Is Master of Computer Applications (MCA) equivalent to Bachelor of Engineering in Computer ?
How can a Master degree be equivalent to a Bachelor degree?
Dude seriously don't do MCA(6 years bachelors + masters) do BE(4 years) ,job opportunities for both the options are almost same, the two extra years you will waste doing MCA can be better utilized having job experience in the field and nothing beats that. I dont know why BE ppl are given much importance as MCA by the IT companies.but this is what happens.
I am doing MCA.last semester.

hey u can also use those extra two years for MBA...in future or after engg
tarey can u give more info on univ's and about MCA courses? I am keeping MCA as an option to MBA and will be appearing for MCA entrance exams this year.
Well, MCA is not equivalent to BE, it's a bit higher, but when it comes to job opertunities in IT sector MCA and BE is considered as equals. Some companies prefer BEs over MCAs.
There are a lot of MCA courses available in DElhi University. IMHO, BE is better than MCA. But AFAIK there is one advantage to BE, there is job security in almost all engineering colleges and very less in MCA providing ones.
The Companies need Professional qualification. That's all. So companies take candidates
with a B.E or MCA qualification. My advice is, put your best foot forward - ie.,
master the language like C++, C# or Java or whatever you are interested in.
The companies look for persons with excellent knowledge in his chosen field.
When I got my first job,I didn't have a B.E or MCA qualification!!!! I was just a
BSc Physics graduate. Actually I got the job because of my mastery in Java
language. I later did my post graduation in IT thro distance education.
@Jguru. I agree with you entirely. Even I am also a non-technical person who has learned IT through own efforts.
Yes even i have noticed that.
ya frnds if u r master in one of d demanded subjects(intense core knowledge),then employement is probably not a concern
