2. B.Tech (CSE) with Specialization in Business Analytics & Optimization
3. B.Tech (CSE) with Specialization in Cyber Security & Forensics

to provide students with the needed skills & edge while seeking employment in the industry.

IBM’s collaboration with GDGU aims to reduce this technical skills gap of students. As part of IBM’s Innovation Centre for Education program, BM Ihas provided GDGU the design and delivery of innovative curricula integrated with a Learning Management System. The students enrolled for this program will be awarded the B.Tech. degree byGDGU along with an IBM certificate. The students are given credentials to access online course material, discussion forums and other online collaborative functionalities.

This collaborative programme intends to impart quality education to the engineering undergraduates keeping in mind the requirements of both academia and industry in the field of computing discipline for improved employability. The existing GDGU B.Tech. (CSE) program has been suitably merged with the curricular component developed at IBM ICE (Innovation Centre for Education) with emphasis on futuristic technology such as Cloud Computing and Virtualization, Business Analytics & Optimization and Cyber Security & Forensics. A collaborative Online Ecosystem learning platform called iCos has been provided to the students who have enrolled for the program in order to facilitate interaction among the community of students, faculty, IBM Subject Matter Experts and other professionals from computing industry. This initiative brings together the latest software applications, real-world industry experiences, hands-on lab course, best teaching-learning practices and case studies all into a single unique educational program.

Specifically, Program access to the following modules will be provided to the enrolled students:
