MET trains professionals for IT sector
In order to enhance the professional capabilities of IT aspirants, MET launched industry’s first initiative by offering training & certification at no cost. Known as 'Industry Preparatory Workshop', the sessions were conducted by MET Institute of Software Development on 27th & 28th June, 2014.
‘At MET, we believe India has immense IT talent but these graduates are not yet ready to handle the corporate challenges. This workshop was designed to ease them into the roles they will be playing in the industry. They have the knowledge but lack the understanding of what and how to apply. In these training sessions we were able to impart the fine technical nuances of software development which took them beyond the mere academics’ said Pankaj Bhujbal, Trustee - MET.
Over 80 students who wished to make an entry into the booming IT industry participated in this workshop and were awarded the training certificates on the successful completion. The two day workshop focused on the application of latest technologies such as the .NET Framework 4.5, WCF, WPF and Silverlight etc. These technologies will enable fresh IT aspirants to handle complexities while building software applications. “It’s been indeed a great value addition to me, I feel more confident after the workshop, thank you MET for providing this opportunity to interact and learn from professionals” said Nirali – one of the participants.
Experienced software consultants who delivered the module also highlighted the emerging trends in the IT sector and offered tips to tackle corporate-life challenges.
