"With many students enrolling in courses and many students inquiring about the courses, DWIT is likely to be popularly known as the Java Training College”, says Mr. Thapaliya. Currently, Java training is ongoing for the 15th batch along with training on PHP/Laravel framework. The ongoing PHP/Laravel framework is the second training provided by the college. The first training was held on basic PHP. Then the course was re-designed to PHP/Laravel framework. The next target of the department is to run classes on Android after the festival of Tihar. For this, the department is currently working on the course design and teacher selection.
The students who perform the best in Java, selected on the basis of class performance and projects, get job opportunities at Deerwalk. Till date around 15 to 20 students have been interviewed and five people have been selected for the jobs. The students of the current batch, as well as the passed out students of Java, have also been given a 4-hour course in Android.
All the courses under DWIT training department, run for three months, except for PHP/ Laravel framework which runs for two and a half months. There are 10 to 16 students in a batch and there is a new batch of students every two to three weeks. To apply for these courses the interested students call the department. They are then counseled by the head of the department. The students find out about these courses from the college website, Facebook page and through previous batches.
