Please what is the difference between bsc computer science and bca computer application?and which one is acceptable in IT industry?and want to know each syllabus of the two courses..

Both BCA and B.sc have same degree value and importance. It's not that one is better than the others; it's just that they are different.

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science emphasizes the mathematics and theory behind computers, and is a little more general. The main objective of this course is to prepare students for higher education.

Bachelor of Computer Applications focuses more on applied computer principles and programming. It provides a diversified knowledge about applications like C++, financial accounting and management, operation management

Following are some good companies where you can apply after completing one of above courses:

HCL Technologies
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)
CMC Limited
International Business Machine (IBM) India
Wipro Limited
Oracle India
Infosys Technologies Limited
Mahindra Satyam
PCS (with stake from iGate) Technology Limited
Larsen & Toubro Infotech (L and T Ltd)
Mastek Limited
UST Global
L&T Infotech
IBM India
Patni Computer Systems
i-flex Solutions

B.Sc. Computer Science mainly focuses on the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing but BCA course focus on various areas of programming, computer science, database design, networks and information systems, software engineering. B.Sc Computer Science course is academic course and BCA is IT professional course that why BCA course candidate have good opportunity.

B.Sc (Computer Science)

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and theoretical foundations of computing, rather than teaching specific technologies that may quickly become outdated.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

10+ 2 Pass in Science stream with Physics, Chemistry & Maths.

Education after B.Sc:

M.Sc, (provided that its recognised by the UGC or AIU) followed by an M.Tech, or an MCA are options open to you after your B.Sc in Computer Science. An M.Tech may be available to you after you sit for the GATE conducted by the IITs or the entrance examinations of individual universities offering the course.

Jobs after B.Sc:

Students will usually go immediately for higher education after B.Sc, but jobs do exist; they can take on positions as software professionals (testers and developers) in IT companies.

Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA)

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. BCA can also be pursued via distance learning

computer science,
database design,
software engineering,
and information systems

Eligibility Criteria:
50+% at HSC with a Maths background + an entrance test.

Education after BCA:
MCA and M.Tech are usually the popular options. MBA, MSc, PGDCA are other options.

Jobs after BCA:
Software related jobs in testing and developing are common options made available to you.
