Hi Sartaj,

A Bachelor of Science in Computer Science emphasizes the mathematics and theory behind computers, and is a little more general. You'd probably be required to pick a more specific focus in that field.

By B.C.A., are you referring to a Bachelor of Computer Applications? If so, it sounds like that focuses more on applied computer principles and programming.

I'm attaching the Wikipedia entries for the two degrees:

Hi,
A science student can go for B. Sc in computer science whereas either a science or commerce student can go for BCA. In today's date both these candidates are well required and both of them expertise themselves in their own way in that field.

The B.Sc (CS) course mainly focuses on the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing, rather than teaching specific technologies that may quickly become outdated. The course prepares you for higher education. Another thing to consider when comparing BCA & B.Sc Computer Science is that BCA is more professionally oriented; it prepares you for post-graduate or research work and also creates professional manpower for problem solving through application of computer science at the interface of business and technology.
