From the official CDAC website it is confirmed that the CDAC DASDM or Diploma in Advanced Software Development Methodologies course is aimed for those who want to enter the field of computing.

CDAC believe that after the completion of the course, students can work as one of the following in the IT Industry.
  • Software Developer,
  • Programmer,
  • Tester,
  • System Analyst
To understand what exactly is taught in the CDAC DASDM course, we have to look at the subjects taught under this course.

Following are the major subjects that are taught to DASDM students.

  1. Fundamentals of Computing
  2. C & Data structure
  3. Operating System Using Unix
  4. RDBMS
  5. Software Engineering
  6. Objected Oriented Programming Concepts Using C++
  7. Core Java
  8. Web Technologies
  9. Software Quality Assurance-I
  10. Advanced Java
  11. Software Quality Assurance-II
  12. Android Programming
From these subjects it is evident that if you are doing this course after graduation in IT or Computer Science/Technology branches, it is the much essential revision of all major subjects. All these subjects form the basis of core knowledge you need to have to be able to work efficiently in a corporate IT environment on the technical role.

Anyone here has done the DASDM course? If yes, please share your experience with us. Posted in: #CDAC

Even i have been selected for the dasdm course. But the drawback is that it is a diploma course and not a PG Diploma course. So after completing Engineering how useful a diploma course will be is a big question. Any previous batch students please help? Is it worth spending 9 months and 90k rs on a diploma course after completing engineering?

I got Kandivili, Mumbai center. I took admission for the course. I surveyed a lot and came to the conclusion of taking admission. Almost all the reviews of this course and CDAC were very good. There is a placement list of this course of the students of 2013 batch on the CDAC website. Many students were placed in Barclays, Cybage Software Ltd and some other companies. As far as i know Barclays pays 50k to interns. Though I am not sure. But overall the reviews were very good. The course content is also very good and seeing the time allotted for all the subjects, the course would be rigorous.
Best Of Luck everyone!

I have completed with three terms i.e. 6 months of in college training of DASDM and my fourth term that is the internship is going on right now. I would say that both the courses are really good. I will ultimately depend on the amount of hard work and sincerity you put in and also to some extent the center you will be getting. One of the major difference between the two courses is in DAC you will be having .net and in DASDM you will be having Android. This is the only major difference in terms of subjects. Rest all the major subjects are alike with very minute differences. And another major difference is in DASDM after you complete 6 months of in college training you have a 3 months internship according to the curriculum. After those 3 months you will have your campus placements. DAC does not have internship. After the 6 months you will be directly headed to the campus placement. So according to your preference choose the one that is best suited for you.
You can ask anything else related to these courses. I will be more than happy to help.

3.In Internship will there any stipend? and is That 3 month Internship helpfull during placement?
4.How is DASDM previous placemnt record compare to DAC??

1) Interviews for the internship will be aranged by the center at which you are learning at different companies. It is their duty to help you get internship.
2)Definitely one of the pune center. But as I have said, ultimately it will be the amount of efforts and hard work you put in that will get counted.
3) Stipend completely depends on the company. I am the only lucky person in my batch to have an internship with stipend. All my other friends are working without stipend. About placement I cannot tell much because I myself am doing an internship right now. But if you get to work on some real world project, I think it will surely help.
4) The number of students in dac is way higher than that of dasdm. DAC is the flagship course of CDAC for the last 20-25 years. DASDM has just started 3-4 years back. So practically speaking DAC has better placement than DASDM. But again as I said work hard and the placement would be cake walk!

Please dont go to the dasdm coarse.I am telling bcoz i am in iacsd dasdm coarse. In which institute coarse co-ordinater behaves like he is a boss. He dont solve the problem of student.
There is always a comparsion between the dac and dasdm coarse.The teaching faculty for the dasdm like java,android faculty always pressurize the student. Everyone is fear with the faculty sono one asked the question.
The intership concept also fake. All the student work at the home. The teaching has its own company and they provide the offer letter to its student. student completed the small project and the intership will be completed. This is real time scenario of the dasdm intership.
I think that placement concept also be a fake one.
so Again I telling to all of you dont go to the dasdm coarse.It is waste of time and mainly money.
