Government of India Initiative for Employability Enhancement
India is fast emerging as a world power in Information, Communications Technology and Electronics (ICTE) sectors. To complement its growth and further development, there is an ever-increasing need for trained professionals with specialization in this space. This include straining of professionals not only in existing and changing technologies but also in the fields of R&D and electronics manufacturing. This will specifically be aimed at the ICTE sector to create a substantial resource pool of talent and generate ample opportunities for entrepreneurs.Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) has approved a scheme and set up Electronics and ICT Academies at 07 (seven) institutions viz. IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, NIT Warangal, NIT Patna and IIITDM Jabalpur (all five under Category-A); and IIT Roorkee, MNIT Jaipur (both under Category B). The Ministry had earlier setup two ICT Academies at Tamil Nadu and Kerala respectively. Estimated cost and targets for the Electronics and ICT Academy in the two Categories for a period of four years are as under:These Academies are aimed at faculty/mentor development and upgradation to improve the employability of the graduates, diploma holders in various streams, through collaboration of States/Union Territories. Each Academy is being provided funding support for four years and is expected to generate revenue by charging fee and taking up other activities to meet the recurring cost in a gradual manner and become self-sustainable by the end of fourth year onwards. All these Academies will cater to the requirements of identified neighboring States and UTs also. Brief information about all the Academies is available at : About Summer Courses
Faculty Development Programmes in core areas of Electronics and Information & Communication Technology (ICT) streams have been planned by academies for delivery during Summer (i.e., May – July 2017). All these summer courses will be offered through National Knowledge Network (NKN) by inviting experts from IITs, NITs, IIITs and other premier institutes/industries. In addition, local course coordinators at respective academies will take care of practicals and practice sessions.
