A coding and testing competition was held at Camellia Institute of Technology, Madhyamgram on 14th November 2014. This was organized jointly by Camellia Group and a renowned IT product company from Kolkata – InSync Solutions, under its initiative called CAMPUSeCONNECT. With this initiative, InSync’s objective is to bridge the gap between the IT industry and the academy sector.
Atul Gupta (Founder and CEO, InSync) and Devendra Pratap Singh (COO, InSync) strongly believe that there is a need for interaction between the institutes and the industry. With CAMPUSeCONNECT, they plan to engage students in various ways and build a sustainable partnership with education institutes to mutual benefit by producing “industry ready” recruits.
