In 2009, IIITM-K launched a Post-graduate Diploma in e-Governance (PGDeG) to fulfill its mission to mould leaders in the areas of science, technology and management. PGDeG was directed at employees of government departments, public sector undertakings and organisations providing IT services to government bodies. The programme supported by the Government of Kerala, aims to develop professionals with a holistic view of e-governance. Those who obtain this post graduate diploma will acquire the skills, knowledge, perspective and leadership qualities needed to orchestrate complex e-governance projects in a systematic and disciplined manner. This post graduate diploma programme, an initiative of IIITM-K and the Institute of Management in Government (IMG), is a well-conceived response to address the Capacity Building in the area of e-Governance. The Government of Kerala proposed this programme based on the recommendation of the Administrative Reforms Commission, to mould trained professionals to implement and manage e-Governance projects in a disciplined manner.
The programme will also go a long way in addressing the growing need of the leading IT companies and multinational consultants, who are looking to harness the latest information and communication technologies to transform themselves and align their services with the changing needs of citizens and stakeholders. This need will translate into increased levels of activity in the area of e-governance.
This year, post graduate diploma programme is open to government officials, along with officials from Autonomous institutions, Boards, Corporations, Universities, Public Sector Undertakings etc under the State of Kerala. A number of ten (10) seats will be filled with the candidates from the Open Market.
