-- Incept Training Academy has conducted summer courses in the past in association with universities like KIIT, and has established as the first such institute providing expertise in Biometrics and Surveillance. But it has been focused only on specific Indian colleges in the past, and is now expanding towards involving students from all corners from India as well as abroad.
Today, Biometrics is a word which is making a unique mark in the security and HR industry alike, and one can see that there is a skill-set waiting to be tapped by education hungry Indians from all parts of India. As per a recent survey submitted to NSDC, there is a scope of 8 lac skilled professionals in the Biometric & Surveillance sector by next 10 years. Which means, its needed that more people get trained in the skill of understanding, operating and maintaining Biometric and Surveillance Systems.
A leading professor from IIT Bombay, Dr C Amarnath, the man known as Father of Robotics in India has expressed his support and mentoring for such a course which is aimed at helping India get more job-ready. Support has flown in from various other quarters as well including scholars at MSU where such a course is already common and successful. Going by the history of industry-academia interaction in India, we hope that many more colleges emulate MSU and Rice University from US and build an environment of Biometrics in their educational premises.
And Incept Training Academy is leading the way towards taking this further, by trying to provide high end industrial exposure to its students; and informing the world what has already been quoted Nandan Nilekani (with reference to UID-Aadhar Project): India is going to be the world's first Biometric nation.
