About the Department

Department of Computer Applications is devoted to study and research. It runs MCA (under Autonomy) under MAKAUT. The combination of competent and vibrant faculty members, modern infrastructure and technical resources give an edge to the young technocrats. The department has produced several batches of young, trained and talented individuals who have made their mark in software industries like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Wipro, Cognizant (CTS), Infosys, ITC InfoTech, Capgemini, BiskFarm, WBSEB and many more.

HOD's Message

Welcome to the Department of Computer Applications, Guru Nanak Institute of Technology.It gives me pride and pleasure to introduce you all to the Department of Computer Applications and I hope you will enjoy exploring yourself being a part of the department. The Department of Computer Applications is one of the pioneering departments of our Institution that offer BCA and MCA courses.  A career in Computer Science has been proved to be highly lucrative and rewarding. With the expansion of software industry in India and abroad, the demands for trained professionals have increased considerably. Our department has shown a successful trend in developing master minds in this field.

The Department of Computer Applications is committed to excellence in teaching, research and inculcating a sense of pride and confidence in the students.  Our objective is to empower the students with latest technical knowledge and skills in the field of Computer Applications by providing the best teaching facilities, state of the art laboratories and an excellent research and development environment. The mission is also to provide professional grooming and guidance so that the students can become successful professionals and inspiring individuals.

The Department assigns a Mentor for each Semester. The mentor acts as a guide for the students as well as takes care of their regular academic performance and other related issues. The guardians can contact the respective mentors to discuss the progress of their children.
