Abstract

During 1990’s as an innovative effort to develop the qualified professionals in Computer & IT sector, University Grant Commission (UGC), India, has allowed non-computer graduates to do three years Masters degree programme in Computer Science (MCA). Even after introduction of B.Tech programme in Information technology, the MCA programme remain both popular and relevant. MCA programmes are run throughout the country, as they are seen to be relevant for the programming in IT industries. Although critics of the programmes have been numerous, large companies and increasingly small ones as well continue to see real value in the MCA. But due to lack of innovations and autonomy, MCA degree programme offered by many Universities in India have failed to attract both industries and students. In order to improve the quality of MCA graduates & attract BCA graduates to the programme we have proposed a new MCA model with dual specializations on programming & networking at Srinivas University. In this paper, we have presented the objectives, special features, regulations, core subjects to be studied along with their credits, elective areas and subjects, types of projects to be completed in each semester, examination scheme etc. of this two years, four semester MCA programme. This course is expected to supply more quality & competitive graduates for IT companies.

Keywords: Innovations in Computer Application Courses & Dual Specialization MCA Programme
