UG and PG students, Working Professionals
The course provides hands-on exposure to candidates on computer system architecture and in-depth knowledge and upgradation in the domain. The course is an out-come based and project-oriented, which has greater relevance to showcase the student’s ability in learning. The certificate course will be an add-on along with the regular curriculum and exposes the student’s ability to learn new things along with the curriculum. The charge is very minimal compared with the standards of the industry as well as certification bodies.
