About Electronics & ICT Academy
Electronics & ICT Academy (E & ICT Academy) at IIT Kanpur was established in 2016 in partnership with the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Government of India. It is mandated to provide industry focused and industry driven hands-on courses in electronics & ICT. E & ICT Academy strives to narrow the gap between the academic approach to electronics and ICT domains as currently provided by the educational institutions and the practical oriented approach as demanded by the industry. It intends to work towards enhancing the domain expertise of interested faculties with special focus on the faculties of the three northern states of U.P., Haryana, Punjab and the two union territories of Delhi and Chandigarh, through a continuous engagement model with courses upgraded regularly and a provision of lifetime access.
Though the courses are open to all, a special preference will be given to faculty from the three northern states of U.P., Haryana, Punjab and the two union territories of Delhi and Chandigarh. At present, the academy is offering a course on ‘Mobile Computing’ with several courses in pipeline to be launched soon. We plan to offer a wide variety of courses for beginners as well as experts in Python Programming, Big Data, Machine Learning, Hadoop, etc.
