All teaching on our postgraduate programmes is done within the Department's dedicated premises in the Gilbert Scott building. They are all close to programme and staff offices, so students have ready access to lecturing and support staff. The rooms were purpose built for MCA teaching, and include a lecture theatre and several large and small seminars and breakout rooms for group work and independent study. The rooms are all fitted with digital projectors and computers, to compliment modern teaching methods.
In today's learning environment, students need to keep pace with the latest developments in their fields of interest. The internet has opened immense opportunities for dissemination and gathering of information and knowledge. Above all, the ease, convenience and speed of the Internet is a boon to the student community to augment their classroom education with the latest information about subjects, at the click of a button!
At Vidhyanagari, we believe in a student-centric environment that is well-aligned with the students' aspirations and goals. For this reason, we have focused on providing the latest and the best facilities that will support them in pursuing their academic goals. We realize the importance of technology in harnessing knowledge. It is with this intention that we have set up a full-fledged MCA division with two fully equipped MCA Labs.
The MCA labs are located on the first and second floors and have high speed broad band connectivity enabling students to effectively browse and download relevant information.
Students can also access Live Campus from these MCA Labs at their convenience.
