    • The first year of the specialized course has taken into consideration all fundamental areas and aspects of technical and management training required for this program. A good mix of computer related courses use microcomputers to introduce standard techniques of programming; the use of software packages such as databases and programming languages for developing applications; system analysis and design tools. The general 3 business courses include the functional areas of management like information systems and decision support systems and engineering aspects of software development.
  6. The Job Opportunities are
    • Many graduates begin their career at a junior level but are not in a position to map their job with expert technical skills obtained from a usual programme. The specialized program would enhance their exposure to variety of roles and responsibilities they can take up in any areas of expertise. For e.g.: In the area of software development they could take up responsibilities in areas of database, product development, product maintenance and support in addition to management activities.
    • Focused grooming would also make it easier for the IT industry to decide which graduate could be mapped to the right domain.
    • Enabling entrepreneurship is also the need of the hour and students interested to be on their own could leverage from the newly designed focused programme for entrepreneurs.
