BSNL ties up with Oracle for telecom-oriented training for engg grads

By : |June 17, 2013 0

In an initiative, BSNL has collaborated with Oracle to strengthen BSNL’s summer vocational training program for engineering students, with the inclusion of a daylong industry-relevant technology workshop delivered by Oracle. This is the first time that BSNL has engaged with an external organisation like Oracle and introduced new curriculum content to enable students’ exposure to the latest technology trends relevant in the telecom industry.

As a part of its industry-oriented academic initiative, BSNL run programs related to telecom technologies for engineering students during their summer vacations. These programs are aimed at providing exposure to relevant telecom technology trends and practices to students as they prepare to enter the workforce in the telecom industry. These programs are coordinated through various training centers of BSNL, operating since decades, which along with other field set-ups have now been opened for capacity building initiatives also.

BSNL GM (training) Neeraj Verma said that with Oracle, they aim to bring industry-relevant education to engineering students across India. “Our engagement with Oracle is an important initiative that will help supplement our efforts in building a skilled workforce for the telecom sector in India,” he daid. Starting June 17, 2013 these workshops for the summer vocational program for engineering students, will include a one-day program conducted by Oracle on upcoming technology trends.

In the first phase, the workshops will be held at BSNL training centers in Ghaziabad, Pune, Trivandrum, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata from June to August 2013. BSNL will connect students in other centers/field units to these workshops via web platform. Last year, over 100,000 students across India got associated with the summer program from BSNL, via multiple platforms.

Oracle India MD Sandeep Mathur said that telecom operators’ reliance on IT has increased dramatically. “It has become crucial for the new workforce entering the telecom sector to develop knowledge and skills that are pertinent to the industry. For the first time, BSNL invited a technology solution provider, like Oracle, to support them in this endeavor,” he added.
