At HCL K2 Academy, the students will be offered industry relevant IT skills in IT hardware, software and networking. The number of students to enroll is expected to grow to around 500 till the next academic session.
As part of its Educational Institutions Alliance Program, HCL has launched K2 academy with an objective of bridging the gap between the demand and supply of industry-ready ICT professionals by creating a skilled workforce and making them available to organizations deploying ICT.
HCL Education is ISO 9001 certified for its processes.
At HCL K2 Academy the students will be offered training on contemporary technologies, projects, industry exposure through principal workshops by Microsoft, Oracle and Redhat, visit to HCL manufacturing unit and an opportunity of internship at HCL and other associate companies. C M S College of Engineering will provide the necessary infrastructure for the courses with recommendations from HCL. Qualifying students at the end of curriculum will be awarded a certificate and performance based placement assistance.
According to Mr Rajendra Kumar, Vice President, HCL Infosystems Limited , “HCL K2 Academy’s industry interface courses have been designed to transform young students into industry-ready professionals, who are ready to take on ICT deployment responsibilities without the need for any further training. This promise has been symbolized in our program name HCL K2 Academy, where ‘K2’ stands for knowledge kinetics, and our student motto, “I’m the one” stands for what each as an individual wants to become and his/her ambition to achieve their professional goals. Today we are glad to offer the benefits of HCL K2 Academy to the students of Tamil Nadu,which will prepare them for a rewarding career in the IT industry”
In the world of high-end cutting-edge technologies that we live in today, the students do not have the exposure and training on leading edge technologies, which is so very critical to build the ICT infrastructure in the country.
Present on the occasion, Sri C Muthusamy, Chairman, C M S College of Engineering said, “The growth of ICT industry over the years has made it the most desired career destination for today’s students. We are therefore glad to partner with HCL Infosystems in offering students the education that would jumpstart their career in IT. We are also certain that our students will certainly benefit from the specialized courses, faculty and pedagogy that assimilate over thirty years of expertise of HCL Infosystems, India’s ICT industry pioneers.”
A study by Cisco-IDC estimates that one-third of companies are not able to fill their demand for networking professionals. Also according to an estimate by E-Value, there is an estimated annual demand of around 2 lakh networking professionals in the country while the supply is limited to about 60% of the demand.
