Xebia ties up with JECRC University; enabling students in Rajasthan to become world-class technology experts
In its first tie-up in Rajasthan, Xebia Group through its education business Xebia Academy Global, has recently inked an MoU with JECRC University to offer specializations under the B.Tech Computer Science Engineering programme. This is a huge opportunity for students across Rajasthan who are keen to build careers in digital technologies. As part of this MoU, JECRC University will offer their B.Tech (CSE) programme with specializations in Cloud Engineering and DevOps, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Big Data and Analytics.
Mr. Brijesh Kohli, Director, Xebia Academy said, “The IT Talent pool is at a critical juncture today. In spite of many educational institutions, the gap between industry and academia continues to widen. The industry today faces an acute shortage of skilled manpower across digital technologies. Xebia aims to bridge the gap with their technology expertise and educational acumen.”
“Xebia believes in hands-on learning for all students so that they actually get schooled in what the core of the industry demands. We demonstrate our commitment to this by setting up dedicated Centres of Excellence for these technologies, providing industry researched curriculum, running student engagement and faculty development programs. The company will also help students to demonstrate their skills by offering technology relevant internships and placement opportunities”, Mr. Kohli further added.
Through this partnership, students will get access to Xebia’s knowledge repository and access to a global talent pool of industry practitioners and Xebia experts as mentors.
These specializations are incredibly future oriented and aim to build industry ready professionals up for grabs. The course structure is being designed by practitioners who have put in their real-time experiences in the form of use cases and case studies to ensure that the students learn the most of what is relevant today. The idea is to inculcate the right mindset, the right skill set and the right ethos that will enable the students to take on the world tomorrow.
Mr. Arpit Agarwal, JECRC said, “The acceleration in automation brings the promise of productivity, economic growth, increased efficiencies, safety and convenience. However, they also raise issues about the broader impact on jobs, skills, wages, and the nature of the work itself. And hence, it has become crucial for a student to be well-equipped with these technologies, before setting foot into the professional world. As a part of the education sector, we all are jubilant to gear up our students for the corporate sector, honing with the professional skills required by future employers. Indeed, with the support from Xebia, known for its expertise in new technologies, our students will become professionals who have the right skills to implement the innovation effectively.”
Xebia has already partnered with many such prestigious institutions across the country and takes pride in the fact that not only do they design the curriculum keeping the industry in mind, but also consider what academia needs. Xebia believes that true transformation can only happen when real problems plaguing real people are solved. Technology is a beautiful way to do that!
