 The MCA course is the only AICTE approved course on campus. In the six semesters of study, students learn 13 Core CS papers, 7 Elective papers and 10 practicals. The VI semester is exclusively set apart for doing a project work the in an industry/college.  The MCA curriculum incorporates the emerging technologies and practices used in the IT industry.
