The partnership, which falls under MSU’s WISE (Work Integrated Skill-based Higher Education) strategy, aims to provide industry 4.0-aligned work-integrated programs that will empower students. Through Apprenticeship-Embedded Degree Programs (AEDP), participants will gain on-the-job training experience and be exposed to real-time industry-relevant projects.

On this occasion, the signings on behalf of their respective organizations were Dr. Abdurahiman Chalil, Managing Director, DBI, and Mr. Kuldip Sarma, Pro-Chancellor, MSU. The event was graced by the august presence and invaluable insights of Dr. Sajeev Kumar S, Vice President of MSU; Dr. Abdul Salam Muhammed, CEO of Markaz Knowledge City.

MSU, India’s leading Skills University, and DBI, Markaz will together introduce a range of innovative and new-age Computer Application programs. This includes specialized courses such as BCA in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Data Science, Full-Stack Development, Software Development, and UI/UX Design.

The curriculum for these courses adheres to the guidelines of the National Education Policy (NEP) and the National Credit Framework (NCrF), ensuring that students receive a well-rounded education that is both industry-relevant and future-focused.
