Reportedly wipro Limited has partnered with the National Association of software and services Companies (NASSCOM) to launch the Future Skills platform for 10,000 students from over 20 engineering colleges in India. Meanwhile this is a part of Wipro’s corporate Social Responsibility programme TalentNext, which aims to enhance the quality of engineering education by preparing faculty and academic leaders to train students.
Furthermore the program has now been extended to students directly through Future Skills, which is a new age platform built to bridge the industry academia skill gap and help students keep pace with the emerging technologies Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity and Internet of Things (IoT) to make them future-ready.
Perhaps Rishad Premji, Chairman, wipro Limited said, “I am very passionate about this program. The magic of this platform is that it allows content and people to come together. It allows curation and learning at one’s own pace. It is nice to see the platform moving downstream to work with students and thus widening the talent pool for the industry. We are committed, excited and look forward to attracting more students with new age skills.” Moreover the first phase of the programme was rolled out by Rishad Premji and Debjani Ghosh in the presence of senior leaders from wipro and NASSCOM on tuesday and the event also saw participation from a host of academicians and partners.
