IT skills training

A one week training programme on ‘IT Skills for Technical Helpers/ Attenders of NIT, Warangal’ was inaugurated by T. Srinivasa Rao, Director, NITW, here on Monday.

Stressing the need for upgrading skills on a regular basis, Prof. Rao said earlier people were distinguished as literate and illiterate. But now, people ask whether someone is computer literate or not. “In the present times, it is very much essential that everyone in NIT has minimum computer knowledge so that their work efficiency can be improved,” he said.

In all 63 employees of NIT were taking part in the training programme, which was sponsored under Technical Education Quality Improvement Program (TEQIP-Phase II).

D.V.S.S. Siva Sarma, Head, Computer Centre, spoke on objectives of the programme. During the programme participants would be given hands-on experience with essential computer literacy. C.S.R.K. Prasad, Academic Coordinator under TEQIP and other Heads of Departments, were also present at the inaugural programme.
