About the department

MCA has been set up with sound fundamentals and foundations. The dedicated services of the Department to the community for more than a decade has nurtured numerous IT professionals. Master of computer applications was started at KLS Gogte Institute Technology, Belgaum in the year 1999 to meet growing demand of industries for personnel specialized in the fields of computers and its applications. The department has made a respectable recognition among the Institutes offering similar course. A glance through the alumnus indicates that, most of them are either well placed in the reputed firms or in reputed Institutions in India as well as abroad. The specialty of this department is that, all the faculty members are master degree holders from reputed Institutes with many years of teaching experience. Some of them have spent few years in the blue chip companies, which gives a broader and realistic perspective in teaching-learning process.  Students carry out their VI Semester projects in reputed IT Industries like Infosys, IBM, Wipro, and Mind Tree, TCS, PSPL, Wipro etc. The Departmental Library provide students with access to a vast repository of resources, including books and periodicals.  During examinations it is open for 24 hours. In addition to this, faculty members dynamically upload all their lecture and question banks on the GIT Intranet for students. The Departmental Library stocks over 3000 volumes and subscribes to 13 reputed journals and periodicals in computer science and engineering related areas, as well in the area of computer applications, including journals like IEEE and ACM. Ms. Janhavi Madhav Belgaumkar has made her institute proud by securing three gold medals for having secured highest marks with first rank in Master of Computer Applications to Visvesvaraya Technological University. She was awarded by R. N. Shetty Gold Medal, Jain University Gold Medal and VTU Gold Medal during 9th VTU Annual Convocation. Our students have an outstanding talent and ability, which is manifested in their achievements at all levels. Several of our students have won prizes and appreciation in Technical Paper Contest, Skill Tests, Sports held at other engineering colleges.Our students also take up industry sponsored project and have successfully completed the projects offered by IBM, Infosys, Wipro, Mindtree, Tata Consultancy Services to name a few.
