Difference between BCA and B-TECH

Many students have confusion in choosing between btech and BCA. There is lot of similarities in both the courses as both are in area of computer related applications.

B-tech is mostly chosen by students who wish to be engineer in IT sector or software developer. B-tech is 4year course and students after completing go for M.TECH where’s after completing BCA student go for MCA.
BCA compared to B.TECH is less technical and students from the stream of Arts and commerce can also do BCA whereas only science students can opt for B.TECH.

(IBSAR) is a very well known college due to its various under graduates and Post- graduate’s programmes in fields of Human Resource, Marketing, Banking sector and many more.

IBSAR has its own hostel as many students come from different states and is also AICTE approved. Admission is through MAT and CAT exams and the college also has its interview process which is the last stage of admission.

  • National Institute of Management (NIM)

NIM is a private College Admission is done on the basis of 12th marks but they also have their own exam which is a bit difficult to crack.

The main area where this college is better is in providing short term courses and for its distant learning. Students may do distant BCA if he/she has a problem in attending regular college.

The fees are also relatively low compared to other private colleges.
