We align the college curriculum with the industry's requirements, and work with
educational bodies towards implementing it. We organize sem ina rs and training
sessions for the faculty to give them an industry perspective, enabling them to
train the students accordingly. We design industry-oriented topics, and provide
the courseware to students; we give them projects to do, and also provide
sabbaticals for the faculty. The Infosys courseware is published on our portal,
to be viewed by member colleges.
Some of our “trademark” programmes:
Foundation Programme (Generic)
We have a different approach when it comes to learning and teaching. The
Foundation Programme aligns technical competency to a student's individual
needs. Our methodology goes beyond teaching what is available in the books. It
comprises real-life case studies, and insights into application of technology.
These unique teaching aids go a long way in en su ring that the
students are “industry ready.”
Faculty Enablement Programme
The Faculty Enablement Programme introduces to the faculty the 9 generic
courses, CC teaching methodology, and prepares them to roll out the Foundation
Programme in their colleges. Through this programme we aim at a paradigm shift
in the learning and teaching methodology at an accelerated pace, to increase
effectiveness. The way the faculty train the students, assess them and put
technology to use undergoes a major change. It exposes faculty to the Infosys
way of professional training and sharing industry best practices.
Soft Skills Programme
We want students to acquire behavioural skills that will enable them to live by
principles. We believe that a person who has strong principles, and is
trustworthy, is a better team player than the others. This programme aims at
grooming individuals into excellent team players, who will have strong
communication skills, and will adapt to the corporate work culture easily.
Student Industrial Visit
A student- faculty group from different engineering disciplines visit one of the
Infosys DCs, and spend half a day there. The purpose of this visit is to
demystify the image that students would have on the working of IT business
enterprise. The well planned event exposes them to corporate work culture,
learning environment, Infosys background, services offered to global customers,
and learn about leading edge technologies through short lectures.
CC sponsors sabbaticals for the faculty, involving them at Infosys' Development
Centres for 2-3 months. We want to expose the faculty to real-life customer
project experiences. This is very important, as the experience that the faculty
gains here is further transmitted to the students.
Deep Dive Technology: Train the Trainer Programme
It is a technical workshop for engineering college faculty, conducted at one of
the Infosys' campus. Train The Trainer (TTT) covers an assorted set of
industry oriented topics for a chosen focus area and latest trend of
technologies in IT. It involves team discussions and analysis of real life case
studies/projects. TTT is the ideal setting for faculty to interact with su
bject matter experts, and impart the knowledge acquired to their students.
Keeping in Touch!
• Conclave : The CC
Conclave brings IT managers and college management on the same platform to
discuss the need and actions for academia-industry collaboration.
• Regional Meets: Regional
meets are an attempt to bring all the partnering colleges on
the same platform with the CC team. In the meet we acknowledge excellent
performances by partner colleges, motivate other colleges in the region, etc
Aspirations 2020: We want to create an exciting and appealing
learning environment in the CC partner colleges through knowledge events . As a
part of this initiative we are conducting a series of contests, clubbed
together as Aspirations 2020. It will include an IT-related quiz, a
paper presentation contest, and a “distinguished engineer” contest (will
involve problem solving, crisis management etc).
