In words of Dr. K R V Subramanian, “The program’s credibility stems from the IIIT-B brand name as well as the people behind the program - some of the best names in the learning space. One of the main innovations of this program is the use of cutting edge learning technologies and methodologies, which allow the students to practice what they learn, thereby linking learning to performance. We are happy with how the program has shaped up so far. More importantly, the students seem very happy with what they are getting out of this program. The response from the industry has been terrific as well. The first batch had a total of 98 students. All of the students have been placed. Some of the companies that hired from the program are Cisco, IBM, CSC and Sapient."
