The Department of Computer Applications (MCA) was started in the year 2003. Started with an intake of 60 students, the sanctioned intake was increased to 120 seats in 2007. In the year 2010, the sanctioned intake was increased to 180 seats.
In this era of technological explosion, the department is dedicated to maintaining a high standard of excellence through quality, technology and innovation. The MCA program seeks to prepare participants for high level careers in the ever expanding field of Computer Applications. It comprises a comprehensive and integrated sequence of courses aiming to develop knowledge and skills in all areas of Computer Applications. Realizing the importance of multinational companies eyeing India as the bastion for software production, the Department objective is to train the students in both theory and practice on one side and in software and hardware development on the other side, so that they become competent software and hardware professional. In this way the Department aims to prepare to become employable on their own skills.
Over the years, the department has built-up a well-equipped laboratory and an excellent departmental library. It believes in academic excellence through value based education, which is conducive to boost the inherent capabilities and confidence of the students to take up the challenges of the rapidly changing world.
The department has organized various workshops in collaboration with the industry to keep abreast with the latest updates and conducted lecture series by eminent personalities from the industry and academia. To foster creativity amongst the students and faculty it brings forth National Conference titled Emerging Issues in Computer Applications once in a year.
To enlighten and explore every mind technically, a National Level Technical Symposium "Zelos" is being organized by our Students on a yearly basis.
The department is publishing a quarterly National Journal entitled Journal of Computer Applications (ISSN No. 0974 1925). We have eminent persons from various institutions (both National and International) on our Editorial board to review the research papers.
The department, to its credit, has also set up a unique scholarship facility, to motivate the students to excel in academics. The staff and the students of the department are involved in various research activities enabling publications in various journals and at International Conferences.
Our computer centre is kept open even after the college hours to help the students to enhance their programming skills using current and latest software tools.
Students can surf the internet from 8.40 AM to 8.00 PM. Sophisticated and latest software have been purchased to enable the faculty as well as students to pursue their research / project works. Our faculty members are constantly updating their knowledge to meet the growing demands of the student community by attending and presenting National and International Conferences and Seminars respectively.
Each and every faculty member of the department is a life member of the Computer Society of India. Thus, the post-graduation program produces ideal Software Professionals, well equipped to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing IT industry.
