This diverse offering is aimed at meeting the evolving needs of the industry and preparing students for the challenges of tomorrow.

Highlighting the significance of this collaboration, Dharmesh Pradhan, Union Minister of Education and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, remarked, “The National Education Policy (NEP) is on a roll, marking a historic moment where reputed industrial entities join forces with the UGC, top education departments, and premier institutes like IIT Madras. This partnership ensures that all the courses provided will be accredited, further enhancing their value and recognition across the educational and professional spectrum.”

This initiative by IIT Madras and SmartBridge is a landmark step in implementing the NEP’s vision, offering students nationwide access to high-quality, accredited courses that bridge the gap between academia and industry.
