Tech Saksham: AICTE-ATAL’s Faculty Development Program in collaboration with Microsoft and SAP

We are glad to share that AICTE has collaborated with Microsoft and SAP to build technical capacity of institutes and drive the large-scale skilling of teachers under the TechSaksham Program. Here is the link to the press-release for your reference – Press Announcement

Under the collaboration, we will be launching the Faculty Development Programs (FDPs) on Artificial Intelligence for all our teachers from the associated engineering colleges. The objective of these FDPs will be to provide

  1. hands-on training for faculty with relevant industry use cases
  2. provide continuous support / technical mentorship to faculty beyond FDP to enable faculty to train their students based on the learnings gained from training

Unlike traditional FDPs, these FDPs are aimed at creating strong, continuous and sustained linkages amongst the industry and academia. Some of the key highlights of these FDPs, include

  • Opportunity to earn certification from Microsoft, SAP and AICTE upon successful completion
  • Continuous engagement of faculty with experts from Industry during and after FDP to provide technical support and mentorship
  • Leverage tools, content and pedagogy from FDP to integrate learnings in classroom
  • Opportunity for formal recognition from Microsoft, SAP and AICTE based on the work done in the program
  • Opportunity to interact with experts from Microsoft and SAP during and/or after training
  • Access to e-learning certification courses from Microsoft and SAP
  • Hands-on experiential learning in relevant technology vertical

We will be starting our 1st FDP under the collaboration from Sep 15th and these will be launched by the leadership team at AICTE, Microsoft and SAP.

The brief agenda of the program is given below.
