NTT DATA Invests in Future Workforce with New Training for Engineering Students

Program will benefit third and fourth-year engineering students pursuing a specialization in computer science engineering and information technology

CHENNAI - September 21, 2023 – NTT DATA, a global leader in digital business and IT services, has established three Full Stack Computing Centers of Excellence (CoE) in collaboration with the reputed R.M.K. Group of Engineering Colleges in Chennai affiliated to Anna University, Tamil Nadu.

The NTT DATA Full Stack Computing Center of Excellence’s primary objective is to enhance students' skills in end-to-end application development. Students will undergo comprehensive training encompassing HTML, CSS, JavaScript, back-end languages like Python, PHP and Ruby as well as gaining proficiency in Agile project management and essential soft skills. As a part of the CoE, NTT DATA’s proprietary training platform will be made accessible to students. Trainers from NTT DATA will also engage and train faculty during guest sessions.

“The $245 billion Indian Technology industry is currently witnessing an "employability gap" in engineering graduates,” said Niranjan Kumar, Senior Vice President, NTT DATA Services. “NTT DATA is committed to nurturing talent by providing them with training platforms on emerging technologies, ensuring their seamless integration into the future tech workforce.”

The three colleges associated with this initiative are R.M.K. Engineering College, R.M.D. Engineering College and R.M.K. College of Engineering and Technology. These institutions hold an accreditation from the NAAC and NBA. This strategic partnership aims to ensure that the colleges are equipped to nurture students’ education in alignment with industry requirements.

The initiative's first phase aims to engage 500 students across the three colleges, focusing on third- and fourth-year engineering students specializing in Computer Science Engineering and Information Technology. This is a first-of-its-kind industry-academia CoE partnership for NTT DATA in the country.

NTT DATA conducts continued research and development on new technologies and the investment in the CoEs is a testimony to the organization’s commitment to shaping engineers of the future. The association will involve crafting curricula aligned with industry trends and engaging closely with each college to analyze syllabi while addressing industry gaps. This initiative entails a diverse learning program, including train-the-trainer workshops, guest lectures, conferences, and e-learning.

Vidya Ratna Thiru Dr. R.S. Munirathinam, Founder Chairman and Shri R.M. Kishore, Vice-Chairman, RMK Group of Institutions, said, “We are looking forward to collaborating with NTT DATA on this pioneering endeavor, which aligns perfectly with our commitment to providing students with holistic education.
