Though basically, there exists some difference in the cirriculam and the pattern of teaching, but in terms of recognition of these qualification, these are treated at par.
Completion of a BE degree takes four year after passing 10+2, but practically to achieve a M.Sc degree in computer- science would take five years after 10+2 stage. This is because a candidate adopts an alternative rout where one studies B.Sc computer - science for three years and rest two years are utilised for completion for the post - graduation course in computers. In fact, the later qualification deals with the basic approach of the computers thereby making an aspirant sound in the theory but in the former qualification, much stress is given on the practical field.
For all practical purpose, in terms of employment, no differentiation has been made among the qualifications like BE, MCA and M.Sc in computer - science. All are treated equally in terms of values.
Hence, you can apply for a job where the qualification for BE is sought unless it is specifically mentioned in the advertisement.
