The Department of Computer Science was founded in 1993 to offer the MCA Programme, the first Self-financed course in the college under the pioneering leadership of Dr. (Mrs.). Rani Siromoney. The hallmark of the Department is its stable, qualified, experienced and committed team of faculty members. The MCA syllabus emphasizes the fundamental principles of Computer Science and is updated regularly according to the needs of the industry, in order to enhance the immediate employability of the students. The department has a well-administered laboratory and a well-stocked library, with a successful track record of placement. With such an academic standing, the Department has educated and trained students consistently to high standards and nurtured them to have excellent social and technical skills to compete with their peers from the best institutions of higher education.

Admission to MCA is based on merit and without any capitation fee/donations from the time of inception till now. The course received the approval of the AICTE in the year 2000. The course content comprises of the foundational subjects of Computer Science, Programming languages and Elective subjects that are upgraded according to the emerging trends in IT which enhance the immediate employability of our students.

From the year 2009, the department has a collaborative staff-student research which has expanded the department’s impact not only in the IT industry but also into the area of research. The department has entered into an International map by offering course to International students from 2017. Thus the department is continuing to have sublime success by the grace of God and the continuous dedicated work of the staff and the students of the department.

Course structure and Curriculum

 Course structure and Curriculum

 The MCA course is the only AICTE approved course on campus. In the six semesters of study, students learn 13 Core CS papers, 7 Elective papers and 10 practicals. The VI semester is exclusively set apart for doing a project work the in an industry/college.  The MCA curriculum incorporates the emerging technologies and practices used in the IT industry. The curriculum is designed and periodically updated to be on par with the syllabi of several leading universities, and in consultation with our Industry patrons and the Alumni of the department. The highlight of the program is that students are trained not only to have hands-on experience  in their regular lab works, but also trained to design and develop applications in almost all the subjects of study through case-studies.

Curriculum for MCA 2017

 

Research Collaboration and Projects

 Research Collaboration and Projects

 

The Department of Computer Science in collaboration with Christian Medical College Vellore and Liverpool Hope University, UK, is actively pursuing research in the area of Medical Image Processing, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing. The collaboration and active research was initiated by Ms. Feminna Sheeba, Associate Professor in the department. She visited Liverpool Hope University, UK in August, 2011 and March, 2012 to present the work. Research Projects are carried out involving development of applications in the above areas. Final year MCA students actively involve in the development of applications. Some of the students take this development work as part of the VI Semester Project Work.

 

International Partnership

 

International Partnership

The department offers a Trimester course to the IT students of Sungkonghoe University (SKHU), South Korea on their India Window Program (IWP) from January to November 2017. As per the requirement of SKHU, this programme focuses on Java and Android including the subjects Java Programming I & II, Advanced Java, Java Frameworks and Android. The last semester is exclusively for an industry based internship. 

Events

 

Events

Orientation Program for I MCA

The MCA classes start with an Orientation Program offered by the department for three days, so that the students gel with the ethos of the College and the department.

Techwoods

Techwoods is an annual National Level Technical Symposium conducted by the Department, with the aim of providing our students with the opportunity to interact with the students of other Universities/Colleges and offering them a platform to sharpen their problem-solving, programing, and team-playing skills. Students also bring out an annual technical magazine during that time called Techchip with articles and creative writings.

Community Outreach

Students help the extension units of the college by handling their computer skills classes. Every year, the final year students of MCA, spend a day in the Family Life Institute, Mappedu, as part of their training ‘Personality Development and Personnel Management’ exercising team playing for a good cause.

Training

Training called ‘Personal Excellence and Personnel Management’ is offered to the final year MCA students. The training focuses on Shaping up the attitudes and developing the soft skills of the students. The Training topics are aptitude, mental ability, logical reasoning, communication skills, assertive behavior, team playing, time management, stress managementand integrity. Some of the training methods offered are Games, exercises, public speaking, tests, group discussions and role playing. The training ends with a team work for a good cause in FLI, Mappedu.

Study Tour

The students conduct an annual department study tour. The tour is enriched by various Industrial visits, Field trips and useful sightseeing.
