JSS STU becomes 1st university in Karnataka to offer 4 year B.E Course in CSBS designed by TCS

To address the growing need of engineering talent with skills in digital technology, TCS, in partnership with leading academicians across India, has designed a curriculum for 4 years undergraduate program on Computer Science titled “Computer Science and Business Systems (CSBS)”. JSS Science and Technology University (Formerly SJCE) is the first University in Karnataka to offer this course from the year 2019-20. The curriculum aims to ensure that the students graduating from the program not only know the core topics of Computer Science but also develop an equal appreciation of humanities, management sciences and human values. The students are exposed to emerging topics such as Analytics, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) etc., to make them industry ready at the end of four years of study. This curriculum has been approved by the Executive Committee of AICTE and is available in the AICTE drop-down menu of nomenclatures for engineering course. TCS has launched this course in the academic year 2018-19.

Today, JSS Science and Technology University, Mysuru signed a MOU with TCS to offer CSBS program to the students in the upcoming batch. The MOU was signed by Registrar, JSS Science and Technology University and Mr. Chandra Koduru, Head of Academic Interface Programme of TCS. Mr. Mageshwaran BJ, A&I AIP and Mr. Sreenivasa Ramanujam, Head of Academic Interface Programme – Karnataka from TCS was also present in the occasion along with University Vice Chancellor – Dr. BG Sangameshwara, Deans of Engineering, Management and Resaerch, Deputy Registrar, Assistant Registrar, Dr M Pradeep Training and Placement officer, HODs and Senior faculty from JSS Science and Technology University, Mysuru . As part of the MoU, TCS will support JSS Science and Technology University by training and developing their faculty, organising guest lectures by expert practitioners from the industry, and by engaging in continuous assessment of the students. Additionally, TCS will also offer internship to select students undergoing this program and involve them in meaningful projects to provide first-hand exposure to the real-life business problem.

“TCS has a long history of partnering with academia to create industry relevant course” said Ranjan Bandyopadhyay, Vice President, Human Resources, TCS, “through this program, we are confident to develop bright, committed and ethical Computer Science graduates to address the future human resource needs of Indian IT industry in the era of Business 4.0”.
