Computer has applications in every aspect of our lives, most significantly in the communication, control systems, health care, education governance and finance. With every passing year, computer software evolves into a faster, more sophisticated, versatile and easy-to-use technology. Indian software industry is a huge sector with double digit growth rate and having a turnover of around US$ 88 billion in 2011, generating direct employment for over 2.5 million people with 6.4% contribution to India’s GDP. India's growing stature in the information age enabled it to form close ties with both the United States of America and the European Union. It is estimated that IT exports from India will touch around US$ 175 billion and the total revenue of the sector will be US$ 225 billion in 2020. Owing to the phenomenal and multidimensional growth of the industry coupled with its lucrative nature, IT has successfully pervaded into all streams of engineering. According to official sources, over 60 to 70% of students across engineering institutions get employed into IT or IT related companies as against core engineering companies. With the increasing applications of IT in all sectors of employment, the demand of IT graduates shall keep on increasing.
Keeping in mind today’s fast paced world’s need of IT graduates, MCA/BCA program at the Computer Application Department of School of Computer & Information Sciences (SCIS) in Galgotias University is designed to bridge the chasm between computing theory and applications. The programme emphasizes on the application of software technology to solve business problems. The programme offers a number of in-depth, application-oriented courses. It covers the methodology to develop an efficient and error free software product, to maintain software products that utilize networking technology and to integrate multiple technologies and other important software applications. Being exposed to quantitative and qualitative analysis skills which are built into the curriculum and training provided by the department, the students are trained to be innovative and creative. The primary emphasis of MCA/BCA curriculum is on the development of diverse types of courses on Application Software rather than designing computer hardware and system software. Fully Flexible Credit System employed at the University helps to provide a wide spectrum of choices to the students. The students may choose to specialize in any of the streams of Computer Science and at the same time take up core computing courses as well as courses of interest from other disciplines.
Our MCA/BCA programmes focus on providing students high-end IT education keeping in view the changing Technology as well as Industry needs to suit the digital economy in dynamic Computer and IT Industry. The School of Computer & Information Sciences is well equipped with the human resource and the infrastructure required to train IT professionals. The faculty members at the Department are from reputed institutions from within India and abroad. They are prominent in their respective field with adequate experience to train IT professionals. The in-house core department at SCIS maintains interaction with Industry experts & academicians to update students’ knowledge. The labs are well equipped with latest hardware and software. Faculty and students have access to reputed journals in the library for carrying out research. This enables them to have an edge over their peer group in other engineering institutes in the region.
