Microsoft on Thursday announced the launch of the Microsoft Academia Accelerator, a new programme where the software company will collaborate with the faculty at 10 leading Indian engineering colleges to enhance the computer science curriculum in select areas.

Speaking at the launch in Hyderabad, Vinod Anantharaman, Head of Business Management, Microsoft India, said that the new programme will expose students to important technology trends and practices earlier, during their formative years, thereby preparing them with vital skills and experiences that will enrich their careers and fuel innovation and impact from India.
The program has two main components—a series of workshops that span a wide spectrum of topics relevant to the modern-day high technology industry, and a series of student hackathons which give all students at these campuses an opportunity to work collaboratively in team environments to build modern, real-world applications that leverage the latest Microsoft platforms including Mobile and Cloud.
Workshops are tailored to the curriculum at each partner college, based on the needs of the computer science faculty and their specific asks, and get delivered by seasoned Microsoft engineers who are domain experts on that particular area.
