In the current era of globalization, India is looked upon as a country with a great potential for cutting edge developments in the field of Information Technology. Most of the multinational companies with global operations are either outsourcing their software development jobs to India or establishing their IT hubs in India. The Indian corporations are rapidly growing and many of them are becoming Indian Multinationals and they are required to deploy the same kind of IT services on a global scale. Apart from this, a great scope for development and deployment of computerized systems exists within our country for carrying public services to the billion plus population in order to improve the quality of governance and of civic services.

Thus the current scenario of Industrial and governmental developments in the country provide an ever growing need for highly trained manpower in the fields of Computer Applications, software Engineering, Networking, Web-based programming and many other front line areas in Computer Science and Engineering. This generates ample and varied opportunities for the Computer professionals to contribute and grow professionally. The Smt. Chandaben Mohanbhai Patel Institute of Computer Applications is fully committed to participate in this huge manpower development effort of the Country. Students are invited to grab this opportunity and look forward to an enriching career ahead.

A word of caution may not be out of place at this stage, that in this highly professional discipline, the law most crucially followed is "The Survival of the Fittest". Just getting a degree is not enough; one has to keep pace with the latest developments in the field throughout the career. The rate of obsolescence in this field is so high that without keeping in touch with the current literature in the form of books, journals, and periodicals, it may be difficult to survive in the competition. We, at CMPICA, help the students to meet these challenges by providing them world class infrastructure, excellent Library facilities, latest hardware and software facilities and training by experienced and enthusiastic faculty members along with excellent working professionals as visiting faculties. The students will be encouraged to develop proper attitudes, working habits and a habit of striving for excelling in the profession.

While achieving our goals, we should not forget our moral values, concern regarding the common people, importance of tolerance and coexistence, which are the quintessential Indian traditions. We at Changa campus emphasize on these aspects of the Students's personality.

We appeal to all of you to join us in our mission and to march towards a bright future in the light of our vision.
