The world is aging, but India is growing younger. There is a “Demographic Dividend” that the country could hope for, and ultimately exploit. Presently India’s median age is 27.6 years.  Almost 59% of the total population falls in the age group of 15 to 54 years. The International Labour Organization (ILO) has predicted that by 2020, India would have 116 million workers in the work starting age bracket of 20 – 24 years as compared to China’s 94 Million. It is further estimated that the average age in India would be 29 years as against 40 years in USA, 46 years in Europe and 47 years in Japan.

Thus, the “Demographic Dividend” in India needs to be exploited not only to expand the production possibility frontier but also to meet the skilled manpower requirements of in India and abroad. There is no escaping the fact that a sound Basic Education is prerequisite to empower each individual in the quest to pursue these economic opportunities. In order to take advantage of the economy of 21st century, Good, Effective & Relevant Education and Skill Development, is imperative for reaping benefits of demographic dividends.

Electronics and the IT Industry are the two main areas where there is a huge demand of trained and skilled manpower. In order to bridge this gap between the demand and supply of skilled manpower, NIELIT Rupnagar offers a basket of courses to the aspirants from the basic to advanced level in the field of IECT.

Training programmes have been designed with utmost care, keeping in mind the current requirement of the industry. These courses will be very useful for the students and will help them to hone their skills and ultimately achieve the technical expertise that they always dreamt of. These courses offered by NIELIT Rupnagar would equip the youth of the region with requisite skills, leading to greater employability and enhancement of their livelihood.

The Centre shall also promote design and development of electronics products under ‘Make-In-India’ and Electronic System Design and Manufacturing Policy frameworks through high-end training programmes.

Wish a very warm welcome to the Centre.
