IBM also trains and certifies them in its DB2 and RAD tools

GUNTUR: Students of Vignan University had an opportunity to update their skills, as personnel from software giant IBM conducted a four-day training programme in ‘TIVOLI', which began on May 25.

Thrust on research

The students had been trained as part of the university's thrust on research.

The university had set up the Vignan Foundation for Science, Technology and Research, under which training in core areas was being provided to students.

Some fifteen faculty members and 85 students from Computer Science and Information Technology streams attended the workshop.

Addressing students, senior trainer from IBM Mayur Sowanshi said that TIVOLI had the expertise to design, build and manage a dynamic infrastructure to improve service, reduce cost and manage risk.

Popular products

The students were also trained and certified in IBM's other two very popular products—DB2 & Rational Application Development (RAD) tools. Such training programmes not only build pool of users of IBM's products but also help students understand the functionality of these products, which were common across all the companies like Microsoft, Oracle etc.

Proven skills in Object-oriented Programming, Database Management Systems, A domain specific Computer Application Software and exposure to scripting languages and web technologies had become mandatory for engineering graduates to be taken seriously by employers, Mr. Mayur added.

Beneficial blend

Vice-Chancellor of the university V. Govardhana Rao said that the training and certification programmes, which had been seamlessly blended in curriculum, would address this issue.

Director (Training and Placement) T.V. Rao, director of the programme, thanked the management for holding such beneficial programmes.
