IIT Hyderabad + WiSig = Koala NB-IoT chipset. In the process, a wealth of new knowledge has been created. It is imperative that this knowledge be shared with as many young graduates in the country as possible in the shortest possible time.



We plan to train at least 500 engineers in advanced wireless technologies by 2025. The country is moving towards indigenization of 5G networks which requires tens of thousands of skilled man power. This certificate program will help address the acute shortage of manpower in this domain.



With Scholarship: Valid Diploma/BSc/B.Tech degree or equivalent from any branch of Science/ Engineering. Final year project students willing to spend at least 6 months in the program (with permission from their institute). Scholarship will be provided only to those who clear the Offline written test .

Without Scholarship: Anyone willing to pay the fee for Module 1 and spending at least 2 months in the program.
