In order to enhance the programming skills of the young IT professionals, the Department has introduced the concept of project development in each language/technology learnt during each semester. We also conduct regular PDP Programs which help the students to develop a comprehensive personality.
Department of Computer Application believes in ‘Learning with Fun’. Therefore, it has a number of clubs which frequently conduct activities to give students a break from the monotony of class room learning and continue learning with fun. These clubs are supervised by faculty but for the organization of activities the students take the lead. This develops the organization and team-work skills of the students. To mention a few clubs we have:
Codex Club – This club organizes programming-based competitions to generate both the logical and programming abilities of the students.
