Stay Ahead of the Curve: Mastering Emerging Technology Skills

Mastering Emerging Technology Skills


Over the past two decades, the world has experienced an incredible change in the blink of an eye. From our mobile devices' portability to the digital world's limitless possibilities, innovation has undergone a seismic shift, bringing us into a time characterised by automation, connection, and incomparable potential. At the heart of this revolution lies the emergence of new technologies, reshaping industries from business to biotech, healthcare to education, and fundamentally altering how we live, work, and interact with the world around us.


Need for the Modern Business Imperative

In 2023, the world's obsession with artificial intelligence reached unprecedented heights, extending outside the domain of information technology and into people's daily lives all across the globe. Although artificial intelligence (AI) is not new, 2023 was a major turning point because of initiatives like OpenAI, which raised awareness of AI's potential among the general public. AI has revolutionised several industries and improved workplace efficiency, affecting every aspect of society and enthralling audiences in IT and non-IT fields.


As industries undergo digital transformation and globalisation accelerates, businesses seek professionals with technical expertise, adaptability, and soft skills. Technical proficiency in data analysis, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity has become more than essential for navigating the increasingly data-driven and interconnected business world. This makes the ability to adapt, innovate, and effectively collaborate with diverse teams’ indispensable traits.


Urgency for Industry-Ready Talent

Unlocking the full potential of the technological revolution centres around the workforce and higher education working together harmoniously and providing a consistent flow of highly qualified individuals into industries. Therefore, it is important to reskill and upskill current professionals and produce fresh talent. Academics are essential to this endeavour because they are the main source of information and skill development.


Nevertheless, deeper collaborations between academia and business are crucial to guarantee that talent stays prepared for the workforce. These partnerships—supported by programs like the National Education Policy NEP 2020—help education match the dynamic corporate demands with student competencies, allowing graduates to enter the workforce with the necessary knowledge and abilities.


TCS iON aims to focus on three key elements:

  • Credit-aligned learning programs: The program is structured in such a way that students can earn credits after completion of the course, based on the hours of learning and performance in the assessments
  • Immersive and experiential learning: The practical components embedded in the program provide hands-on real-life workplace experience 
  • Partnership ecosystem: The program is curated to establish a best-in-class partnership ecosystem, fostering deeper collaborations with academia and industry.
