HCL to Impart IT Skills to Delhi Students

by CXOtoday Staff    Jul 22, 2009

Delhi University has entered into a tie-up with HCL Infosystems for imparting ICT training to its students.

This initiative is aimed at creating a new generation of highly-skilled IT professionals who possess the industry perspective and practical understanding to become employable and productive.

HCL will offer six-month duration programs in Linux with Convergence Technologies Innovation (LCTI), Web Development Using PHP (WDPHP) and Web Designing (WD).

Despite the rapid mushrooming of IT institutes, industry-ready trained manpower is still in short supply. HCL courses have been designed to transform young students into industry-ready professionals, who are ready to take on ICT industry responsibilities without the need for any further training on the job, said George Paul, EVP, HCL Infosystems.

HCL has set up alliances with leading IT corporations such as IBM, Microsoft, Red Hat and Oracle in order to help in creating the curriculum as well as adopting global best practices in IT.

These courses, which we will offer, are designed keeping in view the fast-changing ICT industry manpower requirements due to emerging migration to Open Source technologies and unprecedented growth of Internet, said Paul.
