    • MCA Programme & Course Structure

      The 3-year (6-semester) Master of Computer Applications (MCA) programme of the Institute is approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).

      The MCA programme was designed by the Department of Electronics, Government of India in the early 1980’s as a training programme that would equip graduates to fulfill the increasing demand for software specialists. It was envisaged that the MCA graduates would fill positions of systems analysts, information systems specialists, application programmers and systems engineers. This has worked out to exceed expectations. MCA's are widely accepted today by Indian industry.

      The curriculum is designed so as to help students develop strong software competencies and analytical and problem solving abilities – the requisite skills to prepare them for successful careers as software professionals. The course structure and contents are regularly updated.

      The programme objectives as interpreted at this Institute are as follows. The programme imparts:

            1.  Knowledge and practice covering various aspects of computer usage in business, industry and service sectors

            2.  Skills to candidates to enable them to perform as application systems designers and systems managers, in major areas of computer applications

      Thus the MCA programme here includes:

      a)  A comprehensive knowledge of systems including their capabilities and limitations

      b)  An appreciation of the application environment

      c)  Skills for management of complex software projects, and

      d)  A sound foundation of quantitative tools and techniques

      There are three broad components of the programme:

      ·  Mathematical background for digital computers                            

      ·  Computers and systems science courses                                 

      ·   Management and behavioural science courses                        

      A unique feature of the MCA programme at this Institute is that the sixth and final semester is devoted to a compulsory 20-week software development project in industry, enabling the students to gain valuable hands-on experience.

    • Discipline, Rules & Regulations, Hostel, Medical Examination

      Institute Rules & Regulations: For details of Institute rules and regulations, please see booklet provided at the time of admission.

      The Institute places a very high emphasis on discipline of students both inside and outside the campus. Students must abide by the Institute and Hostel rules and agree to conform to the rules and regulations enforced from time to time. They must not do anything either inside or outside the Institute that will interfere with its orderly governance, discipline and image. Students must attend lectures, tutorials and practical classes regularly. A minimum attendance of 75% in lectures, tutorials and sessionals for each subject is essential for appearing in the Semester Examinations. Thus, students should attend all theory and laboratory classes from the first day of the academic year. In case of absence due to unavoidable circumstances, students are advised to take prior permission from the Dean / Head. In case of absence due to illness, students will have to produce a Medical Certificate with an application from their parents or guardians. In such a case, parents/guardians or Hostel Warden should inform the authorities immediately. Students should strike a proper balance between extra­curricular activities and academic requirements. A student’s participation in extra-curricular activities should not be allowed to interfere in his/her academic schedule.

      During teaching hours, the main lobby, the library, the corridors of the Institute and the area surrounding the Institute are to be observed as silence zones. Students must not cause any disturbance in these zones. Students must not indulge in any kind of misconduct or indiscipline or anti-social activities within or outside the campus. Students must not form a group causing any hindrance to the academic and administrative activities of the College. Those found doing so will be punished and strict disciplinary action will be taken by the authorities. Students shall not damage the property of the Institute. Cost of such damage will be recovered from students, parents/guardians of the students.

      Students must always carry their Identity Card and produce it on request. In case of loss or damage or Identity Card, the concerned authorities should be informed immediately.

      Students are not permitted to enter and use the laboratory / workshop / sports ground if they do not wear appropriate dress. For example, they should enter the laboratory only with apron, cap or mask as instructed. Students should park their cycles in an orderly manner at the cycle stands. Students should follow the rules of the Hostel Mess / Canteen. Students are advised to read the Notice Boards regularly.

      Students are strictly prohibited from possessing or consuming spirits, tobacco products and narcotic drugs either within or outside the campus, and if found violating this will be rusticated immediately, without warning.

      Ragging in any form inside or outside the campus is strictly prohibited by law. Any students found ragging other students will be summarily expelled from the Institute and dealt with as per the directive of Hon. Supreme Court/Hon. High Court.

      Each student must read the “UGC Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions, 2009” on the UGC website, and the two affidavits provided with the regulations, one for the student and one for his /her parent, to be prepared on Non- Judicial Stamp Paper, one to be signed by the student and the other to be signed by his / her parent, and both to be countersigned by Public Notary. Each student admitted to any of the Institute’s programmes must submit the two completed affidavits at the time of admission. Printed copy of the UGC regulations and affidavit may be provided, if required, at the time of counselling.

      Hostel: Hostel facilities are provided only at Mesra. All students admitted at Mesra are required to reside in one of the Institute hostels, to which they are allotted and must take food along with other inmates of the hostel in the common mess. There are separate hostels for girls students.

      Medical

      All selected students will be required to undergo medical examination by a Medical Officer of the Institute and their admission is subject to being found medically fit for the Programme. Therefore, candidates, for their own satisfaction, are advised to get themselves examined by a registered medical practitioner.

      Applicability of Regulations for the time being in force, Disclaimer and Legal Jurisdiction 

      Notwithstanding the nature of a programme spread over more than one academic year, the regulations in force at the time a student joins a programme shall hold good only for the examinations held during or at the end of the semester. Nothing in these regulations shall be deemed to debar the Institute from amending the regulations subsequently and the amended regulations, if any, shall apply to all students old or new, as specified therein.

      Disclaimer

      The statements made in this Information Brochure and all other information, contained herein are believed to be correct at the time of publication. However, the Institute reserves the right to make at any or without notice, changes in and additions to the regulations, conditions governing the conduct of students, requirements for degree, fees and any other information, or statements contained in this Information Brochure. No responsibility will be accepted by the Institute for hardship or expense encountered by its students or any other person for such changes, additions, omissions or errors, no matter how they are caused.

      Legal Jurisdiction
