Electronics & ICT Academy (E & ICT Academy) at IIT Kanpur was established in 2016 in partnership with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India. It is mandated to provide industry focused and industry-driven hands-on courses in electronics & ICT. E & ICT Academy strives to narrow the gap between the academic approach to electronics and ICT domains as currently provided by the educational institutions and the practically oriented approach as demanded by the industry. It intends to work towards enhancing the domain expertise of interested faculties with a special focus on the faculties of the three northern states of U.P., Haryana, Punjab and the two union territories of Delhi and Chandigarh, through a continuous engagement model with courses upgraded regularly.

Though the courses are open to all, a special preference will be given to faculty from the three northern states of U.P., Haryana, Punjab and the two union territories of Delhi and Chandigarh. Currently, the academy is offering a variety of courses in the field of Information Technology, Electronics and Management domains, with several courses in the pipeline to be launched soon. We are offering a wide variety of courses for beginners as well as experts in R Programming, Python Programming, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Data Mining and many more. Also, there is a variety of courses available in Hindi as well.
