About us

Department of MCA: (Master of Computer Applications)

The Department of MCA was established in the academic year 1994 - 95 with an intake of 60 students (42 from counselling and 18 from management). It was first affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University and later to Krishna University, Machilipatnam. From the academic year 2017-2018, Loyola has been granted the status of autonomy for PG courses. We developed a new syllabus (with Python, Android application development, Big Data, Cloud Computing, etc.) for the upcoming batches in order to meet the requirements of the software industry. We offer CBCS (Choice-based Credit System) as part of our curriculum.
MCA is a three-year programme with one full semester devoted to project work. In addition to the core courses in Computer Science covering the basic knowledge areas, there are other courses from Mathematics and Management which enable the students to acquire the required skills for a successful future career. The elective courses offered in the emerging areas give them an opportunity to be in the forefront of technology and applications. The whole-semester individual project is expected to give students an experience in tackling many a problem from its specification through design, implementation, and testing to possible deployment and maintenance planning.
Programme Objectives:
1. To excel in problem solving and programming skills in the various computing fields of IT
2. To develop the ability to plan, analyse, design, code, test, implement & maintain a software
