Department of Computer Applications (MCA)

The Department of Computer Applications is one of the most vibrant departments in CIT with its committed faculty members and motivated students. Master of Computer Applications is being offered by the department from 1994.

The Program is well conceived to train graduates from the Sciences, Arts and Humanities stream in the discipline of Computer Science and Applications by imparting comprehensive knowledge with equal emphasis on theory, latest programming language and tools and good practical exposure in the relevant areas.

Graduates in Computer Science and Applications can pursue two year M.C.A along with second year of regular M.C.A. programme.

Most of the faculty members of the department, enriched with decades of experience in guiding internship projects from fortune 500 companies working on the latest technologies, are actively involved in research in the niche fields like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Open CL, Network Security, Data Mining, Image Processing and Software Engineering.

The department with its strong research base organized an international conference on Sensors, Security, Software and Intelligent Systems in January 2009 and organized an Indo-US science & Technology Forum sponsored bilateral workshop on Cloud Computing and Web Services during August 2012.

With academic autonomy, the department regularly updates its student focused curriculum and syllabi enabling them to indentify, formulate and solve the problems of all domains and also apply techniques, methods and tools to enhance their ability to adapt to any evolving computing methodologies. These talented students do their internships in foreign universities and software giants and are most sought after by the multinational software giants like IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, Global scholar, Amazon, AMD, ZOHO etc.
