Chandigarh Group of Colleges (CGC) Landran has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Red Hat Academy, world’s leading provider of open source, enterprise IT solutions, which would see the latter setting up an academy in campus at CGC, facilitating students of the institution to pursue certified courses in cloud technologies with free enrolment.
The Academy will have a customised curriculum which would involve instruction across platform, middleware, and cloud technologies built with input from Red Hat development, support, and field consulting teams. Unlike a generic “distribution agnostic” Linux curriculum, Red Hat’s curriculum is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform.
“In addition to theoretical skills, the academy would help students learn practical skills based on-use cases from thousands of enterprise implementations. We at Red Hat believe that closing the technology skills gap is vitally important to the future of enterprise software and through our certificate courses we aim to help institutions like CGC Landran to prepare their graduates to be work ready, keeping them updated with the latest evolutions in technology through practical learning opportunities,” said Mr Khushdil Garg, Manager, Complete Open Source Solution.
As part of the MoU, Red Hat will also facilitate visits by Industry Experts to conduct Faculty Development Programmes (FDPs) and exclusive sessions with students aimed at enlightening them with the latest developments in the industry, eventually helping them gain considerable edge over their peers during placement drives.
Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chairman, CGC Landran and Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, President, CGC Landran said that the MoU would go a long way in enhancing its students’ subject proficiency through experiential learning in addition to making them more job ready.
