Today education is at an inflection point. Like other industries, Education as a vertical need to embrace new methodologies across the spectrum - curriculum, infra, processes, and people.The conference will focus on the current state of ICT education in India; and how engineering schools are upping the ante to stay relevant to the market demands.
Dataquest recently announced the survey of the engineering colleges in education sector and listed the Top 100 engineering colleges in the country.
We estimate that the value of IT consumption by education sector primarily engineering colleges in India would be in range of $1B upwards and it is growing at a faster clip than before.
The top priorities for tech spending at engineering colleges and which are directly related to educational outcomes are:

  • Create the infrastructure for delivering new curricula in technology
  • Creating engaging educational experience that integrates physical and digital worlds or enabling the digital transformation of education
  • Enabling new forms of collaboration among students, between students and faculty, and between institutions and industry
  • Providing greater access to classes, curricula and other educational content
  • Covers Technology, Skill Development and Future of engineering Education
  • Seeking efficiency and effectiveness in administration and operations

Key decision-makers from more than 100 T-Schools round the country would get together to discuss strategic issues related to tech education in the country and the role of tech in enhancing the competitiveness of the sector at the Dataquest T-Schools Conference & Awards.
This group represents the powerful group of buyers of technology in higher education. They would buy technology products, solutions, and services ranging from IT infrastructure, cloud services, collaboration technologies, applications, analytics, AI, and AR/VR technologies amongst others.
