Hyderabad, May 21 (UNI) IIIT-Hyderabad (IIIT-H) and TalentSprint announced the All India roll out of their popular executive programs in AI and Machine Learning (MI) as well as blockchain and distributed ledger technologies on Tuesday.

Since their launch in 2018 in Hyderabad and Bengaluru, these hybrid executive programs, with their innovative onsite/online format, have attracted industry professionals in large numbers and achieved a high completion rate.
The first batch of the all India hybrid Executive Programme will start from August 3 and the intake was 180, they informed.
The duration of course was 18 weeks and fees will be Rs two lakhs, they said and adding the program is led by collaborative faculty from Academia, Industry and Global Bluechip institutions .
The unique five-step pedagogy of Masterclass Lectures, Hands-on Labs, Guided Mentorship, Immersive Hackathons and Industry Workshops has differentiated these programs, they said.
The All India rollout is in response to an explosive demand for deep-tech expertise currently sweeping through knowledge professionals in all major technology hubs of the country.
In particular, the demand for competencies such as AI, Machine Learning and Blockchain have been climbing rapidly over the last twelve months, with signs of further acceleration, they said.
The leading analyst firm Gartner has forecasted that AI business value will reach 3.9Tdollars by 2022 and Blockchain business value will reach 3.1T dollars by 2030, they stated.
According to IIIT-Hyderabad Director PJ Narayanan, by extending these executive programs across the nation, we believe the give and take between our institution and industry will reach a whole new level.
Commenting on the occasion, TalentSprint CEO and Managing Director Dr Santanu Paul, said '' 2018 was the launch year for the cities Hyderabad and Bengaluru, and we used that opportunity to perfect these deep-tech programs. We successfully combined theory with practice, academic rigour with industry experience, onsite with online. The substantial popularity of these programs has encouraged us to launch this updated nationwide format.
The click and mortar model of select campus visits and ongoing online engagement makes it very convenient for busy tech professionals, irrespective of their location'', he added.
