At Jagan Institute of Management Studies, faculty is chosen with great care keeping in mind the diversity of the programme. Ample computer time is made available to the students in the well-equipped computer labs to do practical work. In the fourth semester, every group of two/three students is assigned to carry out independent study on a topic of current interest. Students are asked to write a term paper on this independent study. Last year, at JIMS, we had an in-house competition based on presentations given by students on independent studies. This encourages students to build-up confidence in self study and analysis of new technologies.
Some of the distinguishing features of MCA programme at JIMS are Colloquium Series and Summer Projects. JIMS had also launched a new project "Young Technology Awards", where innovative software projects, design concepts or research papers related to IT area are assessed by an eminent panel of judges and cash prizes and trophies are awarded to winning teams.
