In 1995, Wipro started a program for science graduates that would enable them to study for a post-graduate degree in engineering and technology, called the Wipro Academy of Software Excellence (WASE) program, which helps Science graduates to study for a Master’s degree in Software Engineering (M.Tech). Run in partnership with the Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, India, this unique program blends rigorous academic exposure with practical professional learning at the workplace. Wipro launched yet another program with BITS Pilani, called Wipro Infrastructure Management School (WIMS) to develop and nurture an exclusive talent in IT infrastructure business, keeping the Cloud Computing as the technology theme. They run a similar program called in collaboration with Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) for science graduates to offer some specific courses like Data Scientists, VLSI and Embedded and Information Technology programs. Since its inception in 1995, Wipro has supported and enabled more than 30,000 students to pursue their higher education in Engineering with India’s Premier Engineering Institutions under the programs WASE, WiSTA and WIMS. Over 18,200 students completed their M.Tech degree in various IT disciplines over the last two decades. During FY 2019, the total number of new entrants into the three programs was 1,440 while the aggregate strength across four years was over 10,000.
