IT education is getting popular among the students these days. Some may want to be a programmer, web-designer, software developer or a system analyst .But are these the only prospect of IT education? Or can we build-up our career in other rather than the aforementioned? This seminar targets to answer this question.
It is a well-known fact that our academia syllabus doesn’t cover the industrial needs. There is a huge gap between what the industry wants and what we can offer. In academy, students learn the basic skills and concepts but in the industry level just implementing those skills and concepts are not adequate because the needs are ever changing in the market. Moreover, the challenges are also diverse in the industry level as innovation is the key to success at this level unlike mastering the preset courses at the academy. One has to have the aptitude for learning new things, being self motivated and being updated about the constant changes in the needs of the market constantly in order to sustain in the industry. Therefore, in this seminar, we unravel these aspects and discuss on different ways to bridge this gap. In addition to that, we can learn about various hot and happenings in the ever growing IT industry, first hand from the experts.
