English and Mathematics is compulsory subject with an average of 50% marks at the 10 + 2 level. Student of PCB (physics, chemistry and biology) can also apply for BCA after six month certificate course for mathematics

B.Tech (IT/CSE)

Today in globalized world Bachelor in Technology or B Tech is sought after course in our country which gives you name and fame both. B.Tech is four year professional course. Here you buildup yourself with engineering skill in different stream like Computer Science, Electronics, Information Technology (IT), Electrical, Instrumental, Metallurgy, Mechanical and Civil. The 4 year planning is consisting of theoretical as well as practical knowledge.

Eligibility :

Student have passed higher secondary or 10 + 2 in science with minimum 50% marks are eligible to appear for JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) for admission to engineering courses in IITs, NITs and other private engineering institutes.

Course details :
The subjects of first two semesters are common across all branches after that students move on to do their field of specialization.

B Tech in Information Technology deals with subjects like DBMS (database management systems), Programming languages, Digital and Analog electronics, networking and telecommunications.
