ICT Academy is an initiative of the Government of India in collaboration with the state Governments and industries. It is a not-for-profit society and a joint venture under the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model. It was started to meet the skill requirements of the industry and to generate more employment especially in tier 2 and 3 towns, the rural parts of the country. The organization was formed with representations from the State Government of Tamil Nadu, leading companies in the ICT industry, and National Association of Software Services Companies NASSCOM in India.
With training of teachers and students as the primary objective, ICT Academy has been working through a seven-pillar program in the areas of Faculty Development, Student Skill Development, Entrepreneurship Development, Youth Empowerment, Industry-Institute Interaction, Digital Empowerment and Research & Publications.
