Best Practices

1. As the department of Computer Applications we have tried to impart some basic skill development for the students of the college. To this effect, we have introduced a certificate course in learning the fundamentals of computer and internet. Now students can avail this program for a minimal fee and get familiarised in this subject. This removes a barrier for a lot of students who wants to learn about computers but are of a different course or they never have had an opportunity.

2. The department also realised the need to inculcate competitiveness in the students, if they are to ready themselves for any kind of entrance exams. We conducted two current affairs Quiz competitions, and the presence of many students from various departments attests the need for conducting more such competitions.
