LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 4 September 2013 – Reva Institute of Technology and Management will be offering IEEE Computer Society software development preparation and training products to its students as an IEEE Computer Society as a Registered Education Provider.
Based in Bangalore, REVA will offer IEEE Computer Society's SWEBOK Certificate Program (SCP) courses and credentials to its students.
"The institution is glad to associate with IEEE Computer Society in order to facilitate students to bridge the gap between industry and academia by conducting certification programs like SWEBOK, workshops, and invited talks in the emerging technologies, project training and development, and competitions," said Dr. N Rana Pratap Reddy, Principal of REVA Institute of Technology and Management said.
Reva Group of Educational Institutions, established in 2004, offers engineering courses in computer science and engineering, electronics and communications engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, information science and engineering, and civil engineering. The courses are affiliated with Visveswaraya Technological University, Bangalore University, and Karnataka Pre University Board.
The SCP, consisting of four learning modules with 25-plus hours of instruction each, was created to raise a university student's understanding and proficiency of the 15 Knowledge Areas in the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), which provides the basis for IEEE Computer Society software development certifications.
Each completed module will result in a certificate. By completing the four modules, a student will have a solid understanding of the software development lifecycle. This will give students an excellent foundation as they embark on a career in software development, and provide a stepping stone to the CSDA certification.
The CSDA, designed for entry-level software developers, is intended to provide undergraduate computer science and software engineering students their first credential toward a solid career foundation as a software development practitioner. The CSDP, designed for mid-career professionals, helps software developments demonstrate their commitment to the profession and confirms their proficiency in the software development field.
