HOD's Desk

Welcome to the Department of Computer Applications.

Dr.Chitra A. , Professor & Head

The Master of Computer Applications (MCA) programme was a unique programme envisioned by the Department of Electronics (DOE), Government of India in the 1980s, anticipating the rise of India as an Information Technology superpower and the impending manpower requirements that would be needed to handle the global and in-house demands. Realising the fact that the prevalent education system was only churning out a miniscule percentage of graduates in Computer Science and that too only from the Engineering Sciences stream which would in no way match the huge futuristic demands. The 3-year MCA programme was well conceived to target and train graduates from the Sciences, Arts and Humanities stream in the discipline of Computer Science and Applications as prospective IT workers.

PSG College of Technology was one among 14 institutions selected by the DOE, across India, to run the programme. It was the second institution to have started the programme in India and the first in South India. The programme was inaugurated by (Late) Dr M G Ramachandran, former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu. The programme is funded by the State Government and the first AICTE approval for the programme was obtained in 1995. The National Board of Accreditation has also accredited the programme with the prestigious A grade for 5 years in the year 2004.
