A study conducted by Springboard Research shows that the market for enterprise networking equipment in India is estimated to grow from $1 billion in 2008 to $1.7 billion by 2012, recording a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 % during this period. India is fast emerging country as a world leader in the field of IT and there is a huge demand for skilled professionals, not only in the IT sector but also in industries like insurance, BPO, banking, and manufacturing among others. The University Vice Chancellor Dr M Ramanathan said that 'these two job oriented programmes will help students to understand the critical issues in enterprise network management, security management and related areas. Further he told that due to globalization, lot of multinational organisations are expanding their operations across the country and the job opportunities in these areas are a plenty to the qualified in the field.'
Commenting on the launch of the degree programs Ravinder Goyal, Director, IACM SmartLearn Ltd.,said 'We are happy to launch the much awaited B.Sc. and M.Sc. programs through our network of learning centers . With these degree programs our aim is to reach remote locations where there is greater need for skill-based education. While demand for skilled professionals is growing by the day, there is a dearth of quality education in the field at various places. As a result, there has been a sad mushrooming of below average institutes that promise everything but never adhere to their commitments. They churn out professionals who lack the skills to compete in the competitive market. With IACM having its presence all across India, it would be convenient for the students to avail the quality education facilities in Hardware, Enterprise Network and Security Management Systems in their own town, who otherwise would have had to travel to distant locations.'
