School of Engineering and Information Technology organized a webinar on career and placement opportunities in Engineering and Information Technology. The webinar was organized in collaboration with leading edtech company UpGrad. The session was organized to explore and understand the career opportunities in Engineering and Information Technology, especially post COVID-19. The session was facilitated by Dr. Ankur Sodhi who is currently working as Associate Director, UpGrad.
He gave a deeper insight into AI, Business Analytics, and various other courses for the exponentially growing technology-enabled education. He shared the changing trends in the domain of technology-enabled education. He shared the career opportunities available in India and abroad in the current scenario as well as in the future.
While interacting with the students, Dr. Ankur Sodhi said “Job trends are changing at a very fast pace and it is important to emphasize more about teaching, learning, and assessment in digital and online education. He reiterated the fact that technology is changing really fast and the technology infrastructure in our economy is rapidly emerging at a very fast pace. Education is no longer a once in a lifetime event; it is an ongoing activity for a lifetime popularly known as lifelong learning. The students will have to learn how to learn, unlearn, and relearn multiple times. We are collaborating with universities and colleges to teach students the right play, through the experience we got from working professionals. Learning new skills make students future-ready, job-ready.”
Chancellor Shri Sachin Gupta said, “The students should focus on creativity and innovation apart from the focus on acquiring knowledge, skills, life skills, and competencies to cater to the requirements of the corporate world in India and abroad.”
The Dean of the School of Engineering and Information Technology said that the session was very interactive and informative for all the students as well as us faculty members. We have always emphasized the importance of learning new trends and technology to cope-up with changing times and trends so as to make sure that our students are confident and comfortable to handle diverse challenges and situations in the corporate world. Information Technology is a vast area of knowledge and the number of opportunities available is extraordinary in India and abroad.
