This program is focused towards enhancing employability of the students.
To supplement the core, elective subjects are offered to provide a better understanding of the technology behind the applications of computing.
The students are given a thorough exposure of the basic working of a computer through experiments conducted on various digital devices and microprocessors for underpinning their concepts.
They are equipped with the latest configuration, networked to high end servers in the server room. All systems provide access to high end softwares and are Wi-fi enabled, providing access to Internet which can be extended. The labs are equipped with LCD projectors to aid the learning process.
Along with the theory courses, assignments are given to hone the students’ analytical and problem solving skills. The assignments provide an opportunity for students to apply the knowledge and skills gained in various courses as they synthesize a solution to a significant, realistic and practical problem.
While conventional methodologies in terms of classroom learning are important, students are provided with considerable exposure to real life situations by the way of case studies and projects. Students work in teams to analyze the problem, plan software development and implement a solution. Students work closely with faculty members and periodically make presentations about the technical work and process issues.
To prepare the students for technical positions in the software industry and to give the necessary hands-on practical experience, the curriculum includes 4 months of professional training in the industry during 4th semester of MCA.
