Campus Connect Program

About
  • Campus Connect is an industry-academia partnership initiative launched by Infosys in May 2004.The Campus Connect initiative aims to enhance the education level of engineering students, nationwide and thus increase the employability of these engineers. As a part of this initiative, Infosys shares with partner colleges its proven courseware, methodology and education experiences. Campus Connect thus helps partner colleges groom Industry Ready Engineers.
  • Foundation Program (FP) 3.0 is the latest and enhanced version of Foundation Program released in year 2009. It is designed for entry level students who on completion will be better prepared to work on real-life customer projects in IT domain. The heart of this initiative is to enable partner colleges to deliver Foundation Program 3.0. The Foundation Program will be administered at the Campus Connect partner colleges. This program is to enhance the IT industry specific basic knowledge and skills of the students of engineering colleges.
  • The Foundation Program 3.0 is designed by the Education & Research department of Infosys primarily to train and prepare fresh engineering graduates who join the company, to take up challenging real time projects. The Foundation Program courses will be taught directly by the partner college faculty, who are enabled by the Infosys Campus Connect Team. Campus Connect also provides the necessary courseware and support to implement, scale-up and sustain the program.

CAMPUS CONNECT FOUNDATION PROGRAM 3.1

WHAT’S NEW IN FP 3.1

  1. New Course elements - Object Oriented Paradigm using Java
  2. Integrated Project with technology option as Open Source and Java
  3. More Practical aspect of Project Development using open source tools

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Since the inception of Campus Connect, Campus Connect partner colleges have experienced Foundation Program 1.0 (comprised of 8 courses), Foundation Program 2.0 (inclusive of Client Server Concepts) along with process improvements from email based model to Portal based tracking.

The enhancements on the Foundation Program offerings and processes are based on the changes in the Foundation Program at Infosys Global Education Center and the feedback and inputs received from the Campus Connect Partner Colleges.

The new Foundation program is now comprised of SIX courses namely,

  1. Introduction to Computer Systems (ICS): This course commences with insight into real life projects and various levels in IT, role of a Software Engineer in IT Industry. It explains the importance of training and working of computers. ICS is a selflearning, reference course.  
  2. Operating System Concepts (OS): This course introduces Operating System Concepts like Memory, Process and Device management. It also makes the participants understand the concepts of Inter-process communication and deadlocks.
  3. Problem Solving Techniques (PST): This course introduces various problem solving approaches, development and implementation of algorithms and Data Structures.  
  4. Programming & Testing (P&T): This course introduces programming paradigms and coding standards for programming. It also gives understanding of the compilation steps and the process involved. Additionally this course covers Testing Techniques and Software Development Life Cycles. This course also gives exposure to Integrated Project Development approach for foundation program. User Interface Design (UID) is included in the Integrated Project section as a self-study. This module helps building competency in developing most suitable user interfaces for the integrated project.
  5. Object Oriented Concepts (OOC) with Java: This course includes problem solving through Object Oriented approach and Implementation using Data Structures. It also gives OOC paradigm using basic Java as programming language.
  6. Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS): This course introduces the basic concepts and terminology of RDBMS, explains database design using Entity Relationship (ER) modelling and Normalization, SQL commands.
