Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise.
The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, engineering, healthcare, e-commerce and computer services
Bachelor of Computer Applications is a 3 years under-graduate degree course (09999554512) in the field of Computer Applications. Some students use online or distance education programs to earn this degree.
The course aims at realizing the following student objectives:
• To demonstrate a sound knowledge in key areas of computer science or industrial computing.
• To demonstrate a substantial understanding of concepts in key areas of computer science.
• To carry out the required analysis and synthesis involved in computer systems, information systems and computer applications.
• To demonstrate professional competence in developing software and in its design and implementation.
• To develop sound practical skills to enable them to addressing problems which arise from computer systems and applications.
A Master of Science in Information Technology (abbreviated M.Sc. IT, MSc IT or MSIT) is a type of postgraduate academicmaster's degree usually offered in a University's College of Business and in the recent years in integrated Information Science & Technology colleges. The MSIT degree is designed for those managing information technology, especially the information systems development process. The MSIT degree is functionally equivalent to a Master of Information Systems Management, which is one of several specialized master's degree programs recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The course of study is concentrated around the Information Systems discipline. The core courses are (typically) Systems analysis, Systems design, Data Communications, Database design, Project management and Security. The degree typically includes coursework in both computer science and business skills, but the core curriculum might depend on the school and result in other degrees and specializations, including:
• Master of Science (Information Technology) M.Sc.(I.T)
• Master in Information Science (MIS)
• Master of Science in Information Systems Management (MISM)
• Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT)
• Master of Computer Science (MCS)
• Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS)
• Master of Science in Management of Information Technology (M.S. in MIT)
• Master of Information Technology (M.I.T.)
