    MCA is equivalent to ME (Computer Science and Engineering)

    MCA with B.Sc. (Computer Science) background is equivalent to ME (Computer Science and Engineering).

    B.Sc. Computer Science (3 Yrs) + MCA (3 Yrs) = 6 Years.

    BE Computer Science (4 Yrs) + ME (2Yrs) = 6 Years.

    MCA and ME both are equal.

    Companies are giving equal priority to both MCA and ME.

    Master of Computer Applications MCA and Master of Engineering ME Degree holders are Equal to each other.

    Both MCA and ME (Computer Science and Engineering) Professional Degree courses, the contents of theory and practical syllabus are Same.
