How many times have IT companies’ employers complained about fresh recruits from engineering colleges not being “industry ready?” Enter Campus Connect (CC) to bridge this gap!
Launched by Infosys in May 2004, CC is a unique academia-industry initiative to “architect the education experience”. Our goal is to build a sustainable partnership with engineering education institutions in India and abroad for mutual benefit; producing “industry ready” recruits.
Our objective in launching the CC programme is to enhance the quality and quantity of the IT talent-pool; sustain the growth of the IT industry itself. We don’t want to increase the number of engineering colleges, or the number of graduates. We intend to increase the employability of students. We want to have a consistent output, irrespective of all variables involved. It doesn’t matter where the college is located (big city or remote town), the kind of faculty, or students. However the conditions may be, with the help of our partners, we want to achieve a high-quality, constant product
As per predictions, by the year 2040, Asia, especially the Indian subcontinent will have the maximum number of working professionals in the world! Doesn’t this throw up huge possibilities your way? Clearly we have a plethora of opportunities staring us in the face. The future looks bright and promising…all we need to do is work towards it.
Currently we have more than 300 engineering colleges under our wing, and the numbers are growing steadily! As a part of the CC programme, we have launched this portal. The portal will provide a digital platform for academia-industry interaction anytime, and anywhere.
