Keep reading to learn why we decided to undergo this change and how it will impact our students. Let’s get started.
Why Did We Make This Shift?
SITM was founded in 1996 and was inline with the then Nation Telecom Policy of the Indian Government. Over the years, The Telecom industry has become the technology enabler and the Indian government recognizes this. The Indian Government released its National Digital communications policy with a futuristic view of how the Digital and Telecom industry can impact other sectors. Inline with this update, we at SIDTM decided to incorporate these changes. This change is not just limited to our name, but also defines the way we have designed our latest curriculum, updated our teaching methodology, and added new certified courses.
Why Was There a Need to Change?
There is a massive shift towards digitization and digital transformation across every sector and domain. This rapid adoption of new technologies like IOT, Cloud, 5G, AI, Big data analytics etc is certainly pushing the demand for skilled workforce. A technologically skilled and superior workforce also means a heightened demand for technologically skilled managers across the line. Management executives are no longer expected to understand project management, marketing, sales but have a deep understanding of technologies, their merits and demerits and limitations.
Prof. Abhijeet Chirputkar (Director SIDTM), says ‘The telecom companies are no longer limited to providing, SIM cards, calls and SMS services. Telecom companies themselves evolved to digital content providers with TV, video and audio, business apps, IOT services, payments bank etc. All these new initiatives need a very skilled workforce, especially with 5G on the horizon. Also with the extensive digital footprint being created by users, these organizations are looking for data mining and analytics at a large scale.’
