About our program

In this fast-changing world, new skills are becoming mission-critical for the success of organizations. Talent aligned to today’s technological realities is in short supply, creating a barrier for growth. Industries need specialists in newer skill sets who can analyze the vast amount of data being generated and utilize this information to shape an organization’s strategy and success.

The IBM Innovation Center for Education is offering three program engagement models for students in universities and engineering colleges. Together with leading universities the world over, it is putting forward a series of Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) or Information Technology (IT) programs, as well as MBA programs.

The program offerings are industry-aligned and the courseware has been redesigned from the ground up, with a state-of-the-art delivery mechanism to enable students to learn industry-relevant skills. This will impart outstanding industry-grade skills to our students and prepare them for any challenges in their exciting careers ahead. The online platform brings industry and academia together by providing interaction opportunities between industry professionals and students. Participating students get to increase their industry orientation through interactive use of the platform.

It is a whole new way of thinking, and a cutting-edge approach to technology training.
