Research labs of three major engineering colleges – Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology (Bangalore), JSS Academy of Technical Education (Bangalore) and Chennai Institute of Technology (CIT), Chennai, are now powered with NVIDIA Quadro GPUs. The company has partnered with these colleges to upgrade their existing Computer Aided Design Laboratories (CAD), to create a talent pool that is ready to take advantage of the booming Engineering and Design industry. NASSCOM pegs this market to reach between $37-45 billion by 2020.
These advanced labs facilitate students to evolve concepts, gain first-hand experience and learn key design applications to get a better understanding of the designing industry. Here, students get insights into Design Workflows, Complex Model Visualization, Designs Flaws and learn how to collaborate using 3D models for better and swifter decision making. This initiative has also enhanced the colleges’ reputation – which in turn helps them attract more students and recruiters every year.
“Employability of Engineering Students is a major concern with an average of only 25% getting a job immediately after graduation. NVIDIA platforms allow students to learn on the best tools available, apply correct methodologies and take advantage of the latest advances in GPU technologies. This helps them hone their skills and get ready to work in the Industry, from day one.” said Vishal Dhupar, Managing Director – South Asia, NVIDIA.
