However, all students of Delhi University pursuing graduation or postgraduation in any stream would be able to apply for the course.

Centum Learning, with its years of experience in adding skill to personnel in the Telecom sector, is launching yet another initiative in collaboration with Delhi University, which would address the skill gap and help maintain the growth trajectory for this sector."
