Tata Consultancy Services has taken the initiative to fill the gap between academic output and industry demand.The demand for quality students has had the IT companies queuing up at leading colleges and at times even recruiting them even before they graduate. However, there are a few companies that look at colleges as more than being just `talent pools'. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is one of them.
With its `Tata Academic Interface Programme' the IT major is putting in place faculty development programmes, internship for students, awards and medals for Best student and Best project, conducting workshops and getting professionals and their own trainers to address students in their classrooms. All this and more comes as a part of the MoU signed between TCS and IT-BHU last month. The MoU has been signed for 3 years.
Academic Interface Programme is the company's initiative aimed to fill the gap between academic output and industry demand. The industry has to take the initiative to ensure that students get better training at their colleges itself.
The workshops start from January 2007 and will be evenly spread across all semesters.
