MindTree Gnanavriksha - A Learning Program

Today we had people from MindTree @ our campus to initiate their ambitious project called 'Gnanavriskha'. It’s an initiative in collaboration with icalibrator to further strengthen their learning relationship with the MindTree Minds (who are yet to join them). The beneficiaries of this project are around 20% of the total students recruited by MindTree this year. MindTree has chosen those colleges which are close to b'lore and where they can visit quite often. Our college happens to be one amongst those few chosen institutes, who have been included in this learning program.

What's in it for us?

1. Unlike other training programs, this isn't going to be a monotonous and one-way lecture delivery model of educating students. It’s going to be a great self learning program. It is what MindTree wants every MindTree mind to get adapted to, before joining the company. It's an attempt to get them ready to face the challenges in an IT industry.

2.Its a very unique modeling that MindTree has adopted, where in the students under this learning program would be divided in to 2 streams viz C and Java. (I have been allotted the Java stream). We would have access to the course material, which is basically a well tailored syllabus by some of the most eminent people of IT industry. It's going to be a learning-by-doing sort of program.

3. It gives students a golden opportunity to showcase their capabilities of taking up challenging projects and completing them on time.

4. It also gives students an opportunity to interact with some elite mentors, with 15+ years of industry experience. They would help the students in case they get stuck at any point in time. I am sure this is a very unique methodology that MindTree has adopted to ensure that students have an exposure to the toughest problems and also access to the 'best brains' of the IT industry.

5. Students can work from any place, which has an access to internet. They can then submit the assignments when they are done with it. Even though it's clearly stated that one can work at his 'own pace', they still have a projected time of completion for each module. I suppose that's what they want us to meet.

What's expected of us?

1. We are expected to devote at least 14 hrs of 'quality time' to this project every week. We would be asked to complete the assignments as soon as we finish a particular module. That's basically intended to hone one's coding skills and also test how better one can implement what one learns.

2. All those who have registered to this project are expected to be honest with their work and no 'fooling around' is entertained. This is to gauge for yourself, where you stand with respect to others at this nick of time. It's very important to be honest with all the assignments.

3. One can discuss a lot on the problems they faced in solving the assignments or completing a mini project at the discussion forums made available for all the project beneficiaries. So I expect a lot of knowledge sharing to take place here.

4. Students would be updating their mentors about the status of their work on a periodical basis, so that the mentors can review the work of students and also send in their feedbacks for improvement (if any).

Apart from this, we would have a face to face interaction with our mentors, once in two months or so. We would also be provided with the tests to help evaluate ourselves. The students are also free to send in feedbacks for any sort of improvisation in the methodology of imparting concepts or a modification in any module of a course material.

Now, why is this whole 'Gnanavriksha' project so enticing and beneficial for me? Apart from the fact that I would anyway be learning these subjects, I have an added advantage. My final year project is based on Java, so it's going to be of an immense help for me to learn this subject in advance and explore the possibilities for improvement of my project at the same time!

I am really looking forward to make the most out of this learning program.

Sounds like the Mindtree program is similar to GNIIT program.

One can learn a lot from that kind of exposure - not only technical skills but also people skills
