History of MCA & About Us

Andhra Loyola College was established in 1954 and is managed by the Loyola College Society, Guntur –Vijayawada. The ‘Jesuits', who manage the institution, are members of an international religious order of Catholic Priests and Brothers known as "The Society of Jesus", founded by the Soldier turned Saint, Ignatius of Loyola, with the aim of serving God and humanity. The Society of Jesus, otherwise known as ‘ the Jesuit Order' , carries out its mission chiefly through its educational institutions. There are more than 2000 such institutions established by the Society of Jesus throughout the world. The vision of Jesuit education is to form leaders in service in imitation of Jesus Christ, men and women of competence, conscience and compassionate commitment. Andhra Loyola College is one such educational institution founded by the Society of Jesus. It takes its name from the founder of the Jesuit Order, St Ignatius of Loyola. 


 The Postgraduate Department of Computer Applications was started in 1994, with a three-year full-time MCA program approved by AICTE and affiliated with Krishna University. The Department aims at providing quality computer professionals, besides preparing professionally competent, ethically conscious, and socially responsible students to cater to the present needs of information technology and society.

The objective of this department is to develop exemplary individuals both in profession and in society. Therefore consistent and constant efforts are made to groom each student professionally and individually.  The faculty members are ever ready to guide the students in their difficulties. The students find mentoring activities very useful. The department undertakes many Co-circular & Extracurricular activities on a regular basis encouraging all the students to participate effectively.
The department has an eminently qualified & experienced exuberant faculty representing all significant streams of IT discipline. The department is also assisted by professionals from different areas in the IT sector, who enrich the students to develop into competent professionals in the demanding and dynamic environment.

           Mini projects are made mandatory for the students from the third semester which helps them to enhance their analytical skills and programming logic thereby becoming exuberant. 

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 counseling and 18 from management). It was first affiliated with Acharya Nagarjuna University and later with 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.
