Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) is a degree course which prepares students to face the challenges in the field of computers and to make their career in computer applications and software development. It is a three-year undergraduate program of semester pattern where students are exposed to various areas of computer applications. It is designed to produce graduates who have necessary skills and knowledge not only in computer and information technology but also in communication, organization, and management.

While pursuing BCA, students become well versed in programming languages such as Java, C+, HTML, Database Management, SQL, and Python. This program demonstrates sound knowledge in key areas of computer programming. It also carries out the required analysis involved in computer and information systems.

There is a huge scope in the field of information technology for a BCA degree holder. Nowadays a BCA degree is considered equivalent to a B. Tech degree. A large number of IT companies are diverting their choice from BE graduates to BCA, as they claim that, a BCA graduate is capable of doing most of the work that a BE graduate does.

Some students wish to do further studies they go for post-graduate courses like-

  • MCA (Master of Computer Application)
  • MBA (Master of Business Administration)
  • Tech (Master of Technology)
  • MSc IT (Master of Science in Information Technology)
  • MIM (Master Degree in Information Management)
  • Post-graduate Diploma in Computer Applications
  • Post-graduate Diploma in Corporate Studies (PGPCS)
  • Post-graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM)

A majority of students go for MCA as it is the extension of what is taught during BCA. MCA is also a three-year post-graduate degree course. There are many reputed universities which offer a five-year integrated program which includes BCA+MCA. Many students even go for a five-year integrated program of BCA+B. tech. The advantage of this course is that a student saves one year by doing an integrated BCA+MCA or BCA+M. Tech.
