NIIT has launched a new course in web app development under its DigiNxt series. The new course is developed through MEAN Stack, which represents a group of open source technologies including MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS and Node.js.
The 14-week course will enable students to develop, test and release web apps embracing interfaces, web server layer, middleware and back-end supported by product engineering culture. Participants of the programme are considered to spend at least 70 percent of their time on project work. For this, NIIT has designed two different projects — Online Ticket Booking and Online Cab Booking.
“With the launch of MEAN stack we aim to create full-stack developers for start-ups and product engineering organisations,” said Prakash Menon, president of global skills and careers group, NIIT.
On successful completion of the course, students are claimed to be offered 100 percent placement assistance. Companies like LinkedIn, Netflix and Uber, are already using MEAN Stack that will require relevant talent.
“We at NIIT with over 35 years of experience and a keen understanding of the changing skills requirement of the industry, are committed to offering a series of industry-aligned training programs in digital transformation. To cater to this need we recently launched, Java Enterprise Apps with Dev Ops, which has received an overwhelming response from the industry and in continuation to it we now introduce the MEAN Stack programme,” Menon added.
Admissions for the new MEAN Stack course will begin at NIIT centres starting June 24.
In addition to the new web app development programme, NIIT offers skill development courses in various digital fields such as Java Enterprise Engineering with DevOps, Big Data and Data Sciences, Cyber-Security, Database systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and Virtual Reality. These courses are targeted at graduates and graduating students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
