Is CDAC a Government Organization?

By - Rohit Joshi • 8 months ago • 13.2k views

Can someone tell me if CDAC is a government company? I've been hearing about the placements CDAC degree/diploma holders get after completing the course. Do you think it's worth completing any course from CDAC?

    About CDAC: CDAC stands for Center for Development of Advance Computing (C-DAC).

    CDAC is a government organisation that operates under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. The Government of India formed this organisation back in November 1987 after United States refused to sell India the technology for Cray supercomputer.

    US expressed concern that India will use it to develop nuclear weapons.

    Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, who we interviewed on CrazyEngineers: Dr. Vijay Bhatkar - Father of Indian Supercomputers was the first director of CDAC. Under his leadership and an initial funding of about Rs. 30Cr, India developed the first prototype of the Cray Supercomputer on its own.

    For the course - yes, CDAC students are hired by leading software and electronics companies. Their courses are up to date with the industry developments and students undergo rigerous training. Getting admission in CDAC's reputed centers is bit tough as students have to clear the C-CAT.

    I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you want to know more.

Can an engineer become a doctor? If you got forced into studying engineering and want to go back to your first love - medicine (MBBS), what are your options? Let's discuss.

Yes, an engineer can become a doctor. But it won't be easy. Engineering degrees worldwide are mostly 4-year degree courses and medicine too requires an average of 4-5 years followed by mandatory internship. Not everyone has the patience, money and time to dedicate a decade only to learning.

Can data engineer work from home? Or do they have to be physically present at the work-site to get their data engineering job done? Let me answer this commonly asked question.

A data engineer can definitely work from home. The role of data engineer does not require the engineer to be physically present on-site. Why? because 99% of the data engineering work happens in the cloud. All you'll need is a strong Internet connection and credentials to login to your cloud accounts to build data pipelines.
