The broad objective of the MCA programme is to prepare graduate students for productive careers in software industry and academia by providing an outstanding environment for teaching and research in the core and emerging areas of the discipline. The Programme’s thrust is on giving the students a thorough and sound background in theoretical and application-oriented courses relevant to the latest computer software development. The programme emphasizes the application of software technology to solve mathematical, computing, communications/networking and commercial problems. This Master’s Degree Programme has been designed with a semester approach in mind. The first year courses are aimed at skills development in computers using various technologies, the second year is more focused on core courses providing conceptual frame work and the third year provides the specialization and the project work.

1st Semester + Rs. 1,000 for CS-60 for non-Maths students. Rs. 8,000 per semester (2nd Semester onwards)


(a) Completion of the programme requires successful completion of both assignment component and the Term­end Examination component for each of the course's in the programme. The total numbers of courses in this MCA programme are 31 and the total number of credits is 108.

(b) Continuous evaluation through Assignment with a wcightage of 25% (please refer to the table below). Viva- voce is compulsory for all the Asignmentsfor which 20 marks are allocated. Term-end examination with a weightage of75% (please refer to the table below).

Note: A lear.ner should not apply for appearing at the term-end examination of any course without getting registeredfor the same and that if slhe does so, her/his result would not be declared and the onus shall be on him.

Assignments and Term - End Examination

The main purpose of assignments is to test student's comprehension of learning the materials they receive from the University and also to help them get through the courses by providing feedback to them. The information given in the printed course materials should be sufficient for answering the assignments. However, as the Computer Science is ever enhancing area, the students should make an attempt and work with extra reading material easily available in the study centre / Regional Centre libraries or through websites for working on the assignments. This will enhance your learning capabilities.

Mostly the assignments are designed in such a way as to help you concentrate mainly on the printed course material, exploit their personal experiences and apply the knowledge gained from various sources.


There will be only one assignment for each course worth 100 marks (weightage of 250%). The set of all the assignments for each semester are given in one booklet that you will get along with your course material as well as the same will be uploaded on the IGNOU's website also.
