Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) in Bangalore has partnered with IBM to incorporate advanced Information Technology (IT) related concepts into the existing B.Tech (Bachelors in Technology) courses offered by the university.

According to Dr. G. Viswanathan, Chancellor, VIT and IBM share a common objective  which is to help students receive current industry knowledge, get hands-on practical experience on latest technologies, thus providing them with a competitive edge in the industry. As a global leading technology corporation, IBM will help bring in experts to design and deliver a completely new set of courses that meet the evolving needs of the industry. We are proud to be associated with IBM, the global IT leader, to give the students of VIT a deeper insight into the industry.

It has been planned by VIT and IBM to design and deliver a new set of courses for the students. These courses will imbibe deep theoretical knowledge coupled with broad-based industry alignment, interaction, talent discoverability as well as excellence in their professional practice. The range of courses being offered makes this a first-of-its-kind partnership between IBM and VIT in South India. This joint initiative by IBM and VIT will augment finishing school efforts of the industry by preparing them better for future employability. The availability of job-ready graduates will also help fill the gap within the IT industry, where fresh graduates take long unproductive time to get deployed on customer sites or projects.

Participating in the event, Alok Ohrie, the Vice President, Systems & Technology Group, IBM India South Asia said that today, there is a greater demand for skilled technology professionals. These are exciting times that emphasize the need to raise the service level capabilities, become more systematic in innovation and constantly strive for excellence. We believe this partnership with VIT will help students equip themselves with most up-to-date technology and be the workforce of tomorrow.
