Apple Sets-up State-of-the-Art iOS Development Lab at Galgotias University, Noida

In a momentous collaboration, Apple has inaugurated its highly anticipated iOS Development Lab at Galgotias University in Noida, UP. The inauguration took place on February 20th, marking a significant stride towards fostering innovation and nurturing the next generation of iOS developers.

Earlier in September last year, the iOS Student Developer programme, an industry and academia partnered initiative, was launched to grow quality iOS talent in India and has since expanded to Galgotias University.

As a result of this partnership, students enrolled in the programme gain access to Mac computers, while each team receives iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches for development and testing purposes. Additionally, they benefit from learning materials provided by Apple and industry best practices shared by Infosys.

The facility's layout deviates from typical classrooms, resembling more of a corporate office. Galgotia elaborates to Joswiak that this design facilitates easier interaction between faculty members and students throughout the entire floor.

The iOS Development Lab, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including 100 iMacs, is poised to serve as a hub for innovation and collaboration. It offers students the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning and the practical application of iOS development principles, thereby preparing them for success in the ever-evolving tech industry.

Apple Senior Vice President, Greg Joswiak, shared on Twitter, stating, "Today marked the grand opening of the iOS Development Lab at Galgotia University in Delhi. I loved meeting with the next generation of iOS developers and seeing the lab โ€” outfitted with 100 iMacs."

Students who are part of the programme get access to Mac and each team gets access to iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watch for development and testing, while they leverage learning resources from Apple and industry best practices from Infosys.

Dr. Dhruv Galgotia, CEO of Galgotias University, emphasised the transformative impact of the iOS Development Lab on the university's teaching and learning pedagogy. He remarked, "Working for Apple has truly been an inspirational and enriching experience โ€” not only for the students but also for the faculty and leadership team at Galgotias. The quest for astute perfection, eye for micro-detail, and the intelligence behind design has truly been an enlightening experience. We at Galgotias aspire to emulate the same culture within our organisation. The learnings from the iOS Development Centre will have a far-reaching impact well beyond the boundaries of the centre, specifically in the teaching-learning pedagogy of the entire university. The importance of mentorship and guidance in fostering a culture of active learning among students, enables them to develop a global outlook towards problem-solving and prepare for the challenges of the professional world."

This collaboration between Apple and Galgotias University marks a significant milestone in the intersection of education and technology, paving the way for future advancements and empowering aspiring developers to shape the digital landscape with their creativity and expertise.
