In keeping with its tradition of exposing younger generations to modern sciences and technology, the University of Delhi was the first in India to introduce the three year post-graduate course "Master of Computer Applications," beginning in the 1982 academic year. After more than two decades, more than 700 alumni hold important positions in the computer industry in India and abroad. More than 4,000 students compete for admission for the 30 openings available each year. DUMCA has a record of 100% placement over 25 years.
The broad objectives of the course are to provide the necessary theoretical background and practical experience to enable a student to develop science and engineering computer applications. The last semester is devoted to a professional training project in the industry.
