TCS inks MoU with Chandigarh University
To offer 4 years Undergraduate Engineering Course on “Computer Science & Business Systems” from the current session
To address the growing need of engineering talent with skills in digital technology, TCS, in partnership with leading academicians across India, has designed a curriculum for 4 years undergraduate program on Computer Science titled “Computer Science and Business Systems (CSBS)”. This curriculum aims to ensure that the students graduating from the program not only know the core topics of Computer Science but also develop an equal appreciation of humanities, management sciences and human values. The students are exposed to emerging topics such as Analytics, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things etc. to make them industry-ready at the end of four years of study. This curriculum has been approved by the Executive Committee of AICTE and is available in the AICTE drop-down menu of nomenclatures for engineering course. TCS has launched this course in the academic year 2018-19 in partnership with three engineering colleges across India and plans to scale up to a large number of premium institutes from the academic year 2019-20.
Today, Chandigarh University, Mohali signed an MOU with TCS to offers CSBS program to the students in the upcoming batch. The MOU was signed by Dr RS Bawa, Vice-Chancellor, Chandigarh University and Ranjan Bandyopadhyay, Global Vice President – Human Resources, TCS.
