Physics Wallah (PW) announces the launch of PW Institute of Innovation (PW IOI), a 4-year residential program in Computer Science and AI. Aimed at addressing the critical challenges faced by the Indian software industry, it is strategically located in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India. Designed to make students future ready by equipping them with industry-relevant skills and bridging the demand and supply gap of professionals, along with the employability gap.
The 4 year fully residential program offers a unique and holistic approach to education. With experienced faculty and industry leaders from top companies as mentors, an industry-oriented curriculum, up to 100% scholarships, and real-world projects, students are equipped for success in their professional journey. Personalized guidance, four comprehensive internships, networking opportunities, global exposure and a state-of-the-art campus further enhance the program's effectiveness.
The curriculum has been meticulously designed in a way that is aligned with the technology trends in the evolving market today. Additionally, students have the opportunity to pursue bachelor’s degree in parallel from a premier institute. The degree qualifies individuals to explore opportunities for further education in India or abroad and makes them eligible to appear for competitive examinations.
Vishwa Mohan, CIO at PW & President of PW IOI, said, “It is indeed concerning that despite the exponential growth witnessed in the Indian software industry, the employability rate of Indian engineering graduates has remained relatively low, with only marginal improvement over the years. Additionally, the significant increase in the demand-supply gap for skilled AI and data science professionals further highlights the need for a comprehensive transformation in the learning approach. PW IOI aims to address this issue by empowering professionals with employable and effective skills for the rapidly evolving job market.”
Sudhanshu Kumar, CEO of PW Skills, emphasized “By combining real-world experience with an industry-focused curriculum, we aim to cater to the immediate needs of our students while also bridging the gap between demand and supply in future job opportunities. Towards the end of the course, the institute's placement cell will offer assistance in securing job offers, with partnerships established with over 500 hiring partners including Tata IQ, Siemens, Leadsquared, SAP, Oracle, KPMG, Amazon and others. Previously, PW Skills has placed more than 1500+ learners with an average salary of 22 LPA and top salary of 50 LPA.”
