STT Global Data Centres India (STT GDC India), as part of its CSR initiative, unveiled an Experience Centre in Bengaluru in collaboration with Schneider Electric India Foundation (SEIF).
This initiative aims to provide students with practical training on data centre-related projects in a live simulation data centre environment.
For training, STT GDC India has partnered with Don Bosco Tech Society (DB Tech) and Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF), two leading institutes in Bengaluru.
Over 50 students have been shortlisted from each institute for the training program combining classroom with experiential learning at the Experience Centre.
Sumit Mukhija, CEO, STT GDC India said, “The purpose of this Experience Centre at our Centre of Excellence is to provide a platform for interested candidates to up-skill in alignment with industry. A comprehensive curriculum has been developed by a team from STT GDC India in close collaboration with the faculty of the partnering institutes. ”
Anil Chaudhry, CEO- Schneider Electric India said, “Through this collaboration with STT GDC India, we seek to reach out to every segment of the society with the necessary training and education programmes required for tech empowerment and sustainable livelihood.”
A total of 11,000 sq. ft. of area housed in the STT Bengaluru DC 3 facility dedicated to training and development provides a live simulation experience which will allow participating students to derive valuable hands-on experience with relevant equipment. This allows students to gain an in-depth understanding combined with practical knowledge that would put them in good stead to navigate various operational scenarios in their future jobs.
Behavioural and soft skills training will also be embedded in the course content to ensure a holistic learning experience and industry readiness amongst the participating students.
