In a new initiative, BSNL has partnered with Oracle to strengthen its summer vocational training programme for engineering students. Under the terms of the partnership, BSNL will incorporate Oracle’s technology workshop in its training programme.

This is the first time that BSNL has engaged with an external organisation such as Oracle and introduced new curriculum content to enable students’ exposure to the latest technology trends relevant in the telecom industry.

The workshops, which are being embedded within the structure of BSNL's course content for the summer vocational programme for engineering students, will include a one-day programme conducted by Oracle on upcoming technology trends.

BSNL runs programmes related to telecom technologies for engineering students during their summer vacations. These programmes are aimed at providing exposure to relevant telecom technology trends and practices to students as they prepare to enter the workforce in the telecom industry. They give students an overview of working in the telecommunication sector and include field visits to telephone exchanges, mobile towers and systems labs of BSNL.

Neeraj Verma, general manager, training, BSNL, said, “We are glad to be working with Oracle in our effort to bring industry-relevant education to engineering students across India. Our engagement with Oracle is an important initiative that will help supplement our efforts in building a skilled workforce for the telecom sector in India.”

In the first phase, the workshops will be held at BSNL training centres in Ghaziabad, Pune, Trivandrum, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata from June to August 2013.

BSNL will connect students in other centres/field units to these workshops via web platform. Last year, over 100,000 students across India got associated with the summer programme from BSNL, via multiple platforms.
