The institute offers three years full time M.C.A. programme with an intake of 40 students. The course curriculum is divided into six semesters. The course covers all the core subjects essential for the IT field such as Computer organization, Operating systems concepts, System programming elements, Compiler design, Relational database concepts, Communication and networking basics, MIS, Software engineering, Object oriented analysis and design, etc. We also train our students in the programming languages such as C, C++, JAVA and UML concepts and applicational aspects such as Operations research, e-commerce and internet security. In addition to this, students are required to do a project in some industrial / business organization to become accustomed with professional environment.

The institute also offers Ph.D. programme in computer science and Applications The Institute offers Ph.D. in Computer Science and Applications in following areas :

  • Software Metric (Software Engineering).
  • Computer Graphics.
  • Fuzzy Sets & Systems.
  • Computer Aided Geometric Design.
  • Decision Support Systems
The institute is also planning to provide consultancy services to industrial and business organizations in and around the town in near future. Other numerous activities are in the from of Certificate courses, Refresher courses for College teachers and training program for talented students drawn from across the country sponsored are organized on regular basis.
