The Department of Computer Applications was established in 1994 in response to the need for well qualified software professionals moulded to meet the demands in the field of Computer Applications. The department has one of the most eclectic mix of students at CIT with background in Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, Commerce and Management.
This diversity is the strength of the MCA programme and contributes immensely to the all-round development of students graduating from the programme. This is coupled with constantly upgraded infrastructure and experienced faculty with a strong background in both academics and industry.
