Only the duration and teaching modalities have changed, but the program as a whole will remain as is, with the same rigour of grooming industry-ready professionals for the workforce of tomorrow.

The course has been designed to ensure our students, even those who are starting from scratch, develop mastery of their subjects and even pursue a specialization if they so choose. The course is ideally to be completed in one year. However, if a student fails to achieve a mastery in any subject (a score of 80%), the student can retake the course as well. However, the program must be completed within a span of two-years at most. This allows for the flexibility our students look for, while also enabling hyperlearning, as the need of the hour for the workforce of tomorrow.
