Mangaluru, July 9: Thanks to Covid many changes have been seen in the education sector. The demand for computer science courses has grown significantly in the coastal districts. In BE, UG and PG students also showed more relevance to computer science.
As work from home is possible in computer science, many students are interested in it. In addition, the software sector is also showing remarkable growth.
According to Dr Alwyn D’Sa, registrar of St Aloysius College, from the past two years BCA courses have been in high demand. Last year they had 160 seats and we received over 600 applications. This year, we have more intakes for BCA. We received 700 applications for 240 seats.
According to industry experts and college chiefs, many opportunities in this sector are causing the rise in demand. After Covid, there was a shortage of manpower. IT professionals are in need in India and abroad. Those working in IT companies are safer during Covid.
The American market created more than two million jobs after Covid. IT companies usually prefer Indians. Candidates also demanded good salary packages.
Prof Shashirekha, HOD of computer science at the university of Mangalore says, “The ups and downs are part and parcel of the software sector. But there is no end to it. Continuity, upgrading and advancement is the specialty of this field. Those who have graduated from BSc, BCom are also applying for MCA. We have 30 intakes. After we increased the duration of MCA to two years, we have more students. ”
