The Master of Computer Applications (MCA) is a master's degree, which attracts people from a wide range of academic disciplines. The core courses of this program are designed to introduce students to the various areas of computer science and engineering such as computer programming, software engineering, computer networking, database management system, computer graphics and system analysis. The MCA designation originated in India, emerging from the 20th century as the country began its journey towards becoming an IT superpower and companies sought out information technology to business management.
MCA programs normally take place over three academic years (i.e. approximately 36 months of term time with six semesters). Students take classes during weekdays like other university students and sit for semester examination twice a year.

After MCA a candidate can apply for higher studies through GATE/UGC NET examinations to obtain M.Tech or doctoral degrees in computer science.
To strengthen the placement prospects of the students the department regularly conducts value addition courses such as:
.NET (VB.NET, ASP.NET)
Networking (CCNA, MCSE)
