Common Services Centers (CSC), under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and US-based Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on Friday have signed an agreement to help upskill a wider base of learners across the country in core technologies through its Blended Learning Programme (BLP) certificate courses.

IEEE is designed to serve professionals involved in all aspects of the electrical, electronic, and computing fields and related areas of science and technology that underlie modern civilisation.

Under this agreement, IEEE will work with CSCs across the country to train the young professionals in skills that align with the ‘Digital India’ initiative of the government, which in turn will create jobs in the emerging fields of building/managing data networks, Internet of Things (IoT), and help connect the nation digitally.

“Through this partnership with IEEE we look to strengthen our offering in the eLearning space for learners across the country, who will all benefit from our last mile reach. We expect the learners will be able to improve their chances of getting hired in the respective new-age domains of technology,” Dinesh Tyagi, Chief Executive Officer, CSC, said.

All IEEE BLP certificate programmes are developed in conjunction with industry leaders and are duly vetted by the IEEE peer review process by experts to ensure the programmes are world class in content and learning experience. “IEEE BLP aims to upskill one-lakh young professionals across the country in the emerging areas of technology such as the IoT and building Wi-Fi community networks,” Harish Mysore, Senior Director IEEE India Operations, said.
