Why should a student participate in TGMC? TGMC is a contest that encourages the following characteristics

TGMC is a contest that encourages the following characteristics in the students:

Team work – because this is one of the biggest challenge IT industry faces today. This is taken care of by working as team in TGMC.

Self study – IT Industry demands versatility in technologies learnt, hence self study is one aspect that is primary to support this demand. Students may or may not get a opportunity to attend the workshop on IBM technologies but would get a lot of opportunity to learn things on your own.

Documentation – One of the big challenges that is lacking among the Indian students. This is taken care of by asking students to submit various documents on different timelines.

Following timelines – Another major requirement of the IT industry. This is taken care off by asking students to submit different aspects of project on time.

Adoption of best practices in IT industry – Lack of industrial exposure and IT best practices is one of the point which IT industry
