Due to the advancement in IT sector, nowadays most of the students are much inclined towards the studies related to computer science and information technology. Most of the times, students with such interest gets confuse that whether they should choose BCA or B. tech as graduation course. These two fields of computer studies are far different from each other. When it comes to choosing a suitable course for future as carrier option, it seems that parents and peers have the say. Generally, it is seen that most of the parents pressurize their children to take up engineering rather than other undergraduate course all because of the fame associated with the name B. Tech. Increasing number of drop outs from professional colleges and the soaring  backlogs are the results of this undue pressure. Usually parents think that B. Tech is more job focused than BCA (which is another relative field of engineering and is a good platform for further studies in computer applications). Though, an interesting aspect which lies in that fact that most of the jobs which were previously acquired by B. tech aspirants are now obtained by BCA degree holders as it covers almost all the fields of computers applications and gives a much deeper knowledge of the languages.

 BCA (bachelor of computer applications) comprises of  ?

Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) is a three-year undergraduate degree in computer applications. Almost all of the universities in India offers a BCA degree, which may be The course includes subjects such as –

  • Programming in C Language (Basic and Advanced)
  • World-Wide-Web
  • Networking

  • Software Engineering, Mathematics
  • Visual Basic
  • Object Oriented Programming using C++
  • Programming using PHP
  • Oracle
  • JAVA
  • Web Scripting and Development
  • Operating Systems, etc.

To get admission into BCA program, one must have passed 12th with approximately 45-50 percent marks from any board. Although, a few of the universities have different procedure and polices for admissions, as some requires mathematics as a compulsory subject at 12th level. As such there is no specific entrance exam for BCA and admissions are mostly based on your 12th   grade scores.

• In today’s scenario, the much expanding IT Sector is more keen to hire aspirants with deep knowledge of all the computer languages for better development in this field. This can be an advantageous aspect for BCA students as they have more theoretical as well as practical understanding with these languages. So, in this way BCA aspirants are eating up the jobs which were previously give to B. Tech candidates. This is the biggest cause for the surging rates of employment for        B. Tech students.
