VISAKHAPATNAM: A Head Start Programme for engineering students in Business Process Management was inaugurated at MVGR College of Engineering (MVGRCE) in Vizianagaram by Madhavan Seshadri, vice-president of Virtusa Consulting Services (Business Consulting and BPM). Aimed at improving the readiness of students in BPM technology, Virtusa Corporation, under the aegis of Pegasystems, launched the programme through Virtusa’s Centre of Excellence sanctioned to MVGRCE. Virtusa has five such centres in the world.
Speaking on the occasion, Madhavan Seshadri said that around 6,000 Pega experts are available in the world, and students of MVGRCE would be joining this elite group. It is one of the best starts for any career in IT industry as the demand for Pega experts is going to increase throughout the next decade.
“Pega experts may also get onsite job opportunities much earlier than other students,” he added. The Centre of Excellence will be instrumental in student level certification, live projects, direct employment opportunities, faculty certifications, and technology conferences.
Pega certified faculty R Ravikanth and Chaitanya from the CSE department at MVGRCE were instrumental in developing the course contents for the upcoming training modules. Principal KVL Raju and correspondent A Raghava Rao were present during the signing of the MoU between Virtusa and MVGRCE for setting up the Centre of Excellence Monday.
In an interactive session with parents and students who got placed in Virtusa, the company’s Graduate Talent Programme manager R Subramanyam Saraswathi Sarma explained the uniqueness of this initiative.
