India is one of the world’s great countries and has been a major seat of learning for thousands of years. The country was home to both Takshashila – the first university in the world, and to the inventor of the digit 0 – Aryabhaṭa.
We strive to create an intellectual instructional environment that will help our students carry out their educational courses and master their training. To effectively support learning, computing labs remain accessible 24*7 to all our students in all our training centres.
At the beginning of the course, students are assigned a workstation and the machine is designated to them till the end of their learning programme. This allows our students full accessibility to learning anytime they want. Students can review, analyse and revise on the specific skills they have acquired during their learning sessions. This critical factor enriches the overall learning experience of the learner.
In order to assist the students with computer problems, network and basic questions, lab assistants are present in all labs. However, they do not assist the students with assignment completion or programming logic.
Machines could be reserved by instructors for scheduled classes, conferences, demonstrations or other group activities. During such class sessions, those machines are closed to other users.
