Launched in July, 2017, the Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for IT & Logistics at Vishakhapatnam is a state-of the- art IT and Logistics training Institute. The institute is set up by Tech Mahindra Foundation, the CSR wing of Tech Mahindra Ltd with a mission to create a cadre of well qualified trained professionals to meet the demand of the IT and Logistics sectors.

The Need

The Indian port sector plays a vital role in sustaining growth in the country’s trade and commerce. The maritime trade in India has a huge share in terms of both volume and value in the country’s overall trade statistics. The industry is booming and is expected to rise phenomenally. It is gaining momentum as it provides employment to 22 million people across India.

The state of Andhra Pradesh has the 2nd longest coastline of 974 km in the eastern peninsular India and handles 13% of India’s total port traffic. Many huge ports are already operational and many more are expected to start in the coming future. Hence, the shipping and logistics sector is expected to generate more employment. To cater to this rising demand, it is important to have trained and well qualified professionals.   

With this view, we started Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for IT & Logistics in Vishakhapatnam. The SMART Campus in Visakhapatnam has a complete training centre on par with corporate work environment. The Academy is fully equipped with the latest software and highly qualified industry experts from IT and Logistics sector. An additional attention is paid to developing soft skills, spoken English and Personality development training and on job training. We also assure placement assistance with a dedicated placement team, which ensures that each student graduating from the Academy receives support in finding a job.
