Speaking about the NMIMS-CET 2021 announcement, Dr. Ramesh Bhat, Vice-Chancellor, SVKM’s NMIMS University, said, The last few months have shown the need for highly-qualified professionals in engineering and pharmacy. Engineers, particularly in the fields of Computers, IT, Electronics, and Telecommunications will be instrumental in the coming years, as technology continues to disrupt every sector. In 2020, NMIMS collaborated with Virginia Tech, USA, for 311, a unique, coordinated initiative where candidates have an opportunity to earn 3 degrees (B.Tech., BS and MS).
Recently, NMIMS launched B.Tech. in Data Science and MBA Tech. in Artificial Intelligence at the Shirpur campus. The other sector which has seen a spike in demand for professionals is the pharmaceutical sector. With India poised to lead the field globally post-COVID, this sector will need leaders, innovators, and experts who can lead from the front. The integrated MBA Tech. and MBA Pharma programs are ideal for those who want to specialise in these emerging fields immediately after Grade 12. These integrated programs provide students with immersive learning in the area, honing their capabilities and making them industry-ready.
