Wayne County Community College District in Detroit partners with Infosys in fast-track program to produce software engineers
March 13, 2012
The Wayne County Community College District will hold an 18-week intensive training session to produce software engineers, something the school says is a first in the United States.
WCCCD has partnered with Infosys, a global IT consultancy which has performed similar "boot camps" in India, training more than 14,000 entry-level software engineers. Infosys chose WCCCD as a partner because of Southeastern Michigan's growing presence in the IT field, the school says.
"This program not only provides a pathway to a better life for those that participate in it, but provides highly skilled and capable workers to a growing sector of our regional economy," WCCCD chancellor Curtis Ivery said in a news release. 'Win-wins like this are a fundamental part of our mission, and we’re proud to participate in such a vital program with Infosys."
