In a bid to upskill its technology professionals in Data Science and Analytics Technologies, CitiusTech, a provider of healthcare technology and consulting solutions, has partnered with Birla Institute of Technology and Science Pilani’s Work Integrated Learning Programmes (WILP) division.
CitiusTech’s engineers can now leverage BITS Pilani WILP’s leading programmes, such as MTech in Data Science and Engineering and MBA in Business Analytics, to fortify their healthcare and quality analytics expertise.
WILP has been an integral division of BITS Pilani for nearly four decades and aims to help working professionals enhance their knowledge and skills primarily in science and technology while continuing to work for their respective organisations.
Elaborating on the partnership, G. Sundar, director, Off-Campus Programmes & Industry Engagement, BITS Pilani, said, “We are happy to partner with CitiusTech through our new-age programmes in the field of Data Science and Engineering and Business Analytics. These programmes aim to help the enrolled individuals (from CitiusTech) to keep informed about emerging technologies. It'll also prepare them to anticipate and address market requirements in a specialised industry like healthcare.”
CitiusTech will benefit from BITS Pilani WILP’s flexible teaching curriculum that offers multi-year programmes, which are tailored around organisations and their respective industries.
BITS Pilani WILP uses fully functional and frequently maintained equipment and software in its virtual and remote labs, which are open to the students throughout the year. It also provides course handouts and video lectures that can be attended at the learner's convenience, making it an ideal choice for CitiusTech’s current engineering and consulting workforce.
“With the growing adoption of digital transformation and new-age technologies in healthcare, there is a need to reskill or upskill technology professionals on a continuous basis. We take pride in collaborating with BITS Pilani, one of India’s leading institutions for technical education. With WILP, CitiusTech’s employees can now build deep Data Science and Analytics expertise through high-quality programmes while they continue to work with us,” said Vaishali Desai, vice president & head of Learning at CitiusTech.
