The MoU, which has been signed as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of the JNTU-H, will help the university’s students to acquire necessary skills anytime and anywhere with continuous self-paced learning. During the event, JNTU-H Vice Chancellor Prof. Katta Narasimha Reddy spoke about the importance of the MoU with NASSCOM and emphasized the significance of digital transformation.

NASSCOM Vice-President and Head (Membership & Outreach) Srikanth Srinivasan said talent shortage was a universal issue being faced by every economy as the current demand stands at 20 times the available talent pool. For India to become a trillion dollar digital economy, it was crucial that industry, academia and the government unite their efforts towards reducing the demand-supply gap via mass skilling, Srinivasan said.

NASSCOM, as an industry body, was committed to working closely with academia by expanding skilling, up-skilling and reskilling opportunities for learners via the FutureSkills Prime platform that offers industry validated and government approved courses in emerging technologies along with certifications to skyrocket the careers of learners at JNTU-H among many others all over the country, Srinivasan said.

JNTU-H Rector Prof. A Govardhan said the MoU would help university students in up-skilling and deep skilling in emerging technologies.
