Bachelor of Computer Science

Duration : 3 – 4 Years
Level : Graduation
Type : Degree
Eligibility : A/L or NVQ4

B.C.S. or Bachelor of Computer Science is an undergraduate Computer Science course which
Provides education related to Computer Science. Computer Science is an engineering science
which studies the principles and use of computers. Certain institutes provide the course with
different nomenclature, some of them are – B.Sc. (Computer Science), (B.Sc. CS), B.Sc. (Comp.
Sci.) and B.S. (Computer Science). There are minor differences amongst these which are related
to coverage given to certain subjects or topics. The more popular abbreviation for Bachelor of
Computer Science are the first two one’s. The duration of Bachelor of Computer Science is 3
years with a number of Semesters which are generally 6 in number, 2 terms per year. The course
curriculum includes Theory Papers and Laboratory Practical’s based on mathematical and
theoretical foundations of computing. Conventionally B.C.S. stands for Bachelor of Computer
Science and is of 3 Years Duration. However, B.C.S. offered by Continental Institute for
International Studies stands for Bachelor of Computing Science. It is a 4 Year co-operative
education program designed to meet Global standards with 8 Academic and 4 Work Terms. The
conventional BCS course can also be pursued via correspondence or distance mode of education,
though the nomenclature of the course may not be the same. Those who complete the course are
generally referred as Computer Scientists as their work may involve application theory;
development of specialized languages and information technologies; and design of knowledge-
based systems, programming tools, or computer games.

B.C.S. Eligibility

 A/L or its equivalent examination with Physics, Chemistry, Physics and English. Those
who have 3 years Diploma Course after S.S.C. or Intermediate Commerce or Arts
Examination are also eligible.
 Some Institutes require only A/L 3 pass with any subjects.
 Some Institutes may conduct entrance examinations as well.

B.C.S. Course Suitability

 The course is especially meant for students looking for a career in computers.
Candidates, who love to fiddle with computers and who like to have an in-depth study of
all aspects of a computers and computing are the appropriate one's to pursue this course.
How is Bachelor of Computer Science Course Beneficial?

 Students can pursue further studies in M.Sc. (Comp. Science) or M.C.A.(Sci.), M.C.A.,
M.C.M., M.B.A. and follow it up by research or take up jobs as trainee programmers
with a bright future ahead. A Bachelor of Computer Science degree is normally required
in order to work in the field of software development.
