The world is ruled by technology. We are so dependent on technology to such an extent that it is impossible to imagine our daily tasks without technology. Technology has created a number of opportunities in the fields of computers and technology. The students today are racing towards building careers in computer science due to the opportunities that are thrown at them from the technology field.

Having trouble choosing your desirable course ?
More and more students are choosing computer-related fields as their field of study in their degrees, for better career opportunities and better career growth.
There are two types of technical degrees in the field of computers, the students have two choices, They are:
Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA)
B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering
Bachelor of Computer Science (BCA)
The BCA - Bachelor of Computer Application is the 3-years undergraduate course and can be a best alternative degree for BE/B.Tech
The BCA students will be studying almost all the subjects of BE/B.Tech Computer Science study
The BCA is the new age course that is chosen by many students as the career growth is better when compared with other courses and has relatively less competition when compared to engineering
The BCA course has also spread into numerous specializations according to the industrial requirements and the students have the option to choose their required specializations in the BCA programme.
Some of the popular specializations available in the BCA course are:
BCA Data Analytics
BCA Game Software and Mobile application development
BCA Intelligent Process Automation
BCA Cloud Computing and Cyber Security
BCA IoT (internet of things)
BCA Artificial Intelligence
BCA Cloud Computing
BCA Cognitive System
BCA Mobile Application and information Security
BCA Mobile Application and Cloud Technology
BCA Cloud Technology and Information Security
B.Tech/BE Computer Science and Engineering
The B.Tech/BE Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is a 4-years undergraduate course, that is divided into 8 semesters
The B.Tech Computer Science course aims to give the practical and theoretical knowledge of computer hardware and software
The B.Tech Computer Science course is the comprehensive study of computer application and system
The course deals with the designing and developing computer software and hardware processes
The course imparts detailed understanding of the programming languages, digital and analogue electronics, networking and telecommunication, etc
The course trains the students on various skills and expertise in computer software and hardware areas
The B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering course is divided into different specialisations they are:
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering (Cyber security)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering (IoT)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering (Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering (Block Chain)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Engineering (Data Analytics)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering-Cloud Technology and Mobile Application
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering-Cloud Technology and Information Science
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering-Mathematics and Computing
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Engineering-Robotic Process Automation
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Technology
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Technology (DevOps)
B.Tech /B.E Computer Science and Technology (Big Data)
The students who have completed their PUC or 10+2 with 50% aggregate in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Electronics & Statistics from recognised board are eligible to apply for BCA
The students who have completed their PUC or 10+2 with 50% aggregate in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, Electronics & Statistics from recognised board are eligible to apply for B.Tech
The students are required to appear for entrance exams like KCET, COMED-K, JEE and participate in counselling process for seat allotments processes.
Difference between BCA and B.Tech Courses
The BCA course imparts the detailed knowledge and understanding of Computer Applications
The B.Tech Computer Science course basically trains the students about computer engineering
The BCA students will be studying a detailed knowledge about scripting and coding languages like C, C++, C#, Java, Python, SQL, HTML, PHP, etc
The B.Tech computer science engineering students will be trained in both software and hardware of the computers along with the coding languages
The BCA course makes you to adapt at the application level of computers
The B.Tech Computer Science course makes the students proficient at the technical level like software, hardware, applications, etc
The BCA course deals with the study of software language and software management quality
The B.Tech course is more about comprehensive and professionally valued course as gives a detailed understanding of more subjects when compared to BCA
The BCA course deals with the theoretical and practical approaches of computer applications
The B.Tech course basically deals with practical approach to the computer science topics
The BCA course mainly stresses more on the application level at both theoretical and practical level when it comes to computer softwares
The B.Tech course generally deals with practical testing and development and not about the application part
BCA Vs B.Tech Computer Science Career Prospects
In both the cases there are a good number of careers available for students and the BCA students can join as junior developers in the companies for decent salary packages. The B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering students can join as software engineers, test engineers, database engineers, solution architects, etc
Although many BCA candidates prefer to join MCA, further, the competition is less in BCA when compared to B.Tech Computer Science and engineering students.
The B.Tech students are technically proficient; they can have a wide scope of job opportunities in India and abroad. They can join M.Tech courses.
The career opportunities for B.Tech engineering students are basically based on their skill set rather than theoretical study. While the career opportunities for BCA students are about both theoretical and practical study.
Both the courses of B.Tech and BCA have equal opportunities in the job markets. It only matters what the degree a student will have and is he/she capable and skilled to do the given task when it comes to the hiring processes. The organisations look for only the skill and knowledge of the students over the degree that they have in their pockets.
