computer science professionals can showcase their talent and work as System Integrator, System
Analyst among many other job profiles. The average entry level salary for B.Sc. Computer Science
graduates ranges from INR 10,000 to 15,000 per month.
B.Sc. (Computer Science): What is it About?
B.Sc. Computer Science is the study of principles and fundamentals of computers, where latest
technologies and trends are the most important topics. The course empower students to deal with the
technicalities and issues with authorized knowledge of databases and analytical skills.
The course equips students to work as Software Engineers in renowned IT companies that offer them a
decent salary that increases with experience and expertise.It is concerned with understanding,
designing, execution and solving issues related to computer systems and applications.
B.Sc. Computer Science educate students with computing methods that have their roots in concepts of
mathematics and logics. The course imparts knowledge about programming and database
requisitions.HTML programming and Object Oriented programming is what students are taught for
tackling problems prevailing in Software Industry. Students also learn to develop competence in process
and product standards.
Students can go for MBA IT,MCA, M.Sc. Computer Science after completing B.Sc. Computer Science,
which can be highly beneficial for them as they can aim for better job placements.
B.Sc. (Computer Science): Eligibility
For seeking admission in B.Sc. Computer Science, the student must have cleared higher secondary
grade (10+2) from a recognized board.
For lateral entry, some colleges like Annamalai University offer admission to 2nd year of the program,
for which the student must have minimum 75% marks in the previous year of program in the same
discipline or 3 year diploma in technical field after 10th standard.
B.Sc. (Computer Science): Admission Process-
Most Universities grant merit-based admission to the B.Sc. Computer Science program. The application
forms are made available in the months of May and June. In the application forms, students mark their
preference for Computer Science. Universities then declare a cut-off list. Students who fulfill the cut-off
are eligible for the admission in that particular university.
Universities such as Banaras Hindu University conduct Undergraduate Entrance Test (BHU-UET) for
admission to their honors program in Computer Science. The syllabus for entrance test covers topics
from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There are a total of 150 question, i.e., 50 questions from
each topic. The questions are of 10+2 level.
For universities which have provision for merit-based admission, the selection criteria is fulfillment of the
cut off percentage. For universities which grant admission on the basis of entrance examination, about
60% weightage is given to marks scored in entrance exam and 40% weightage is given to marks scored
