In order to inculcate the changes that have taken place in the industrial sector into studies, there have been various discussions held by the state government over the past few years. As a part of the transformation, soon, colleges across Maharashtra will have courses about Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Analytics and Cyber Security included in the students’ curriculum.

With an ambition to assist students in understanding the industrial sector and providing them with practical knowledge, the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) initiative has included various practical courses. Accordingly, RUSA had organised a meeting of the teachers and principals of various colleges across India where Education Minister Vinod Tawde and State RUSA representative Meeta Rajivlochan were present.
