Bachelor of Computer Application(BCA) was started in the year 2008 with an intake of 60 students. The program is affiliated to Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (formerly known as WBUT). Since its inception in 2007 it has produced several batches of young, trained and talented individuals who have made their mark in software industries like Tata Consultancy Services(TCS), Wipro, Cognizant(CTS), Infosys, ITC Infotech, BiskFarm, WBSEB and many more. The combination of competent and vibrant faculty members, modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art technical resources give an edge to the young technocrats. Dedicated Labs, equipped Library, Technical and Communication skills grooming along with regular industry exposure and interaction with various disciplines of GNIT are important value additions.
