Introduction

The need of the hour is excellence in every field of operation and particularly “Information Technology”. Realizing this need, BCA Department, is engaged in molding tomorrow’s information and communication technologists today.

Our students are in the field of Computer Science and Applications. Their entry for the course is on the basis of merit. At the undergraduate level their performance at HSC (Science) is the criteria for the admission. This is only the undergraduate programme in SPPU, Pune where Credit System is implemented. The special feature of this course is practical quantum in syllabus. Ratio of theory and practical is equal i.e. 50 % course contents are directly related with hands on machine.

We are proud that the students opt for our centre with highest priority. As a result, the students of New Arts, Commerce & Science College, Ahmednagar are at the forefront in the IT field. During their graduate studies they undertake the project based assignments which are relevant to the current Industrial needs. This practical have helped students to apply their theoretical knowledge to the real life situation.

Through practical demonstrations, Guest Lectures, Group Discussions etc, we bring the latest in computer technology to our students. Co-curricular activities sharpen their minds and other skills that help in overall development.
