About ACTS

C-DAC set up the Advanced Computing Training School (ACTS) in 1993 to meet the ever-increasing skilled manpower requirements of the Information Communication Technologies (ICT) industry as well as supplement its intellectual resource base for cutting-edge research and development. Over the years C-DAC has designed and delivered various postgraduate and undergraduate degree and diploma programmes. In addition, C-DAC imparts ICT training to state and national governments and agencies, strategic sectors, corporate and industries, foreign countries and international students, based on specific requirements.

Presently C-DAC is offering courses through its own training centres in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mohali, Mumbai, Noida, Pune and Thiruvananthapuram, and its network of Affiliated Training Centres (ATC) spread across the country. Each year, thousands of students and professionals are trained at these centres, enhancing their knowledge-base and equipping them with the latest methodologies in advanced computing so as to make their mark in the ICT industry. So far more than a quarter million students have passed out from C-DAC. Many of them today are successful employees of multinational and premier Indian ICT companies, and many of them have become booming entrepreneurs.

C-DAC is committed to nation building and is the first Indian government agency that has expanded its training horizons globally, extending its high quality training services to countries like Armenia, Belarus, Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Dubai, Ghana, Grenada, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lesotho, Mauritius, Myanmar, Seychelles, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
