Polaris School of Technology is offering students a unique blend of classroom learning and hands-on industry experience, ensuring they are well-equipped to enter the dynamic tech industry. With specializations in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning, the program is designed to meet the highest standards of tech education. Mukul Rustagi and Bhaswat Agarwal, with their extensive experience in the tech, have launched PST to address the gap that exists between industry requirements and job preparedness of fresh graduates of traditional BTech programs.

Mukul Rustagi, Co-founder of Classplus and Polaris School of Technology, stated, “At Polaris, we are committed to nurturing the next generation of tech leaders. Our unique approach combines rigorous academic learning with real-world experience, ensuring that our graduates are not only skilled but also industry-ready. We believe that PST will set a new standard for tech education in India and globally.”

The program at PST is based on a work-integrated degree model, focusing on 5000 hours of live coding, ensuring that students gain hands-on experience right from day one. Students will also have the opportunity to start internships from their second year, gaining practical experience and industry exposure. The faculty at PST includes top IIT alumni, tech leaders, CTOs, and founders, providing 1:1 mentorship and guidance to students.

Beyond the classroom, PST also aims to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship in the students through their inhouse incubator Polaris Tech Combinator, where students can launch and pitch their tech startups and raise seed funding of up to $10,000. Additionally, students can shadow CXOs from leading tech companies, participate in hackathons and live projects, and join tech communities like Web3, GenAI and many more to connect with like-minded techies.

Located in Bengaluru, the tech hub of India, PST offers students an immersive campus experience with easy access to leading global tech companies. The corporate campus will provide an environment conducive to professional growth, inspired by US-based masters programs where networking is at the core of the curriculum.

For the upcoming batch, PST has introduced a few first-of-its-kind scholarships, offering the students a chance to get up to a 100% waiver on the program fees. This includes merit-cum-need and merit based waivers, scholarship for tech entrepreneurs as well as women in tech.
