The BCA distance learning Program:
The UGC-approved syllabus of BCA through distance education, is designed by veteran academicians in consultation with industry experts and specialists. It is constantly updated to reflect changing industry needs.
BCA correspondence course is ideal for those interested in Computer Science. In fact, BCA distance education in India, is said to be an alternative to the traditional Engineering in Computer Science program. The course covers subjects like computer networks, programming languages, database management, multimedia, operating systems and so on.
As BCA is a technical field, it helps to have a technical background apart from the ability to adapt to changing working environment. Your work may involve developing new software to ease the operations of the company, testing new software, integrating new software with the existing systems, and supporting, maintaining as well as documenting software functionality.
After completing BCA through distance education, you can opt for a post graduate course (MCA) in the same subject. BCA distance learning offers several well-paying jobs in the form of Software Tester, Project Manager, Software Architect, Database Manager and so on. Alternately, you can also freelance or become an independent software developer or consultant.
