Introduction
  • The name of the programmer shall be Master Of Computer Application (M.C.A) Integrated.
  • The knowledge and skills required to plan, design and build complex application Software systems are highly valued in all industry sectors including business, health, education and the arts. The basic objective of the education of the Masters programme in Computer Application (M.C.A) is to provide to the country a steady stream of the necessary knowledge, skills and foundation for acquiring a wide range of rewarding careers into the rapidly expanding word of the Information Technology.
  • Specific elective courses to be offered in functional areas have to depend on student preferences, faculty availability and needs of the user systems in the region in which the educational institution is located
  • The M.C.A program is a mix of computer-related and general business courses. The computer related courses use microcomputers to introduce standard techniques of programming; the use of software packages including word processors, worksheets, spreadsheets and databases; system analysis and design. The general business courses include the functional areas of management like accounting, sales, purchase, inventory, and production. The course would emphasis the study and creation of business applications, rather than more programming. This would emphasize on domain knowledge of various area, which would help the students to build software applications on it. The students are exposed to system development in the information-processing environment, with special emphasis on Management Information Systems and Software Engineering for small and medium computer systems. Also, exposure to microcomputer technology, micro-based systems design and micro applications software, including network and graphical wear interface systems is provided.
  • The M.C.A. Integrated programme will be a full-time three years Master's Degree Course of Computer Applications.
  • The new Curricula would focus on imparting skills, rather than knowledge to student. In other words, less theory, more practical.
  • The inclusion of projects at three levels ensures the focus on applying the skill learnt at respective levels.
  • The Institutes should organize placement programme for the M.C.A students, by interacting with the industries and software consultancy houses in and around the region in which the educational instruction is located.
  • Ordinarily, in each class, not more than 60 students will be admitted.
Job Opportunities
  • Many graduates begin their careers as junior programmers and, after some experience, are promoted to programmers, system analysts, and programmer/analysts. Other seek entrepreneurial role in the computer world as independent business owners, software authors, consultants, or suppliers of systems and equipment. Career opportunities exist in such areas as management software and hardware sales, technical writing, training others on computer, consulting, software development and technical support.
  • Application areas include transaction processing (such as order processing, airline reservations, banking system), accounting functions, sales analysis, games, forecasting and simulation, database management, decision support and data communications.
Eligibility for Admission:
  • Graduate (50% Marks) with valid MAH-MCA-CET 2018 Score. Mathematics compulsory at 10th /12th / Graduation Level. Merit List is published by DTE.
Selection Basis
  • The selection would be done as per the guidelines given by the Director of Technical Education Maharashtra State time to time.
Code of Conduct for Students
  • Every Student admitted to this Institute will abide by the Code of Conduct mentioned in Ordinance No. 157 of SPPU.
Number of Lectures and Practical

  • Students should take guidance from an internal guide and prepare a Project Report on Project Work in 2 copies to be submitted to the Director of the Institute by 30th April. Whenever possible, a separate file containing source-code listings should also be submitted. Every student should also submit at least 4 typed copies of their project synopsis. Their respective Institutes should forward one copy of this synopsis to each of the external panel members, in advance of the project viva dates.
  • The Project Synopsis should contain an Introduction to Project, which should clearly explain the project scope in detail. Also, Data Dictionary, DFDs, ERDs, File designs and a list of output reports should be included.
  • The project Work should of such a nature that it could prove useful or be relevant from the commercial/management angle.
  • The project report will be duly accessed by the internal guide of the subject and marks will be communicated by the Director to the University along with the marks of the internal credit for theory and practical to be communicated for all other courses.
  • The project report should be prepared in a format prescribed by the University, which also specifies the contents and methods of presentation.
  • The major project work carry 200 marks for internal assessment and 300 marks for external viva. The external viva shall be conducted by a minimum of two external examiners. The mini project work would be departmental.
  • Project work can be carried out in the Institute or outside with prior permission of the Institute.
  • Project viva-voce by the University panel will be conducted in the month of April-May.
Assessment

The final total assessment of the candidate is made in terms of an internal assessment and an external assessment for each course.

  • For each paper, 30% marks will be based on internal assessment and 70% marks for semester and examination (external assessment), unless otherwise stated.
  • The division of the 30 marks allotted to internal assessment of theory papers is on the basis of tutorial paper of 15 marks and seminars, presentations and attendance of 15 marks.
  • The marks of the mini project would be given on the basis of internal assessment of the project, project viva and project report.
  • The marks of the practicals would be given on internal practical exam & oral.
  • The internal marks will be communicated to the University at the end of each semester, but before the semester and examinations. These marks will be considered for the declaration of the results.
