Emerging technology”

Collaborating to reskill workforce towards a Digitally Transformed industry
Kurukshetra, Nov 1, 2018: NIT Kurukshetra and Bangalore based AEON Learning,
India’s leading edtech company, today announced the launch of Acadgild Centre of
Excellence on Emerging Technology (ACEET). ACEET would offer technology skills
courses to enhance the technical skills of students, and Executives to meet the rapidly
growing demand for tech skilled professionals on technologies viz. Data Science, Data
Analytics, Blockchain, Artificial Learning, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Big Data etc
ACEET, that was inaugurated today at the NIT Kurukshetra campus, would offer these
programs in a hybrid model that includes both online (real time live online classes) and
physical classroom delivery mode catering to both in-campus as well as remote learner
via the Acadgild Learning platform delivered by highly experienced industry and subject
matter experts

Padma Shri Dr. Satish Kumar, Director, National Institute of Technology,
Kurukshetra, Haryana said, “Our Endeavour would bolster Prime Minister’s statement
of Impact of Emerging fields, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet
of things, blockchain, and big data which can take India to new heights of development,
and improve the quality of life of its citizens.”

Karthik KS, founder of AEON Learning said, “Around 65% tech and non-tech jobs will
be re-defined by swift advancements in machine learning, AI and automation at the
workplace. Emerging technologies require executives proficient in skills of tomorrow,
and the pressure to re-discover workways is mounting and this relationship would
reach training on emerging technology even to the remote learning who are pressed of
time to take an academic sabbatical.

NIT Kurukshetra is one of the most respected institutes in India with its NIRF ranking
improving from 60 to 43 in the last year. In an effort to reach this academic excellence
to a much larger student base in the remote locations of India it partnered with AEON
Learning to deliver classes both in classroom mode initially at Kurukshetra, Gurgaon,
Bangalore and Hyderabad, and via online delivery of classes through live lectures. One
of the key features of this initiative is that unlike many online courses which just offers
video recorded lectures, classed conducted through the Acadgild Platform would
maintain the same rigour as in a classroom wherein students would be limited per
batch with specific timings for online lectures followed by coding practice sessions and
compulsorily submitted assignments are assessed by SMEs. This ensures the institute is
able to maintain its academic excellence.”
