There will be no more Bachelor of Computer Science courses in Lucknow University and its affiliated colleges from next academic session.
This has been decided by the Computer Science department and it has already shut the course, so there will be no more admission in this course from next session.
The academic council has already given permission for this but they didn't mention 'colleges' that is why there was confusion between University and affiliated colleges.
Students who are currently part of this course will not be affected by the decision and will get a degree once they complete their 3-year course.
