses, and lab-oriented papers with a mini project and Value Education. Electives are offered in the fifth and sixth semesters to streamline the students based on their area of interest. The project emphasize on complete understanding, analyzing, designing, developing, maintaining primarily business, information systems and on recent trends in computing. The course content is regularly updated to keep pace with IT sector.
