Creation of Employment in IT/ITES Sectors

The IT/ITES sector, over the last 5-10 years, has emerged as one of the major provider of employment opportunities to Engineering, MCA, MBA and graduates from the general streams. Not only engineering graduates from the IT, Computer Sciences and Electronics & Telecom but also an appreciable number of graduates from other branches of engineering like Electrical, Mechanical & Civil find jobs in the IT industry. 
  
The IF & ITP Cell is taking up the following activities in this connection

  • Assessments of the resident skills of those interested in the ITES sector and identify the gaps that need to be bridged to transform the students to the employable grade.

  • Develop and organize training programmes on a wider scale at an affordable cost through suitable training inputs through trainers/institutions with adequate exposure and experience in the area.
