Admission for WiMC and DAC course in CDAC By Common Entrance Test
Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is formed by of the Department of Information Technology (DIT), Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MC&IT), Government of India .It is started in year 1988, C-DAC had development of High Performance Computing (HPC) in the country covering interconnection networks, network connectivity and programming environment for scientific engineering, e-Governance and business applications. For fulfillment of this goal, C-DAC has advented the flexible and scalable parallel architecture, which has created 'PARAM' series of Supercomputers. C-DAC has set up the Advanced Computing Training School (ACTS) to increase skill manpower requirements of IT industry and for resource base for cutting edge research and development.ACTS gives high quality training services to countries like Mauritius, Ghana, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Dubai and Japan.
