MSc and MCA are two very different streams...you have a greater scope in MCA than MSc..in some cases..and MCA is basically technical oriented...

ggood luck !!

Hi Pradeep,
MCA and MSc computer science are quite similar as both are computer oriented courses. These two courses are different if you look at their syllabus. I would advice you to do MCA because MCA have much more scope and every company are after MCA.
thank you.

hi member'
MSc and MCA are diffrent oriented courses and MCA is having great future scope. An IT company will always prefer MCA student over Msc computer science. MCA is based on both theorytical as well as practical concepts. I would suggest you to opt for MCA

Good Luck

Hi,
The truth is that nowadays MCA is better than MSc , because IT companies are giving more chances and packages to MCA and BTech students rather than MSc students.

dear friend.
Msc computer science and MCA are different fields.
MCA is professional and application course.
Msc is general course.MCA is great future in the nowdays.
Any IT compaines prefer the MCA.
MCA is equal to the computer engineer.

From IT Industry Standpoint , it is ok if you have 4 years (B.E.) / 5 years (Bachelors 2 years Masters) / 6 years (Bachelors 3 years Masters) degree.

So they are looked on the same scale nowadays -- What matters most to IT Companies is acceptable Academic Degree with "Right Attitude" to get things done.

MCA is typically meant for non computer science background students (say. B.Sc. Physics, Stats etc.) who want to venture into "Computing" world -- That is why it takes 3 years to complete
MSc CS on the other hand is meant for computer science background students with 2 years to complete. But yes , some CS background students do go for MCA if they have not learnt the basics properly :-)

Also it all depends on University Syllabus , your line of interest and how well you can grasp & advance your understanding on "Computing Systems" be it through MSc or MCA .

If U Want to Get Placed in an IT industry ts Better to Do MCA.
If U Want to be a Professor or a Lecturer Both M.Sc Cs and MCA are Good, But After Completing M.Sc CS U Want to Proceed With M.Phil That Only Gives a Good Scope.
But Where as in MCA No Need for M.Phil, If U Need U Can.

All the Very Best.

In brief:
MCA vs MSc IT
%u2022 MCA and MSc IT are different post graduate courses in the field of computers and their applications in the industry.
%u2022 While MCA is a specialized course, MSc IT is broader in scope as students learn all about computers with an emphasis on using information for the benefit of businesses.
%u2022 MCA is restricted in the sense to the knowledge of the systems and their practical applications.

I think the answer is no.
MCA and Msc Both are Master degrees But MCA is totally based on Programing of Computer languages whereas MSc Computer Science have not all based on Programming ..Means it consists of Networking Hardware and then Programming so i don't think it is equal to MCA course.

MCA is equivalent to ME.

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

Bsc Computer Science (3 Yrs) MCA (3 Yrs) = 6 Yrs.

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

MCA and ME both are equal. Companies are giving equal priority to both MCA and ME.

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

MCA and ME degree holders are equal to each other.

Finally Confirmed:

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

Both are quite similar but if you want to do your higher studies then MCA is

the best option because you can get more and more knowledge about

computer field and programming languages.So its better option to choose

MCA.Both are equilent for companies but MCA is better as compare to MSC.

The choice is yours.Just go for it.


All the best

dear friend,

Both the two stream M.Sc (Computer Science) and MCA are good in their field.

1) If you want to go for mainly teaching line then M.Sc should be your first preference.

2) But if you want to go mainly for company job then choose MCA.

So, You have to choose between them according to your future planning.

Hello friend

The M.Sc in computer science is not equivalent to MCA course.

Both the courses are Master Degree courses and these two courses have a difference whereas MCA is related to the computer applications and M.Sc is related to science fields.

Most of the IT companies prefer the MCA candidates than the M.Sc candidates. So,it is better to do the MCA course.

All The Best

Thumbs up Re: Is MSc in Computer Science equivalent to MCA?

Hello Friend,

MSc stands for Master of Science and MCA stands for Master of Computer

Application as both are computer oriented fields if you want to go for in edu.

field then you should prefer MSc and if you want to join some jobs in private

companies then you should go for MCA.

Both are the master degrees.


Good Luck

I have done MCA, but in govt. Sector M.SC Computers have more salary than MCA. When I ask my Superior why am I getting less compare to others, they simply reply that MCA is not eligible for scientist whereas M.SC computer is eligible for scientist post . so , please think twice before choosing . better choose M.SC computers so that u can save one year time & save one year fees. I was given equivalent salary to graduation. If I had chosen M. SC Computers I have been treated equivalent to engineers .choose M.SC computers not MCA

Now both are almost the same. Previously MCA was 3yr. course. But now the Indian government made it only two years all over India. M.sc(cs) also two years. That's why you don't see much difference between them. Outside the world Master of Science is very well recognized because UK/US/Australia offers the Master of Science not MCA.
Coming to getting the job, it depends on experience and technical skills, communication skills, additional IT certificates, etc. You should not worry much if you have said job skills.
