Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting, and business reengineering services and solutions, has designed a new digital transformation course approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). The Indian multinational technology company has partnered with Jawaharlal Nehru Engineering College (JNEC), under Mahatma Gandhi Mission (MGM) University, to roll out a two-year post graduate program in the academic year 2021.
According to an official statement released by Tech Mahindra, the custom curated curriculum is aimed at addressing the industry-academia skill gap in new-age technologies including digitalization, mobility, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, among others.
Tech Mahindra’s research and development arm, Makers Lab will be working closely with JNEC on reviewing the format of the course and helping them to create an environment of learning and innovation. As part of this course, students will be trained to work with dynamic, diverse, and agile teams to find solutions that will benefit people, society, and industry. This interdisciplinary course is aimed at providing holistic training to the students by imparting skills in competencies around digital transformation and technologies and cultivating an environment of entrepreneurship and design-led thinking.
“Digitalization is fundamentally changing the way organizations engage with both, their customers and their workforce. As part of our TechMNxt charter, we are investing heavily in reskilling our employees in next generation digital technologies. The inter-disciplinary course gives students an opportunity to look beyond existing expertise and discover how digital transformation is re-shaping the businesses of the future. Through this one-of-its-kind course, we aim to collaborate and co-create digital-warriors and nurture their talents and bridge the skill-gap,” said Nikhil Malhotra, Global Head of Makers Lab, Tech Mahindra, in a statement released to media and analysts.
The course is based on four main pillars: offering software engineering with relevant processes, methods, and tools to upskill students in new-age technologies; helping students hone their skills in designing and applying digital systems; involving people as co-producers by focusing on user-centered development processes; and equipping students in transversal skills with special emphasis on project work and hands-on training, which accredit students with relevant competencies for job market and a progressive attitude.
As part of its TechMNxt charter, Tech Mahindra is betting big on next-gen technologies to solve real business problems of the customers by delivering innovative solutions and services. Industry programs like these are a welcome move and are expected to play a crucial role in developing digital talent for the future.
