The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi today launched skill development through its Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) with the help of Himachal Pradesh Kaushal Vikas Nigam (HPKVN). Interested candidates can visit the official website- iitmandi.ac.in to register.
IIT Mandi is all set to launch five short courses to help students of Himachal Pradesh with hands-on real-life engineering problems and make them employable and job ready. The duration of the courses will be one month long and the course registration has already begun.
“The one-month short courses are being introduced to develop the skills of Himachali youth with hands-on real-life engineering problems making them employable and ready for the job market,” said the institute. Free food, accommodation, and teaching material will be offered by the institute itself.
It further added, “The course is open to motivated IT, diploma engineers, engineering students, practising, working engineers, postgraduates and PhD level students, teachers, faculty members of technical institutions of Himachal Pradesh who are having a strong willingness to excel in their scientific and engineering research pursuits.”
The five new courses under HPKVN scheme are:
- Hands-on course on Embedded Systems
- Model Predictive Control for Industrial Systems
- Hands-on Training of Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Finite Element Modelling for Engineering
- Product Design and Manufacturing
Talking about the new courses, Tushar Jain, Head of the Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), said, “Seeing the success of the first course on School Camp on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (PRAYAS 1.0), we are further launching five new courses to further develop the skills of Himachali Youth in collaboration with HPKVN, Shimla. These courses target specific branches of engineering disciplines, which are helpful to train the young minds of Himachal Pradesh under the mentorship of experts at IIT Mandi and make them ready for the current job market.”
Further, he said, “This is the first time IIT Mandi has joined hands with HPKVN to impart engineering skills for the benefit of the state. Through these hands-on courses, the students will get the opportunity to stay on the IIT Mandi campus, get trained in different laboratories, and learn from the experienced faculty members.”
