Introduction to Computer Science

Computer Science is the academic discipline concerned with computing and development of computing software. The intellectual processes of this discipline combine theory, abstraction and design to develop software that can perform prescribed tasks. Computer Science is a very vast subject that has lots of applications in the modern world. The computer scientists design new software, solve computing and develop different ways to use technology.

In simple words Computer Science is the study of hardware, software, networking and all the processes that fall under the umbrella of giving life to a machine to enable it to perform complicated tasks and actions.

Few lines about B.Sc Computer Science

B.Sc Computer Science is a 3-year undergraduate programme that deals with the subjects and topics related to computer science, computer application and its services. The main aim of the course is to create quality professionals and research fellows who are capable to work in every sector of the world by implementing technology of computer systems and softwares.

Computer Science is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world right now. The course gives the students a holistic understanding of various tools and technologies that are required for development in the IT industry. The course gives the logical understanding of various computational skills and makes the students as skilled professionals.

Combinations of B.Sc Computer Science

Computer Science is typically studied along with triple combinations. Some of the important combinations are:

  • B.Sc Computer Science (Honours)
  • B.Sc Computer Science, Mathematics, Electronics
  • B.Sc Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science
  • B.Sc Psychology, Journalism, Computer Science
  • B.Sc Computer Science, Biotechnology, Biochemistry
  • B.Sc Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics

Eligibility for B.Sc Computer Science

The students who have finished their PUC or 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Electronics, Statistics from a recognised board are eligible to apply for B.Sc Computer Science course.

Admission Procedures

The students seeking admission to B.Sc Computer Science can take admission under two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and second one is Direct Admission.

1. Merit Based Admissions

There are many top institutes that conduct entrance exams for B.Sc Computer Science and students have to apply for merit seats through these institution-based entrance exams, such mode is called merit-based admission. The main aim of the entrance exam is to filter out the deserving candidates from the group of non-serious candidates, this is done because of availability of limited merit seats in colleges. Some colleges will allot the merit seats to the students on the basis of PUC or 12 th board marks.

2. Direct Admissions

The students can also take admission to B.Sc Computer Science through another mode called Direct Admissions. The students under direct admissions have special privileges where they are not required to attend for any entrance exams. The main advantage in this mode is that the students can get their seats booked in their desired colleges even before the admission process starts in college. The students interested in this mode of admission can contact the educational guidance centres for more details.
