    Dear Student,

    Institute of Engineering and Management (IEM), Kolkata does not offer the Master of Computer Applications (MCA) course.

    Also, being a psychology student, you would not be considered eligible for admission in MCA. A BCA degree is required for the same. You will have to look for courses in the same or similar field.

    You can take a look at the colleges offering Psychology in India. For any help with admissions, please fill the Common Application Form (CAF) or call our helpline number 18005729877.

    Thank you.
