Chandigarh, July 26: SVKM’s NMIMS School of Technology Management and Engineering (STME) has announced the introduction of two new-age programs in Computer Engineering; and Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science) at its Chandigarh campus. The programs are designed to keep students abreast with the fast-changing industrial operations deep-rooted in technology.
The comprehensive four-year B Tech program in Computer Engineering has a unique curriculum to help students gain expertise in modern engineering practices and disruptive technologies. The curriculum follows international standards that include a balance of mathematics, basic sciences, humanities, and computer engineering.
The B Tech in Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science), also a four-year undergraduate program, constitutes a good blend of Engineering, Mathematics, Analytics Management, and general education related to modern skillsets of Data Science.
Approved by the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), the two B Tech programs are specifically designed to create career and entrepreneurial opportunities for the youth in Punjab, Haryana, and surrounding areas.
The programs also offer industry internships, and industry-based project works to facilitate students in the form of job offers or further studies and research.
Speaking on the launch of the new programs, Dr. Sharad Mhaiskar, Pro-vice-chancellor, SVKM’s NMIMS, says, “With an increasing number of top tech companies finding roots in Punjab and Haryana, requirement for youth with future-ready technical skill is seeing a major uptrend. As per reports, there was a nearly 50 percent increase in the number of data science jobs in the country in the past year, and this is likely to grow in the future with 11.5 million more openings by 2026. NMIMS, which has made a name for delivering holistic education and create a sustainable society, has recognised the urgent need to bring in programs to meet this demand and prepare aspiring engineers in Punjab and Haryana for expanding career opportunities.”
Dr. Alka Mahajan, Dean, Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering, added, “Computer technology and digitization are present in every aspect of society today, which in turn has resulted in a tremendous increase in digital data around the world. The need of the hour is to develop widely skilled data and computer scientists alongside managerial skills with a global perspective. The Computer Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science) programs include a comprehensive and contemporary curriculum to equip youngsters with these very skills. We believe, with the right mix of academia and infrastructure, as that will be provided by STME, Punjab and Haryana can be the hub for new-age engineers sought by global companies.”
