DOEACC – Bringing Quality Computer Education within Reach of people. DOEACC is an autonomous entity of the Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, Government of India with Head Quarters at New Delhi. It is envisioned to bring the most updated global industry related computer education, within the reach of more and more in the areas of Information, Electronics and Communication Technology (IECT).
Realizing the huge gap in the availability of quality computer professionals to meet India’s ambitious leadership plans in software exports, the society has revolutionized computer knowledge dissemination, by offering its meticulously prepared curriculum through the non-formal sector. A fact that is perhaps best echoed by the wholehearted help to the curriculum, by leading IT professionals and educationists. A USP of the curriculum is a horizontal entry to students from non-accredited institutes, so a student with a certain minimum level of computer knowledge need not start at the foundation ‘O’ level. The courses define from Entry Level to M.Tech Degree level:
- Certificate Course on Computer Concepts (CCC)
- Foundation (O) level
- Advanced Diploma (A) level
- MCA Degree equivalent (B) level and,
- M.Tech Degree (C) level.
These courses are further reviewed and enhanced on a continual basis to suit changing industry needs and in line with technology trends, complying with the requirements of ISO 9001-2000.
DOEACC Society is implementing a joint Scheme of All India Council for Technical Education and Department of Information Technology (formerly Department of Electronics (DOE)), Government of the country.
