Guest lecture at UOM by Infosys Experts

We had a guest lecture on Software Processes and Practices as used in the Software Industry at the University of Mauritius on Friday 6th April 2007, delivered by experts from Infosys Technlogies Limited, Mauritius. Mr Vinod Wakade, Operations Incharge, Infosys Mauritius was also present and has shared views and experiences with the UOM Computer Science and Information Systems students.

The Guest lecture was delivered by Mr Jimut Basa, Project Manager at Infosys Mauritius, who has more than 7 years of experience in Software Development for European Clients (UK, Switzerland, Belgium and Netherland). His presentation was mainly geared towards software engineering practices in the software industry including requirements engineering, estimation, quality management, knowledge management, and global delivery model.  He has given an industry view of the different concepts and techniques discuss in the Software Engineering modules.

The presentation was followed by a few questions from UOM academics and students. Both Mr Vinod Wakade and Mr Jimut Basa was of the opinion that qualities required in order to work for Infosys is mainly analytical, problem solving, and good behavioural skills. They also commented that UOM graduates are doing very well at Infosys.

I thank both Mr Vinod Wakade and Mr Jimut Basa for the enriching presentation and for sharing their experiences with us.

Feedback from students who followed the presentation are welcomed.

    Very interesting lecture! We’ve learn things today…(we also learn from the usual software engineering lectures, but this one was somewhat different).
    What I liked most is that I received a kind of confirmation: What we are learning in our Software Engineering module at university, that’s the very thing being used in the software industry and I think this greatly encourages us to put in more effort.
    If only all other modules could involve these kinds of activities….

    indeed we learnt quite a lot of things BUT about

    “….qualities required in order to work for Infosys is mainly analytical, problem solving, and good behavioural skills…..”

    i dont think we are trained much about this (our analytical skills…etc)

    For example for pre-interviews, the long list of questions that we have to answer/attempt is very tough and the time frame to do it is quite limited. These questions are mainly mathematical problem solving type.

    So, what can be done on part of uom/cse to improve students’s analytical…skills etc??

    ALSO thank you Sir for organising such an event, its has been much appreciated.

    Nice initiative indeed to invite guest lecturers to UoM. Such practice should be encourage and if possible, made an integral part of our curriculum. It gives us the opportunity to get a feel of how things are in the industry and the companies coming in for presentations etc also get a chance to probe us, students and know what we are worth.

    Once again, laudable initiative.
    Cheers!

    Since when do you know that?
    esp. with How long are they and the level of difficulty…

    This will be communicated to you in due time, somewhere around June 2007 for the Infosys Mauritius recruitment.
