Equivalent but often varied undergraduate programmes are available in computer science in various Universities of India with different names, viz.,

        • Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) Computer Science
        • Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA)
        • B.A Computer Science
        • B.Com with Computer Science
        • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) (Computer Science)
        • Bachelors degree in Information Systems
        • Bachelors Degree in Information Technology
        • Bachelors in Applied Science (Computer Science) Many universities are now offering advanced honours degrees in Computer science. In every programme there are some uniform curriculum requirements, some specific modules that differentiate each course and then there are variety of modules as per the local requirements. The most common subjects studied in every computer Bachelors programmes are:
      • Computer Programming
      • Algorithms
      • Data Structures
      • Logical computing
      • Computer architecture
      • Statistical methods
      • Operating Systems
      • Information/System Security
      • Graphics
      • Artificial Intelligence
      • Software Testing
      • Information ManagementB.Sc Computer Science teaches the theoretical and mathematical foundations of computing and prepares students for higher studies and research in the science of computers. It is more an academic discipline rather than a professional one like BCA. Employment prospects of B.Sc Computer Science is equally good in the present day industrial scenario.

However, prospects of salary for B.Sc Computer Science graduates depends to a large extent on your job description and employer. It is also depends on the number and quality of skill you hold, ability to understand and solve complex problems and ability to think out-of-the-box. The curriculum of B.Sc. Computer Science is theoretical and academic rather than professional. You can always go for higher studies in management, computer science or any other field after doing his graduate level course. It will enhance their employability. However, this graduation course in computer science is sufficient in itself, and many IT companies immediately hire the candidates after its completion.
