Big Data Centre of Excellence has been set up at Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College. Huge opportunities are available in this technology in the software industry for IT professionals. The technology is not yet included in most of the university curriculums including UPTU. Hence the Centre is likely to improve employability of students of our college and other colleges. Research scholars can also use the facility to implement their ideas.
The Centre is equipped with fully functional cluster of 12 Data Nodes and 1 Name Node. The team working here has gained enough expertise to guide the students and faculty who want to work in this technology.
The Centre has recently conducted a course and workshop on Big Data Technology the details of which are given as here under:
