NEW DELHI: The Electronics and ICT Academy, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati and an edtech firm AlmaBetter have collaborated to offer certificate programmes in data science, artificial intelligence, and web stack development.

Under the collaboration, learners will be able to acquire an advanced certification in full stack data science and AI, and full stack web development.

With this partnership, IIT Guwahati, and AlmaBetter intend to train learners and improve their employability in data science, software engineering, and other specialized fields. The curriculum has been designed and vetted by the academy. Learners enrolling with AlmaBetter will get an additional advanced certification from the academy enabling them to get IIT-certified global standard education.

The learners would have access to guest lectures by the IIT Guwahati faculty and can opt for a campus immersion opportunity at the IIT Guwahati campus. After completing this certification, learners can add an IIT endorsement to their resumes which will help them enhance their career prospects.

“This collaboration between IIT Guwahati and AlmaBetter is poised to reshape the tech education landscape in the country. In the current scenario, access to premium institutes and high-quality tech education is limited to a select few, restricted to only some premium institutes. As per a report released in 2018, only 3% of the total number of students in India make up for enrolments in premium institutes like IIMs and IITs. With this partnership, AlmaBetter aims to increase this fraction by at least 30% by democratizing tech education and making it widely accessible and affordable to tech enthusiasts and professionals nationwide,” said an official statement from IITG.

E&ICT Academies are a joint initiative by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), and national institutes such as IITs and National Institutes of Technology (NITs).
