Computer Science and its applications are now pervasive in our daily lives. Ranging from ATM withdrawals to sharing your special moments with friends on the social media, computers have now become an intrinsic part of our routine. It is needless to mention that computer science and its applications, particularly the Information Technology/Information Technology Enabled Services are the trendsetters in the job market, providing huge employment scope to the youth.
Inspiria Knowledge Campus understands the need of the hour and strives to enforce its students enrolled in BCA with all that is necessary to make their marks in the field of computer science but, with a difference. To facilitate the students to the best of practices in the field, the institute has state-of-the-art computing labs with high configuration machines and high-speed internet services on Wi-Fi as well as on wired LAN. The pedagogy is also significantly different from any other similar institutes. The salient features that keeps us a hand above the rest are as follows:
1. Student-centric approach:
Each student has his/her own requirement for better learning. Some learn fast while others take time. The experienced faculty members of the Department of Computer Applications believe that every student needs individual care and attention for having a successful academic experience. The students are encouraged to have one to one tutorials with the subject teachers outside the class hours so that they can upgrade themselves adequately and also clarify any topic that they find difficult to learn.
2. Knowledge of the state of the art:
As computer science is an extremely fast changing area of application, it becomes important for the students to keep abreast of the contemporary technological advances. The students of BCA are regularly updated with the recent technologies in the field of Computers by the faculty members as a value addition to the existing curriculum. They are also encouraged and motivated to engage in seminars on recent advances of the subject domain which helps to broaden their knowledge. The students are also taken to high-tech facilities in premier institutes and industry to give them a live boost of technological exposure. A recent students’ visit to the supercomputing facility at IIT, Guwahati was undertaken as a part of the endeavour.

3. Industry interactions:
The Dept. of Computer Applications at Inspiria makes sure that the students get to know the best of the industry and its requirements so that they find it easy to give a kick start to their careers. Industry experts have conducted workshops on relevant recent trends like cyber security and ethical hacking with an overwhelming response.
4. Career guidance:
The experienced faculty members regularly enlighten and help the students to choose the right career path after they pass out BCA successfully. Regular individual, as well as casual counselling sessions, detailed explanation of the scopes of employment in the industry and academics, are some of the activities that the department incorporates into the pedagogical practices to bring the best out of the students and make them future ready.
5. Live Projects and Hands-on Training:
The department believes that it is important that theory knowledge and practical experience should go hand in hand for shaping a perfect, future ready student. To realise this mantra, every student in the department is endowed with the responsibility of completing hands-on projects related to real-life applications of the concepts they learn in the curriculum. This enables them to have a better and firm grip over the subject as a whole and also helps them learn many features of software designing, web development making learning a fun experience. They are also motivated to take up live projects that will enable them to gain live industry experience being a student, enable them to relate well with the subjects taught and also give them a taste of success, thereby motivating them to aspire higher in life.
