BASIS opens institute to groom graduates for jobs
BASIS, the country's ICT trade body, has opened a training institute on its Karwanbazar premises on Monday, mainly to prepare fresh graduates for employment.
The institute -- named BASIS Institute of Technology and Management (BITM) -- will provide managerial and technical courses to IT graduates and professionals, tailored to equip them for on-the-job situations.
“Employers of fresh graduates run into trouble, as the academic courses lack the practical dimension that a real-world job demands," Mahboob Zaman, outgoing president of BASIS said.
Universities educate on the basics but companies require a much advanced know-how, so training becomes a must, according to Zaman.
“Without the hands-on experience the graduates struggle to perform for their companies,” he said, citing examples of Indian companies which have facilities specifically to train the hires from campus recruitment.
BITM's strong suit, the incoming BASIS president AKM Fahim Mashroor says, is that all the trainers are IT professionals, with many being chief technology officers of various companies.
But the tuition fees, Mashroor asserts, will be at least one third that of other commercial institutions in the country.
“BASIS will not make money through BITM.”
The institute is currently offering short courses lasting 1-2 days to 6-month long diplomas.
