About the Course
Technology is defined as the applications of Basic Science. The past two revolutions, industrial and electronic, have transformed the society from agricultural to industrial and then to electronic. The electronically based technologies focused in information gathering, processing and distribution. The use of this technology in all sectors gave the birth to Computer Industry and its unprecedented growth launched another revolution in Communication.
Information, the basic raw material for the Decision Support System, can be derived from processing of huge database related with different sectors. Systematic storage and management with adequate security are essential for data retrieval and processing to generate information. The information technology plays an important role in all areas. But the main drawback is the technophobia of the people to adapt with the new technologies. This may be due to lack of awareness of the merits and advantages of new technologies. So our youths have to be equipped with all kinds of knowledge tools to work with computers comfortably which are basic requirements to provide human resource to the industry.
The radical changes in technologies, both hardware as well as software, and their ever increasing adaptation to newer areas of application, demand frequent updating of the academic curriculum so that the students can rise to the expectation of the Industry. The syllabus revision committee has considered all these factors thoroughly before venturing into the revision exercise.
The revised syllabus for BCA Programme provides a strong foundation to pursue post graduation programme in computer science / applications. The knowledge acquired by the students may also equip them to meet the industrial need, and get placed.
