Today any enthusiastic learner can be proficient in programming languages such as Python. The web is overflowing with paid and free tools to promote easy learning access to all. Students can learn to code through free software such as VS Code. YouTube videos, practice routines, online coaches, engineering peers, and professionals are easily available resources. However, to understand algorithms and data structures to develop software programs that have a real-world impact, computer science enthusiasts require in-person mentorship. However, learning through the internet does not guarantee high-paying jobs either.

Furthermore, to interview for the positions of Software Developer and Program Architect, Computer Science enthusiasts must have a strong foundation in mathematical academic courses and various systems courses; such as, 

  1. Operating systems
  2. Computer networks
  3. Database Management Systems
  4. Computer Architecture
  5. Logic Design

In addition to a thorough understanding of concepts, students need to hold specialisations and expertise. Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Cloud computing are some of the in-demand branches of being a 21st-century Computer Science major. To stand out in the global tech industry, students have to hustle to be on the top of their game.

Undergraduate Degrees: Minds-On & Hands-On?

Engineering enthusiasts may self-study and even bag high-ranking roles in the industry, but not everyone is able to do so. Lack of mentorship, peer learning, out-of-classroom sessions and real-world industry-based project experience become the domineering shortcomings of students. Industry exposure and its skill requirements are something that students experience when working in the industry.

As a next step, it is important to shortlist an institute and program that provides students with campus and student facilities along with a curriculum that delivers industry-relevant skills. Conventional undergraduate degree programs are often teacher-centric and promote rote learning over out-of-classroom experiences. Undergraduate education is more than often a career-defining decision. Paper credentials and qualifications play an important role for many. Hence making it is important to pick a prestigious institute to pursue undergraduate studies. But these universities more than often deliver a weak curriculum. The programs offered fail to include skilling courses that enable students to land high-paying software developer IT jobs. As a result, students end up working in non-technical roles at a low-paying placement salary.

Kalvium is India’s 1st Liberal Engineering Program that teaches you essential industry-relevant skills that help you land high-paying jobs.

Liberate the Engineer in You, Be #EngineeredDifferently

The harsh reality students face is that paper credentials often fail them in industry competition. Engineering graduates and trained professionals equipped with in-demand tech skills and real-world experience bag lucrative jobs. On the other hand, underskilled graduates end up with underpaid jobs and mere certifications. Kalvium introduces a 4-year on-campus program for Computer Science aspirants in Coimbatore. The Kalvium program enables students to thrive in the tech industry as successful employees and leaders. As a result, students master the knowledge and skills of a Full Stack Developer by the end of 1st year of the study itself. 

Kalvium Program Highlights
  • Curriculum designed by the leading CXOs of the Tech Industry
  • Latest technologies that make you a Full-Stack Developer even before you Graduate
  • 24*7 On-Campus Mentorship that enables you to become a Future Tech Leader 
Kalvium Program Outcomes
  • Assured End of 1st Year Internships
  • Assured stipends starting from INR 15,000 per month from years 2 to 4 (up to INR 8 Lakhs)
  • Graduate with a 3-year work experience and bag a 3x Better Pay Package during Final Placements

We are home to computer science and engineering aspirants who are passionate about their software industry and tech leader dreams. At Kalvium, admissions do not require paper credentials and qualifications. Challenging conventional undergraduate engineering degrees, Kalvium delivers a student-centric liberal learning approach. While professors and subject matter experts deliver the best of classroom learning, mentorship from industry professionals is essential to becoming a successful software engineer. Hackathons and simulated work environments are key to developing a deeper understanding of classroom concepts. While conventional engineering degrees promote memorization and rote learning, Kalvium promotes a minds-on hands-on learning experience boosting the critical thinking skills of all students. 

High-Paying Jobs with Kalvium

Students and parents often take financial loans to cover the cost of undergraduate education in a good private university. Well-deserving high-paying placements are their only concern for undergraduate courses such as Computer Science & Engineering. However, many government and private universities operate as educational bureaucracies and fail to deliver the necessities of an educational institution; i.e., practical hands-on learning, real-world work experience, nurturing a growth mindset incorporating essential workplace soft skills, and high-paying final year placement opportunities. As a result, students end up working in low-paying jobs due to a lack of skills and experience. Student aspirations are crushed and parents face a financial burden because of a certified degree that failed short of its promises. 

Kalvium is designed by leading CXOs of the tech industry. Alongside subject matter experts, students learn in a real-world work environment and are trained by mentors with 2+ years of experience in the Software-IT sector. Kalvium provides computer science aspirants with a truly experiential program where they learn to manage their finances, work on industry projects with real-time results, and develop a work-life balance from the onset of their education.

NOTE: Kalvium is backed by India’s top technology leaders including Sujeet Kumar (Co-founder at Udaan), Kunal Shah (Founder at CRED), Nithin Kamath (CEO at Zerodha), Rahul Chari (CTO at PhonePe), and many more. It is brought to you by founders of Coimbatore-based Startups FACE Prep & ProGrad who have trained and placed >50 Lakh students over the last 13 years.
