NASSCOMNew Delhi, India, November 18, 2013: To further hone skills of students, Sector Skills Council NASSCOM (SSC NASSCOM) in collaboration with NASSCOM member companies in the Engineering and Research & Development (ERD) space, today launched the Foundation Skills in Integrated Product Development (FSIPD) program. The curriculum outlines the methodology for the courseware developed by member companies that aims to empower students to achieve this objective.

The key contributors of this program Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Technologies and NIT Silchar have helped fine-tune the curriculum for the program to enable students enhance their skills in the subject.

As per the Booz and Allen report, the export revenue from India for Engineering and Design is poised to touch USD 40 billion by 2020. Keeping this in mind, the achievement of this goal correlates to the availability of talent pool that is relevant and closer to the industry requirement.

At an industry level we always strive to achieve excellence and are making significant investments in tools, technolo­gy and talent. We are positive that the launch of the FSIPD program will be successful in equipping students with the desired skill set and further contribute to the growth of our sector and the overall Indian economy.”

The NASSCOM Engineering Council has additionally sponsored a study that will help identify the gaps between the industry requirements and the academic outcome. Under the Engineering Talent Council, companies like Alcatel Lucent, Aricent, EMC, Geometric Limited, HCL Technologies, Huawei, iGate, Infosys Technologies Limited, KPIT Technologies Limited, Microsoft Corporation India (Private) Limited, Quest Global, Robert Bosch Engineering & Business Solutions Limited, SAP Labs India, Sasken,

The program is being launched in pilot mode at 15 colleges across the country. As part of the FSID program, the ‘Train-the-Trainer’ (TTT) initiative will be launched and held over 5 days from November 18th–22nd, 2013 at Chennai. The TTT is being supported by Industry Trainers and will additionally witness participation from various colleges.
