Education Interface Program

India continues to be one of the global leaders in the knowledge economy, providing skills to the industry both domestic as well as global. The NASSCOM-McKinsey survey 2010 for IT/BPO companies has targeted to achieve USD 225 billion dollars by as against USD 67.5 billion dollars today. To achieve this mammoth task, the industry needs to strengthen its practices, be innovative and have strong research and development capabilities among other factors. Industry also needs specialized skills for their growth. This gap is a critical matter of concern for specialized area such as information security and privacy. It is with this objective in view that Education Interface program (EIP) was thought of as a step to connect these two segments together on a platform created by DSCI.

The EIP initiative will bring industry and educational institutions together for collaboration, mutual learning and achieve economic objectives. The program provide opportunities for the educational institutions and industry to identify problems, develop methods and solutions; create research projects and papers, promote new ideas, validate them; conduct workshops and publish monographs.

The program provides opportunity to educational institutes to register their institution, their education programs, curriculum, projects, trainings, student strength, among others with DSCI. DSCI through its EIP initiative will provide visibility to the educational programs run by the registered institutes to the Industry.

DSCI welcomes educational institutions to participate in EIP and help the industry as well the country in achieving its growth targets. For any queries related to this program, please write to us at info@dsci.in.
