Certificate in Information Technology

International Institute of Information Technology - Hyderabad in collaboration with the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) has introduced an IT Certificate program for students in engineering colleges to enhance the quality of IT education. In view of the aforementioned objective a teacher training program has been setup for aspiring teachers and faculty from engineering colleges who can administer the Certificate in Information Technology (CIT) program for the students at their respective colleges.


“ To enhance the quality of IT education in engineering colleges ”


“ To setup a teacher training program which will provide training to faculty who will train and mentor 12,000+ students per year in engineering colleges to be industry-ready ”

The CIT course is conducted in the 'Learning-by-doing' methodology, which provides hands-on experience. It bridges the gap between theory and practice thereby enabling the student to understand the concepts better and apply them in project-centered scenarios similar to what is being followed in the industry. A mentor to student ratio of 1:10 is followed. Shown below is the retention rate of various learning modes:

  • Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

    A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

    Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.

    Five quacking zephyrs jolt my wax bed. Flummoxed by job, kvetching W. zaps Iraq. Cozy sphinx waves quart jug of bad milk. A very bad quack might jinx zippy fowls. Few quips galvanized the mock jury box. Quick brown dogs jump over the lazy fox. The jay, pig, fox, zebra, and my wolves quack! Blowzy red vixens fight for a quick jump.
