Saturday, December 18, 2010

SRINAGAR - The University of Kashmir has decided to establish an advanced IT centre to promote information technology in Jammu and Kashmir.

The university is all set to establish an advanced centre for IT in the campus, a fundamental step for ensuring development of the software industry and bringing a boom in employment for students.

Students have appreciated the steps taken by the authorities, and hope that the course generates employment.

“If a student passes out from here, they are simply an IT graduate but because of these courses, we have a specialization in a particular field because of which we have different qualities from a simple graduate,” said Nadia, an IT student.

“We get jobs in different fields and various companies. This course generates employment and we get to work as a specialized person,” she added.

The university authorities plan to develop infrastructure for this course.

“For IT industry, there should be separate infrastructure. We have identified five areas in which we are building infrastructure in a period of two-three years so that the IT professionals, who come out of the college, their employment is ensured,” said Merajud Din Dar, Director of Information Technology and Supports System at Kashmir University.

The Centre would impart training to IT professionals to ensure that the software industry in the region develops at a rapid pace. By Parvez Butt (ANI)
