The Collaboration

Starting in academic year 2014,  Ganpat  University (GNU), and IBM (under its Career Education program) have agreed to launch Engineering programs with specialization using IBM Software. The aim is to develop sufficient industry needed skills for manpower on critical emerging technology area such as Cloud, Mobility, Big Data & Analytics.

IBM - Career Education program is a holistic, comprehensive one with customized offerings for Engineering and Business Schools, students and faculty members. The programs bring together the latest software content, real-world industry experiences, hands-on lab courses, current practices and case studies for the participants to have engaged learning.


IBM and GNU have collaborated to setup an IBM Software Lab for Emerging Technologies in the campus to help students and faculty members enhance their skills in areas of Big Data & Analytics, Cloud Computing, and Mobility. The industry collaborated courses in association with IBM provide a unique platform to the students to have hands-on experience with live projects, which are mentored by industry experts. This enables students to attain industry-readiness and transform themselves into highly employable trained professionals.
