Tamil Nadu government to set up IT academy

The Tamil Nadu goverment will set up an IT Academy to improve the standards of computer education in the State, Chief Minister M Karunanidhi announced today.

Inaugurating Connect-2006, a three-day conference organised by the CII here, he said the academy would focus on upgrading the curriculum of graduate and post-graduate courses in keeping with present needs.

Stating the IT revolution had no relevance if it did not improve the lives of the poorest, he said ICT could provide opportunities for touching the untouched and approaching the unapproached.
'My government is deeply committed to winning the war against hunger, deprivation, want, inequality and unemployment. We are ceaselessly striving towards this cause', he said and appealed to Connect-2006 to pledge itself to this cause.

Attributing the growth of the IT industry in the State to the availability of skilled human resources, Mr Karunanidhi said to strengthen this, the Union HRD Ministry would set up an Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing - a National Centre of Excellence.

The establishment of this prestigious institution in the State would create a new chapter in the development of the IT industry.
