IBM and leading Universities giving a cutting edge approach to meritocracy in Computer Science education.

Friday - May 12, 2017 10:26 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

Despite the proliferation of Engineering Colleges in India since last decade, the need for competent and skilled engineers continues due to gap in academic curriculum and industry requirements. This gap is evident in the dynamic and ever changing field of Computer Science and Information Technology.

In this fast changing world, newer skills are becoming mission critical for the success of organizations. Talent aligned to newer realities is in short supply, creating a barrier for growth. Industry today needs specialists in newer skill sets who can analyze the vast amount of data – utilizing the current advancement in technology & tools – generated out of social networks and mobile devices, and put this information to quick and critical use towards shaping an organization’s strategy and success. IBM Innovation Center for Education is offering program engagement models for students in university’s and engineering colleges. IBM together with the leading Universities the world over have on offer a series of B. Tech. CSE/IT programs, under the IBM Innovation Center for Education program (IBM ICE program).

In India, IBM has collaborated with People’s University, Bhopal and also other universities like UPES,  Galgotias University, Hindustan University, Manav Rachna University  to run 4 year B.Tech (CS/IT) with specialization in Cloud Computing & Virtualization Technologies / Business Analytics & Optimization / Open Source and Open Standards Technologies / Mainframe Technology / Cyber Security and Forensic Science and other fields. The basis of this collaborative programme is to make IBM a participant in academia and develop trained manpower not only for IBM but also for related industry so that the gap between demand and supply of competent graduates is fulfilled.

According to NASSCOM Strategic Review 2015 “ IT Industry revenues (including e-commerce) was estimated to grow by 13% in FY2015, to aggregate USD 146 Billion ; IT Industry is   adding more than 2,30,000 employees in FY15; focus on skill over scale, embedded non-linearity – 7% employee growth corresponding to 13% revenue growth”. This was also the reason that most of IIT-JEE toppers preferred the branches of CS/IT in 2015 and 2016 and the same is expected in 2017.
