New Delhi: Master of Computer Application (MCA) will henceforth be a two-year programme, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) announced on Tuesday.

So far, the degree programme was of three years' duration.

The AICTE has also asked all higher education institutions to make necessary modifications in the course duration of the program.

"Henceforth, the MCA course shall be of 2 Years duration from 2020-21. In view of the above, necessary modification in the course duration of the MCA program may please be made in conformity with the UGC decision and provisions contained in AICTE APH (Approval Process Handbook)," the council said in official order.

In December last year, the University Grants Commission (UGC) had approved a proposal for reducing the duration of the MCA program to two years, like all other masters programs approved by the apex higher education regulator, following demands from several quarters.
