IIT-Roorkee, India Offers Online Courses In Cloud Computing, Software Development

The Electronics & ICT Academy in the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IIT-Roorkee) has launched online certification programmes in software development, cloud computing, and data science in collaboration with Great Learning. It is designed to make learners industry-ready, building the technical skills that will help them become productive, reliable software developers by building end-to-end full-stack software applications.

IIT-Roorkee will offer two types of programmes. The first is a 10-month advanced certificate programme in full-stack software development with a specialisation in either cloud computing or python for data science. The second is shorter duration certificate programmes in front-end software development, back-end software development, cloud computing, and Python for data science.

Learners will be taught by solving real-world problems, which will require planning, design, coding, code reviews, and testing. They will receive periodic and constant support from faculty and industry experts via live sessions and webinars. Students will also receive extensive career and placement assistance from Great Learning to crack their next dream job in tech, the Institute said.

According to a news report, the courses would be curated and delivered by a collaboration of experts from IIT-Roorkee, other academic institutions, and industry experts through online, self-paced, or hybrid modes. The programmes will consist of online content, weekend live sessions, and a series of practical projects.

The IIT-Roorkee Director, Ajit K Chaturvedi, said that with the world rapidly progressing towards a digital economy, these skills are required to enhance India’s workforce. The programmes are specially designed for recent graduates who are looking to add value to their profiles and early-stage working professionals aspiring to become full-stack developers, back-end developers, SDE, front-end developers, cloud engineers, or data analysts. On the completion of the programmes, participants will receive a certificate from IIT-Roorkee’s Electronics & ICT Academy.

The Electronics & ICT Academy at IIT-Roorkee provides training programmes with an emphasis on hands-on learning in basic/advanced topics and emerging technologies in the electronics and ICT domain. The project is sponsored by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.

Last month, the Institute launched online certification programmes in data science and machine learning on Coursera. It will help learners to understand the algorithms used in data analytics. It will also help to build knowledge about the selected ML algorithms such as linear models, kNN, SVM, Decision Trees, and neural networks, among others.

More recently, the Indian Institute of Bombay (IIT-Bombay) also announced its free online course on advanced technologies. It is accepting applications for an online course on how to create an Android application using Kotlin software, a news report informed. Kotlin software is a new open-source programming language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is an official language on Android by Google.

The course consists of ten audio-video spoken tutorials that can be taken up by learners at their convenience once they register on the government’s SWAYAM platform. The programme is an All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE)-approved FDP course, which will be conducted by a professor at IIT-Bombay. The course could take approximately eight weeks to finish and is targeted toward undergraduate and post-graduate students.
